Quality, precision, professionalism, reliability and flexibility are what we are known for and always aim to deliver.
Westferry Printers is owned by the long established Northern & Shell Corporation and is the printing arm for their newspaper titles, Daily Express and Daily Star. We print well in excess of 1m copies of these newspapers and other regional titles for external customers every night.
We are a modern, dynamic company which caters for all your newspaper printing needs from conception, into production and through to distribution.
Furthermore, with our base mass, we are able to offer the lowest prices, gaining economies of scale and making best use of the efficient processes that we employ.
As the newest coldset print site in the UK, our state-of-the-art print equipment makes us one of the most technically advanced printing plants in the world. Our 4 high-speed KBA CT presses are capable of producing up to 360k copies per hour from 8 page tabloid to a 256 page tabloid with full inserting and stitching capability.
Highest Quality – newspapers, magazines, magloids & supplements
Our continuous improvement programme ensures that we always maintain the highest quality and reproductions of our products.
We have already brought two of our own magazines in-house, producing and inserting over 12m copies into our newspapers every month.
We have won and/or been nominated for the prestigious printing award of “National Newspaper Printer of the Year” every year in succession.
Commercial Printing Capabilities – stitching, trimming, inserting, endorse folding and cover attachment.
We have recently invested in finishing equipment, providing opportunities in the commercial market (including leaflets and flyers).
These high speed off-line systems offer endorse/quarter-folding with stitching into quarter fold spine; trimming up to 4 sides and multiple section and cover feeder for saddle stitching.
Flexibility – varying format sizes
We have just installed software that enables us to produce various formats and sizes away from the traditional tabloid sizing. This flexibility is unique amongst coldset newspaper printers and provides a plethora of options that allows products to stand out from the norm.
Centrally located – ideal transport links
Westferry Printers is situated in Luton, just minutes from the M1 and about 10 mins from the M25, which is convenient for all national routing. As distributors of our own titles, we already have a national network in place, which, schedule allowing, can be taken advantage of, thus maximising efficiency and cost across the entire supply chain.
