Over 45 Years in Printing

In 1969 Hobs started as a printing company with just 5 staff, providing service copying for architects, construction companies, and engineers in the Liverpool area. The company’s fleet of blue minis driven by mini-skirted girls delivering documents all around Liverpool, became well known. The company then went on to provide printing services for public utility companies, including the GPO.

We established a Manchester base in 1973 and in the mid-1990s bought businesses in Glasgow, Birmingham, Abingdon, Bristol and one in Edinburgh in 2001. The latest acquisitions were businesses in Reading in 2012, Manchester in 2013 and one London business in 2016.

We’ve always invested in the best and most cutting edge technology available and are now taking printing to a whole new dimension. Services like 3D printing and virtual reality are changing the face of the printing industry and we are driving these developments in the UK.
