Lincoln print company expands after £250k investment

An investment of over £250,000 for Lincoln-based printing company Ruddocks is continuing the expansion of the 130-year-old firm.

Thanks to a combination of recent contract wins and an increased workload, the family-run business has invested in a new £150,000 printing press and £50,000 finishing equipment and well as making building improvements.

The boost in business and the new equipment has allowed the company to take on two additional production staff with an aim to employ more people for its customer service team in the near future.

Tristan Palser, Digital Print Manager, said: “The digital print element of our business has seen a huge growth in the last four years where our output has increased by around 250%, when we add this to a recent national contract win then it has been imperative to continue to develop the offering and bring in new equipment that increases our capacity significantly.”

Paul Banton, Managing Director at Ruddocks, said: “Quality is of the utmost importance to us and our clients so we need to ensure the people we take on and the equipment we invest in contributes to increasing our overall service, that is why we are delighted with this recent expansion and the benefits it will bring.”
