Buxton Press was delighted recently to play host to a Channel 4 film crew making a documentary featuring one of its client’s publications, H&E Naturist Magazine.

Scheduled to be aired in the autumn, the filming coincided with the commissioning of Buxton’s new ten-colour Heidelberg Speedmaster XL-106 long perfecting press - the third new press in 18 months for the award-winning specialist printing company - part of an on-going £20 million re-equipping programme which reinforces Buxton Press as having one of the most efficient and modern installations of long-perfecting magazine printing presses in the UK.

Managing Director Kirk Galloway (pictured) said: “It’s a really exciting time for us.

“The additional ten colour press technology allows us to both open up interesting opportunities in our sector and fast forward our growth plans: great news for our customers as we expand our range of services and for the community at large as local employment opportunities will be created.”

The Palace Road business has been established for 70 years and offers a flexible printing service for magazines and periodicals.

The company is currently entrusted with 500 regular titles and prints in excess of 55 million magazines each year.
