About the employer

July 1999 - Solopress founded by Andy Smith and Aron Priest Solopress was born when an informal collaboration between two print start-ups in Southend developed into a solid business partnership. Andy Smith had set up business with a multilith press, and when Aron Priest moved into the unit next door with his Solna 425 machine, the pair soon began to work together.
