Prontaprint Bolton has ambitious new owners

Prontaprint Bolton has been taken over by local entrepreneurs John and Janice Bailey, who have substantially invested in new cutting-edge equipment for the print and design centre to offer a range of improved services to their business clients.

John and Janice join the company at an exciting time as Prontaprint undertakes a major brand repositioning following successful contracts with major international corporates such as British Airways, NEXT, Hush Puppies and Dixons. John, a former advertising manager, and Janice, a former Office Manager, aim to bring their robust business skills and extensive knowledge of print buying to help them grow the centre into the successful business-to-business design and print provider in the Bolton area.

John explains: 'As an entrepreneur Prontaprint has the right business formula for us to succeed. The company is a well-established and successful brand, which offers the highest quality print and design to its clients and has one of the best support infrastructures available to franchisees. Bolton is an up and coming town and one of the largest in the UK. There is a huge catchment area on our doorstep with a range of diverse businesses, many in the construction and travel & tourism industries which we handle a lot of projects for.'

Concludes Janice: 'It's been a steep learning curve so far but we expected that, however I'm sure that with our experience of dealing with larger brands it should stand us and the centre in good stead when it comes to offering high quality business print services in Bolton.
