The Design, Print & Fulfilment Company
The Design, Print & Fulfilment Company
The Company consisted of a small Graphic Studio, Film Planning Department and 4 colour and single colour presses.
New premises were purchased to house a larger litho print and machine finishing division, which also incorporated a new hand finishing/fulfilment department.
There was a Management buy-out by the Associate Directors, who each hold equal shares in the company. Upon completion of the buyout the Superior Board invested in a B1 Komori LS1040p – 5/5 Perfector 10 Colour in-line press.
The business continued to strengthen and additional Account Managers were brought in to manage the increased business. Superior invested in a new Digital print division purchasing 2 Konica Minolta Bizhub Pro C6500e SRA3 printers along with a range of digital finishing equipment. The Board invited 3 senior managers to become Associate Directors.
Superior increased its’ digital division by expanding into the large format market by investing in an Inca flatbed Spyder, accompanied by a Zund G3 digital cutter.
Superior took the decision to launch a Direct mail arm offering folding, stitching, enclosing and poly-wrapping
The digital offering was further strengthened by investing in a state of the art Kodak Nexpress SE2500 digital press. In this year we were also successful in achieving registration to the ISO14001 environmental management standard.
Superior purchased its first Inca Onset S40 flatbed press.
With the staffing levels in excess of 120, a decision was taken to build an additional 6000 square feet of office space to allow all sales, production and admin employees to work alongside the studio to improve workflow and communication. The offices being officially opened on 7th March 2012. The growth of our large format business increased Superior’s turnover to £15 million.
