The Scottish Government framework will run for four years and spans a broad range of areas, including local authorities, central government, affordable housing, education, charities, and voluntary associations, as well as the health service.

“We are honoured to be awarded these contracts, which bolster our commitment to providing outstanding litho print, digital, wide-format and mailing services across Scotland,” said Janette McAllister, managing director of MLG.

“Our deep understanding of public sector communications will enable us to deliver high-quality, cost-effective print and digital solutions across the varied sectors of the Scottish Government framework.”

The National Galleries of Scotland contract will see MLG produce the What’s On guide and event programmes. The firm said this partnership will see it bring its creativity and expertise in print to a national audience, “enhancing the cultural experience of visitors to the galleries and further amplifying Scotland's vibrant arts scene”.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity to work closely with National Galleries of Scotland,” said McAllister.

“Creative print has always been at the heart of what we do at MLG, and it feels fitting to be collaborating with an institution that represents and celebrates these values.”

Operating from circa-3,700sqm premises, MLG operates two B1 Komori litho presses, including one with a reel sheeter, two B3 Heidelberg litho presses, Konica Minolta digital printers, and Epson and Roland DG wide-format kit.

It also runs a wide range of finishing equipment from manufacturers including MBO, Muller Martini, Polar, Autobond, and Heidelberg.

Last winter the business helped its 42 staff meet rocketing fuel bills with a financial package worth £3,500 each.
