Take a Fresh Look at Charlesworth...

A few changes have been occurring at Charlesworth over recent months. Our branding has been freshened up and our trading name changed to Charlesworth Press, reflecting our heritage but also to reinforce our positioning as a major player in the printing industry.

Not only have there been visible changes to our external look but major investment in the business has also been taking place, particularly in our digital printing capabilities. A new digital print room has been created at our premises in Wakefield to house numerous additional digital presses, two of which are web-fed, with both in-line to folded sections and in-line to book blocks.

As part of the ongoing expansion and investment in the way we deliver our services, Charlesworth has added further binding and finishing equipment to our existing facilities, installed a new MIS system to streamline administration, and is also considering increasing capacity in litho printing and recruiting additional manufacturing staff.

The combination of extensive litho and digital printing equipment together with in-house binding and finishing provides our clients with the most flexible, fast turnaround, cost effective solutions for short and medium run print. Charlesworth's cutting-edge C-Print+ web-to-print system is now up and running, enabling clients to procure and manage their print online.

I am delighted with the way Charlesworth Press continues to grow and evolve to meet the needs of the constantly changing demands of the markets we serve. Ongoing investment is being made to enable us to produce print more effectively and efficiently, therefore allowing us to give our clients more competitive pricing while continuing to provide the same quality and environmentally friendly products they know they will receive from Charlesworth.
