Half year results from Communisis gives print industry hope
August 3, 2011 by Michael
Any Blundell, the Chief Executive of Communisis, recently told the Liverpool Daily Post:
“We are making good progress against our plans to grow and transform the business and this confidence is reflected in the interim dividend.”
This comes as Communisis announced an increase in pre-tax profits when compared to the first six months of 2010. Their total profits rose from £2.2 million to £2.5 million, a small yet significant increase that shows the business is heading in the right direction.
At a time when the printing industry in the UK is feeling the pinch and many companies are downsizing and making staff redundant, this is a ray of hope that the green shoots of economic recovery are beginning to show in the printing world. Many large printing firms find themselves being challenged by smaller, local firms who can offer a more convenient and more bespoke service to local businesses, large contracts are being broken down and handed to smaller printers; not only as a way to achieve a more tailored approach but also as a way to avoid putting all ones eggs in one basket, so to speak.
Printing companies in Liverpool offering bespoke solutions like business card and stationery printing can help Liverpool businesses to find new ways of working to help them meet their own cost challenges and commercial targets.
