Print and visual communications specialist Callprint has announced a significant 30% increase in its first six month sales revenues for 2015, a record number for the group, with the business on track for further growth going forward as the company continues to evolve and develop.
Callprint Group has revealed that sales figures for the first six months of 2015 are approaching £8m, showing an increase of 30% year-on-year, as the new plans for the business that were announced last year, have begun to take shape.
The company has also announced further development for the business, which will involve improvements to both its internal and external communications, including an updating and revamping of its websites, as well as a refresh and refurbishment of a number of its production facility hubs around the UK.
In addition, the company will also seek to improve in efficiency where appropriate, as well as ensuring it provides added value services wherever possible for its clients.
The business has seen the largest areas of growth for its services in the retail, sports, commercial property and experiential sectors.
Callprint revealed ambitions last year to double the size of its business in two years, as it looked to grow and develop to achieve its target of £25m turnover within two years. This is now being achieved through a process of organic growth and recruitment of new personnel, along with a number of key sites becoming 24/7 operations.
Commenting on the first quarter results, Callprint Group investor and Director, Ben Moss, stated, “Jupiter Visual Communications is now fully integrated into the group, and we have been successful in undertaking several key projects over the year, including the 2015 Saudi Super Cup Final in London, retail campaigns for H&M, and an interactive display project for the NFL at Five Guys restaurants.”
Ben added, “We have also won work in Sweden, Portugal, Singapore and Hong Kong, reflecting the growing global image and reputation of Callprint. As we continue to grow we will be looking for high profile individuals to join the group as we look to spearhead our growth.
We announced last year what we intended to do with the group with our plans to develop the business at a fast pace, and we are now starting to get traction with our plans. Sales are growing, and we are increasing our market share and business on service, quality, professionalism and delivery, and not just on price!”
Callprint Managing Director, Steve Cheek stated, “The results are a great reflection on the performance of the business, and the group as a whole, and show that we are on track with our intentions for the company going forward.
We have and are continuing to invest in the company, acquiring new facilities where appropriate, and increasing our footprint and reputation both in the UK and globally. The figures are an endorsement not only of the business, but importantly our employees, and show that our clients know that we can provide a full-service print communication provision, whatever their requirements, and wherever it is needed.”
Over the past year Callprint has also invested heavily in new equipment across a number of its business operations in the UK and Dubai, including recruitment drives both in the UK and UAE, and this will continue with intentions to develop its salesforce in both the Midlands and North West regions.
Callprint has also been expanding its regional hubs with the acquisition of PPS Print Communications in Manchester, and its Birmingham hub recently moved to a much larger premises in the Midlands, adding new equipment and services in the process.
Its flagship London hub at Great Portland Street is also undergoing a revamp, and this will see other key sites undergo a refurbishment.
This latest announcement of the first quarter sales figures underlines Callprint’s statement of intent to grow and develop its business operations (following the addition of Jupiter Visual Communications as a stand-alone business last year).
