Weathering a tough industry

In a difficult environment, where companies are falling by the wayside, most recently with the announcement that major names in the retail sector, including House of Fraser and Mothercare, were suffering, celebrating a decade in business is always an achievement.

DCB Group, which is made up of print management company Print Search, creative and design agency Caspa and print on demand company Aspen, will celebrate its tenth anniversary this month.

David Beale, who previously worked in print management since 1996 and had been a director of a number of print companies, founded the DCB Group in 2008. Beale wanted to take the business from a £3m turnover company to a £10m business, investing over £750,000 into new equipment to take Print Search forward. The company prints menus, corporate literature, promotional posters, flyers and other materials. Print Search has a list of blue chip key clients, including the Lowry Theatre, NUS and Premier League football clubs.

To be honest, I believe there will always be a demand and a place for printed media as people like to look, touch and feel it. Print brings a depth and permanence

Moving forward, the DCB Group acquire Caspa in 2012, allowing the business to offer an all-round communications service. Gaining Caspa also brought with it further major clients including Carlsberg.

Victoria Hart, managing director of the DCB Group, comments on reaching a substantial landmark: “Print will remain a vital industry. In a digital world, printing is as necessary as ever. You only have to look at theatre programmes, football programmes, billboards by the road, labels, posters etc. Print is a fundamental part of daily life and helps lots of other industries to conduct business.

Hart concludes: “To be honest, I believe there will always be a demand and a place for printed media as people like to look, touch and feel it. Print brings a depth and permanence.”
