Colin Wilding of Harrogate Printing added: "The consolidation of all our equipment, staff and skills will take the company into the future as one of the foremost providers of quality print in the North of England. It is a very positive and exciting move.”
"In addition to traditional litho and digital print, we can offer large format print, signage and Mailing services.”
