Ricoh Production Print & Minuteman Press

Challenges

With operationsin the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, South Africa and the United States, Minuteman Press International has been rated more than once as the number one Printing Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine. Graham Moody is the Managing Director of Minuteman Press Coventry Limited, a franchise that serves the print needs of the West Midlands and beyond.

As a commercial printer Minuteman Pressis alwayslooking at how it can deliver more high quality products and services. With increasing customer requirements such as colour printing, personalisation and demanding timescales, printers are under pressure to modernise. Indeed,traditional printing methods have dropped in recent years as part of a wider shift towards digital communications, as Moody points out, “Print still plays a major partin our customers’ communications, but we needed to find a way of helping them with as many new, added-value services as possible.”

Providing such services at competitive pricesis a challenge for most printers.“Smallerprintruns andfasterturnaroundtimes are typical of jobsthat now flow through the printshop, but offering flexibility should not come at the expense of quality, high volume printruns,” says Moody. 

As a forward-thinking printer, Minuteman Press chose to focus on digital production printing and consultancy, enlisting the help of Ricoh to source and support their investment in new technology.
