History

Maypole Press & Publishing was started back in 1966 by Jim Robinson. Originally started as a publishing company, Jim having previously worked for Robert Maxwell, decided to go it alone. One of his first ventures was Homec, a homeconomics refernce book for teachers, this was really well recieved, but the teachers didnt want to purchase a new book every year and this became a problem, Jim ventured into other avenues, at one point typsetting books for comapnies such as Mills and Boon. In 1986 Maypole moved into woodham into a small office, people started popping in asking if we printed, before we knew it, we were printing for the majority of the companies in Woodham, inthe years to come, the printing side of the business went from strength to strength and by the mid 90’s we were spending a lot of money on improving machinery and buying cutting edge technology. We still print for some of the companies from back in the 80’s, but most of the companies have fallen by the wayside. We continue to invest in equipment at a difficult time in the printing industry, but always aim to stay as current as we possibly can. In 2014 we invested in digital print equipment to be able to offer companies smaller choice when it comes to run lengths, we also invested in a wide format machine, that allows us to print large banners and posters and in 2016 we spent over £100,000 on a new binding line that enables us to produce magazines and brochures to the higest standard avaliable today.

 

Maypole continues with its ethos of producing work that it cares about. If we spot a problem with a job, we stop and sort the problem out, wherever possible, so that the company concerned is happy and not forced to reprint. We produce work in 5 days which allows us time to make sure the job is right first time and everytime.
