Meet New Investor to Somerset - Print Guy

National Print Brokering company, Print Guy is newly relocated to Somerset. Owner and manager, Guy Green, chose Bishops Lydeard in Somerset as the best location to set up his South West office and relocated in 2010 following assistance from Somerset 3D.

Guy says ‘I have been a printer for nearly 40 years, and my print broker business means I can be based anywhere in the country.  I know where and how to buy print, I understand the jargon and can dodge the pitfalls. By using me, as your print supplier - you get the right price from the right printer, with the right press on every single job. I always work to your advantage, personally looking after you and your printing, to ensure everything is as it should be.”

Guy contacted the Somerset 3D team for assistance once the decision to move to the South West for both business and family reasons had been made.” Somerset 3D, and investment Manager, Gerard Tucker especially, offered much advice and support.  He gave me the confidence that I wouldn’t be on my own. He was an invaluable source of local knowledge.  From a business perspective he provided introductions to networking opportunities and new contacts.  All in all exactly what a new business in a new area needs.” 

“Somerset is great for Print Guy too.  I am developing the SW branch of the business very well.  People are friendly to work with and so there is an added personal element to what I deliver.  I like that very much.  The existing network of Somerset businesses is keen to work with new local businesses – they have been welcoming and have made what could be a tricky start-up time as good as it possibly can be.”

“Somerset is wonderful for family life.  We live at the foot of the Quantock Hills in a very friendly village.  The sea is just a short hop away.  The children love the local primary school and everyone in the family has made very good friends.  Of course we had concerns leaving London behind, but we could not be happier with the move.”

Rupert Cox CEO of Somerset 3D added “Guy’s is just one of over 40 businesses that have been helped to relocate and to start trading successfully in the county, creating over 700 jobs since the Somerset 3D project started 3 years ago. Each business we work with has a unique set of requirements and considerations to take into account – so just like Guy, Somerset 3D offers a quality service that is tailored to businesses specific needs. ”

Guy ’s business extends beyond print to design, mailing services, websites and promotional goods. For further information visit www.printguy.co.uk  Tel: 01823 433514.
