Who We Are

County Print – 3rd generation family run business

Harry Bertram was sales person for a paper supplier and then at a large printing firm. Frustrated by the rigidity of the pricing and with many clients going elsewhere, Harry decided that he could do better on his own. County Print was formed.

Established on 1st November 1981 by Harry and ran from home, it was initially run as a print farming company until 1983. Harry’s eldest son, Rob then joined the business and they decided that they could do better than just picking up and delivering boxes. So, with a £3000 investment, a premises was rented and the first press plus other pieces of essential equipment were bought. Rob’s previous job was a print finisher at a poster printing company but was trained at college to also print.

Harry’s youngest son, Tony, in 1986 decided that he would like to be part of the growing family business and so left the Army and started work straight away as a press operator but subsequently, went on to be trained at college in the art of printing and design.

Moving forward a few years from then, all three were partners of the business and were employing staff as work continued to grow. Sarah, who is still with us today, is the main press operator and has worked on countless jobs of all shapes and sizes over the years.

County Print still has customers ordering today and who have been for over 30 years!

As the years flew by, investments in machinery were continually being made to bring better quality and turnaround times to County Print’s customers.

In 2001, it was Rob’s turn to introduce his son, Richard, to the business. Richard joined after college to become a press operator and was trained by Rob, Tony and Sarah. A few years after that, Rob’s daughter Suzi joined and was trained in both printing and print finishing. Suzi is now the main print finisher and has a great eye for detail.

With 3 generations of the family having worked for and still working for the company, making up the mainstay of the workforce, it’s important to us that we give the same level of service and care to all clients and jobs, no matter how small or large their printing requirements may be
