60 seconds with Ace Binding Company

PrintWeek Team
Monday, June 24, 2019

Ace Binding Company was born out of the love director Robert Hart had for the industry. Founded 16 years ago, with a couple of folders, a guillotine and stitching line, it was a move into PUR binding and, more recently wire-binding (and a fair few other investments) that took the business into the Premier League of trade finishing.
