Kenads was started in the summer of 1982 by Ken Strudwick, the father of current managing director Ian Strudwick.

The firm started off supplying estate agents with document wallets. A £600 government enterprise investment proved to be a defining moment, and the company now offers a wide range of printing and finishing options. “To this day we are still a family run business with a reputation for quality work, first class customer service whilst always giving excellent value for money.”
