Graphic Plc are delighted to have been announced the winner of the Made in the South West Manufacturer of the Year (under £25 million). Against strong competition, Graphic impressed the judges with the scale of its growth.
South West Business Insider editor David Clensy championed the region's manufacturing prowess and achievements. "The South West has one of the largest concentrations of high value manufacturers in the UK," he said. "We should be proud of our manufacturing and advanced engineering community—from the great food and drink brands to the cutting-edge aerospace and defence companies driving innovation in the region."
“This is a recognition for our team. We believe that Graphic stands out as a positive beacon for other organisations in the region to show what a south west business can become. Graphic has grown from its humble roots as a small family run business to the multi-million pound operation it is today. In 2018 we celebrated our 50th year of business at the forefront of the international printed circuit industry; and we are continuing to push the boundaries of innovation and technology,” David Pike, Graphic Plc’s CEO commented.
“The company has achieved sustained growth over the past 5 years. We have robustly increased turnover and profit year on year, whilst continuing to invest in new machinery, technology and additional capability, to meet the current and future needs of our customers. Graphic has always put its employees to the fore, and supporting the ongoing training and development of our team is vital for future business success,” Pike continued.
