Company History

Company History Image.jpg“Like all industries, the printing trade has seen many changes over the years.  When I joined my first company, The Formprint Group, in 1978 most orders in the print trade were produced in house by the printer and very little work was outsourced"

"Formprint were a manufacturing company based in Halesowen in the West Midlands. Their strength was short run print where they offered extremely competitive prices and quick turnarounds”

“Shortly after joining, it became obvious to me that the company struggled to compete on larger print runs and I approached my boss and suggested trying to outsource work as well as produce in the companies own factory in order to become more competitive and service more customers"

"He agreed and a new company, Formfactor, was set up in 1982 to invoice Formprint customers for jobs produced outside of Formprint by a trade house. Formfactor was a great success and quickly established a £4 million annual turnover".

"Over the years there has been a considerable increase in printing companies following this approach to outsourcing print orders."

“In 1995, with the valuable experience I gained in the printing industry at Formprint including holding the role of Managing Director for several years, I decided to start my own print broker business along with my son Ian and wife Kay.  R & K Robinson was formed and initially commenced trading in Birmingham"

"Over the first few years we focussed largely on supplying bespoke continuous stationery but as the business became established and technology reduced the cost of full colour printing we started to increase the range of printed stationery products that we supply"

"We relocating to Stourport on Severn in Worcestershire in 2006 and our website was first launched in 2007. The site was redesigned in 2011 with additional pages to better reflect the products and services that we now offer."

"Now in our 22nd year of business, R & K Robinson look forward to supplying our valued customers with quality printed stationery for many years to come”.
