First it was the Queen's Jubilee celebrations followed by the euphoria of the Olympics, then the awe-inspiring Paralympics, and numerous other British sporting success stories along the way. What a great British Summer this has been (aside from the weather of course!).
Against this backdrop of Great British success, 2012 has been our busiest Summer in production – ever! The strong demand for our book and journal production services has continued to increase during the year with several significant new contracts won, combined with a bumper crop of orders for educational print for schools and colleges.
As a result of investment in low volume print, print on demand and medium to longer run colour printing, finishing and mailing, plus online ordering technology, we continue to serve an expanding range of publishers looking for excellent quality of product and service, combined with excellent value for their publications.
The Board is currently evaluating options for further investment looking to increase capacity in some areas as well as offering potential new services, ensuring Charlesworth Press remains at the forefront of the British book printing industry well in to the future.
As part of our planned expansion and investment programme, a new faster and more efficient stitching line has been installed to replace an older model for producing wire stitched (stapled) publications, reports, leaflets and brochures.
The recent installation of a new fully automated mailing line is the final piece in the jigsaw for Charlesworth Press' wider print on demand plans.
