Family values have been at the heart of our work since 1975. Together with our enduring standards, we have earned the loyalty of many prominent clients, including the Royal Household. We were a founding member of our trade association, the IPIA (Independent Print Industries Association).
Nick Robey founded ‘Systematic Printing Company’ which started trading as a partnership, with his wife Marilyn. The business supplied computer stationery, back in the days of dot-matrix printers, when punched and perforated paper was an office must-have!
Daughter-in-law Sharon Robey joined the team in 1994, before being joined by her husband, and Nick’s son, Chris Robey. Husband and wife team, Chris and Sharon took our work with market-leading businesses across the UK to the next level, whilst embedding our values of quality, service, value and trust.
Systematic was the first print management company to achieve accreditation to international quality standard BS 5750 in 1992, which has now become ISO 9001. In 2009, the company also gained accreditation to the environmental standard ISO 14001. These systems underpin all aspects of our operations and are used to shape our continuous improvement processes. If you would like a copy of our Quality or Environmental Policies, please get in touch.
Our friendly clients know our privately owned business as ‘Systematic’. They work in varied industries, across the UK, typically organisations with multiple sites and a turnover of over £5 million a year. We have grown and diversified as we respond to their needs and those of our new clients. The products and services that we offer fall within the headline categories of design, print, mailing and marketing resources. Yet, as you’d expect, there are lots of details that we apply to projects that support your business goals.
In our third era of ownership, we can no longer claim to be a family business, yet family values continue to guide the work of our creative, agile and trusted team. Click here for a virtual introduction to the team that is here to support you as you win business and do business.
