Social Responsibility

As a local family-run company we believe in conducting business ethically and with sensitivity towards local, social and environmental issues. We supply many organisations in the VCSE (Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise) sector and in doing so it provides us with an opportunity to become informed of the challenges many in our wider community face.

Environmental Responsibility

We are committed to a positive environmental approach in every aspect of our business. Our experience over 5 decades has given us extensive knowledge of how our customers can minimise their environmental impact in the print arena. Our product portfolio provides solutions that can minimise your environmental impact through reductions in overall print/copy volumes, as well as the associated financial and environmental savings that a modern print solution delivers. In Canon and Kyocera we have partners with an excellent record concerning both this and

sustainability more broadly.
