The digital print operation based in Enfield was founded by Chris Brady and business partner Adrian Ford in October 2008, and it has grown from a two-man scheme into a full-fledged operation taking in 13 members of staff as well as consultants and casual workers.
Having won the British Association for Print & Communication (BAPC) business of the year award in 2018, Print4UK will move into the next decade with a celebratory event at Leadenhall, central London, to which it will invite clients and colleagues in January. The event will be the 10th annual client event it has hosted.
Director of corporate services John Attard said: “Chris Brady started Print4UK and he took a massive risk when he bought out Adrian Ford last December.
“He did it so that he could develop the company further and, in a very short time, has increased the volume of work and number of clients.
“He is committed to looking after his staff, and our clients cannot sing his, or Print4UK’s, praises highly enough. Through his drive, innovation, creativity and inventiveness there is a real sense of security at Print4UK that is not common in the climate.”
Heading into 2020, Print4UK’s key focus will be on environmental issues as the company works hard to reduce its own carbon footprint as well as promoting the practice of carbon offsetting to its clients.
A personalised Christmas pack is currently in the post to clients which contains a plant pot made of recycled paper and some soil in which to grow a plant that will allow companies to begin their own attempts at carbon offsetting.
Using an HP Indigo 7900 digital press – which was upgraded this year to run with silver ink alongside flexible, white and clear – as well as a wide gamut of finishing kit at its 370sqm site, Print4UK turned over £1.2m in its last financial year.
