County Durham firm invests thousands as turnover triples
A Darlington company has made a major investment in its operations after more than tripling its turnover in 2012.
Addo Printing, based at Silverlink Business Park, has invested in new state-of-the-art equipment to enhance its operations and has also recruited a new production director after seeing its turnover increase from around £150,000 to just over half a million pounds in the last six months.
The company, run by Kieran Bayley, has invested over £40,000 in high-tech machinery which can operate at super-high speeds to increase efficiency and ultimately result in cost-savings for clients.
Addo Printing was established in 2008 and currently employs a team of eight with plans to increase this to twelve in the next twelve months.
Anthony Bayley, has recently joined Addo Printing from another North East printing company as production director bringing with him over 20 years’ experience in the industry. Anthony Bayley will be responsible for day to day production and management at Addo.
Addo Printing specialises in cost-effective, high quality printing services for print management and design companies as well as marketing and creative agencies all over the North of England.
Managing director of Addo Printing, Keiran Bayley, said: “2012 has already exceeded our own expectations and we have surpassed targets which is extremely encouraging in the current economic climate. However, we are passionate about continually expanding and enhancing our services so investment is essential- in both technology and manpower.
“Now is the ideal time to make this investment- making us one of the most technologically advanced printing firms in the North East- and allows us to increase our workload, take on a wide variety of projects and make our operations even more efficient thus meaning we can pass savings onto clients whilst offering the highest quality of service.”
Addo Printing has achieved the ISO 9001 standard for quality management as well as being recognised as a member of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) which promotes the responsible management of forests.
