About the employer

Established in 1996, we at Bahson Colour have gone from strength to strength. Originally comprising of just one B1 five colour press, a handful of small clients, three staff and a lot of energy, we have now grown to a full-scale printing distribution organisation handling accounts for the likes of Next, Marks and Spencer's and Carphone Warehouse, with two large presses running 24/7. A lot has changed in 25 years since we began; but what remains consistent is our energy and love for what we do.
