Thursday, August 06, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Company to leverage Cimpress’ global scale and mass customisation capabilities to provide greater product selection for its reseller customers  

Dundee - Tradeprint, the leading trade printer in the UK, is joining Cimpress N.V., the world leader in mass customisation. The acquisition of Tradeprint was completed on July 31, 2015. 

“The number one job of everyone at Tradeprint is to make our customers successful,” said managing director Rod Scrimgeour. “We are proud to provide outstanding quality, reliability, delivery speed and service at very competitive prices. Thanks to the financial, technological, product breadth and supply chain strength at Cimpress, we look forward to delivering even greater value to our customers.”

“Resellers and graphic professionals greatly value reliable, professional, rapid delivery of high-quality, price-competitive products,” said Robert Keane, president and chief executive officer of Cimpress. “With Tradeprint, we’ve found a partner that delivers consistently on those criteria thanks to a highly talented and focused team.  We welcome them to Cimpress and look forward to helping them build upon that very strong foundation.” 

Based in Dundee, Tradeprint specialises in small-format printed products including flyers, leaflets, business cards, posters, letterheads and compliment slips. Dedicated account managers share a site with the production team and can work with customers on technical advice.  

“We believe that speed is one of the next frontiers in the trade print business. Tradeprint offers same day production and next day delivery throughout the UK. That is an incredibly valuable service to resellers who are usually operating under very tight deadlines” said Keane. “Beyond that and other aspects of Tradeprint’s already robust capabilities, the Cimpress mass customisation platform will enable them to increase the breadth and depth of the product range offered to their customers, and to benefit from our scale and knowledge in manufacturing and supply chain operations.”
