A Penzance printing company is bucking the economic trend by moving to larger premises and increasing its range of services to meet growing customer demand.
Two years after taking over as the owner of Plusprint, on Longrock Industrial Estate, Justin Dennington has seen the business outgrow its original premises as demand for its services has grown significantly.
The company has now moved to a larger commercial unit on the estate, as part of its expansion and is now working with some of the Duchy’s leading names, such as the Cornish Pirates, Warrens Bakers and Trevarno Estate, providing them with a wide range of print, signage, graphics and exhibition materials.
According to Dennington, while many print companies in the region have faced difficult times, the decision to launch a range of new services to complement the traditional print offering, has paid dividends.
He said: “We have been delighted with the way the business has performed over the last 12 months, which has seen us outgrow our original premises. The launch of the new services means that our customers can come to us for everything from a letterhead and business card through to a full vehicle livery or promotional banners.”
The Cornish Pirates are one of the latest organisations to benefit from the wider services offered by Plusprint, having recently had a community outreach vehicle liveried and signage produced.
Mike Crump, Cornish Pirates community development officer, remarked: “Justin and his team have been very proactive and have become far more than a traditional print company. From our perspective it means we have been able to work with one local supplier to create a number of materials, which will be used at events and community initiatives around the county.”
