Print firm makes £300k investment

A Belfast printing company is enjoying a double celebration after announcing a £300,000 investment and marking its centenary.

GPS Colour Graphics is one of Northern Ireland's largest commercial in-house digital and litho printing firms, employing 70 people in the east of the city.

After injecting £2.2m into the business last year, the firm has announced a further £300,000 investment in short run digital print and new technology.

GPS has also unveiled a new corporate identity and website and launched its unique 'PrintStore' software.

Owner Derek Bell said that 2012 had been a landmark year.

"Although the company has been in operation in various ownerships for 215 years, we are celebrating our 100th anniversary as an incorporated company with high growth, increased productivity and continued investment in our technology and skilled workforce," he said.

"Due to new contracts we have created 15 new jobs over the last 12 months, bringing the total employed to 70," said Mr Bell.
