Jersey based Stanley Gibbons Group, the AIM listed company which trades in premium stamps and collectibles, has opened two new offices in Jersey to accommodate its e-commerce and mail order growth plans.
New offices on the second floor of Minden House, Minden Place, St Helier will now house the corporate management team and will also form the hub of the developing e-commerce business. The offices have been recently refurbished to fulfil the Stanley Gibbons’ digital ambitions and the company is actively recruiting in Jersey for this part of the business following the acquisition of an online trading platform late last year.
The company has also relocated its Benham first day cover business from Albert Pier to premises in New Street, St Helier. This relocation provides for greater capacity that will be required as the company expands its mail order business from Jersey and also provides a local retail outlet for Benham’s products.
Stanley Gibbons will continue to operate its stamp and collectibles investment business from its prominent Hill Street showroom.
Donal Duff (pictured), finance director, says: “I am pleased that we have been able to secure two new premises under leasehold arrangements to facilitate our growth plans. The company is particularly excited about the opportunities in the online marketplace and is very much looking forward to developing this opportunity. The States of Jersey Population Office has been particularly supportive as we step up our efforts to employ staff with the appropriate skillsets to ensure we are successful in the execution of this important part of our strategy.”
