Jones & Brooks founded the company in Shaw, near Oldham
in 1876. The purpose was to fulfill a local printing need.
A printing service was required to support an unprecedented
growth in both literacy and communications.
Our initial product ranges was essentially focused on
the local cotton industry with church magazines, street
directories, delivery books, bookbinding and ration books.
the 1950’s, the cotton industry began to decline
and The Company was hit hard. However, drawing on our
wealth of experience which we are renowned for, we were
able to branch out into new areas of expertise.
A new National Health Service had recently been set up,
so with the acquisition of new printing machines and technology,
a whole new avenue of business was opened. We helped develop
carbonless paper for multi-part sets for reporting and
mount sheets for patients records
the last few years, we have invested in state-of-the-art
machinery and technology which has increased our efficiency
and allowed us to respond to our customers needs and to
become much more competitive with our prices.
We have recently moved to a new 43,000 square foot facility
in Rochdale, where we expect to improve our status and,
most importantly, our customer service.
