Website: the Metloc firm’s online presence continues

Metloc Printers of 37 Victoria Rd, Romford, ceased trading in November but a new firm called Aysgarth has begun business from the same address, but on a ‘smaller scale’. The new outfit also uses the same phone number as the previous printers, but according to a spokesperson is yet to have its own website. The website for Metloc Printers was still up at time of going to press but had not been updated recently, nor had the firm’s Twitter account.


Insolvency practitioners Richard Jeffery Roses of Essex began the commencement of winding up under a creditors voluntary liquidation last month. The printers founded in 1967, and run partly by the Metcalfe family, described itself as ‘offering high quality printing to a range of companies, societies’ which included literature for the local MP Douglas Carswell.

Aysgarth is a small town in North Yorkshire but there is a linguistic link between Metloc Printers and the new print company Aysworth; Ms Valerie Metcalfe was involved in the defunct firm but remains a director of Aysworth Properties in the Essex town.
