The original business was founded in 1990 and was called Proof and Print. Mike Roberts took over the business back in 2004 and initially had a team of three: himself, a graphic designer and a production assistant.

Mike also purchased sister company Wentworth Business Services, combining the two businesses as PMG Print Management. Over the last 14 years PMG has steadily grown and now lays claim to being one of the UK’s leading independent print management companies.
