Birmingham Business Park has released a special digital magazine to highlight the Park occupiers and tenants who have adapted to support the UK-wide COVID-19 effort.

The special edition of the Park’s seasonal ‘Our Community’ magazine has been created by Edwin Ellis Creative Media.

The digital magazine features companies such as IMI, Minebea Intec and Goodyear, who have adapted production to help combat the coronavirus pandemic.

Also featured is Business Park-based Rolls-Royce, which is part of the VentilatorChallengeUK Consortium and has been working hard to investigate production of a range of ventilator design options to help increase the UK’s supply of ventilators.

Set within 148 acres of mature parkland along the M42 corridor, multi-award-winning Birmingham Business Park is the most established out-of-town office park in the Midlands with 15,000 people working there.

Edwin Ellis Creative Media has launched a new digital magazine for people to read online or download during the coronavirus lockdown.

The PR and publishing agency, founded in 2015 by former Birmingham Post editor Stacey Barnfield, has created the Journal of History & Nostalgia, which covers Birmingham, the Black Country and Coventry.

Using the latest digital publishing software the magazine can be read on any digital device or downloaded to read offline.

It features links to websites for museums and heritage sites and covers news about local history and regeneration projects plus a look at the virtual gallery tours being offered by Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery during its closure to the public.

Stacey Barnfield explained how he hopes the magazine will evolve into a printed publication, distributed across the Midlands, to help raise the profile of the area, its history and heritage after coronavirus closures.

“I’ve always wanted to launch a local history magazine that appeals to families who have grown up in the Midlands and have family connections to its biggest brands; the likes of Jaguar, Cadbury and Rover. There are lovely stories behind these incredible organisations that I hope to share through the magazine.

“However, with print publishing being impacted by coronavirus, it seemed appropriate to try a shorter digital ‘stay-at-home’ version first. I’m really pleased with the response and getting some positive feedback.”
