250th Anniversary

250th Anniversary

In 2018, we celebrate our 250th Anniversary. Back in 1768 our founder, the original Stephen Austin, established a printing business to provide materials for Hertfordshire’s county elections. Our company is now at the forefront of electoral printing and fulfilment for organisations throughout the UK and abroad.

Over the years, the Stephen Austin business broadened and our first examination paper was printed in 1842. We now produce and distribute examination materials for Ministries of Education and assessment bodies world-wide.

Today, the company employs nearly 200 people at our secure Hertford site where we use the latest technologies for printing our clients’ confidential materials.
