Cheek: reinforces our position as a company of growth

The London-based company has had a site in Dubai since 2011 with 10 staff and now wants to establish a second, following growth servicing the booming architectural, construction and design sectors.

It is planning to recruit new sales and support staff and project managers from the UK and relocate them to the Middle East. The Dubai office currently has three British workers, with colleagues from the Philippines and India.

Regional sales director Richard Sanders said: "It's busy, we're winning lots of new business. We're bringing the western way to print over here in terms of quality control, service and communication. Doing the simple things well is where we're being successful."

Callprint Dubai has many clients with an international footprint, who it also works for in the UK, including law firms, construction companies and PR firms.

Callprint Group managing director Steve Cheek said the company had decided to add a second print facility following feedback from clients.

“This reinforces our position as a company of continued growth, development and expansion, not only in the UK but, more importantly, globally,” he said.

The company, established by Terry Rutter, Alan Cheek and Norman Krangel in 1992, now has a turnover of £12.5m but wants to double this through acquisitions and recruitment.

Last month it acquired Manchester high-street print, design and direct mail company PPS Print Communications to add to three strategic hubs in London, Merseyside and Birmingham, where it doubled the size of its offering in May.

It also invested £350,000 in Xerox kit, purchasing three Xerox Versant 2100 printers and a Xerox Color J75.
