CPI Antony Rowe is probably a major local success story which you haven’t heard about.
Not only is CPI Antony Rowe one of the area’s major employers, with close to 250 people on the payroll, but recent investments, totalling £15.5m, make it one of the most technologically advanced companies, not only in the Wiltshire area, but in the global print industry.
Yet despite being at the forefront of print development, CPI Antony Rowe still retains the feel of a good old-fashioned family firm, which isn’t surprising, the company has strong family ties to the area, with several generations of local people working at the firm – sons and daughters work alongside mums and dads.
They can print by the unit or runs of several hundred thousand copies, in a wide range of formats and finishes, claiming unequalled level of quality. And thanks to the work of the CPI team, who are constantly designing new products, they continuously innovate.
“Printing may be a traditional industry, but we’re convinced it’s an industry of the future,” said CPI Antony Rowe’s divisional general manager, Martin Collyer
It’s at CPI Antony Rowe, with an annual turnover of £36m, where the print industry’s rich tradition dovetails seamlessly with the contemporary digital world, the firm having introduced new and emerging technology at its site in Bowerhill, Melksham.
Mr Collyer added: “CPI Antony Rowe is a thriving business, and as recent investment levels suggest, we are offering long-term employment and development opportunities to the people of Wiltshire.”
That investment in both technology and people has seen the CPI Antony Rowe recruit 60 people in the last five years, an expansion of roughly 25 per cent of the workforce.
