MacroArt will invest in both kit and people in 2021 as it continues to focus on new markets to counter a downturn in work related to live events.
The company - which brought in nearly £1m of new business during 2020, focusing on markets such as the museum and property sectors – will take on three new print technicians in mid February as part of its apprenticeship programme.
The bespoke programme, supported by learning provider Learn2Print, delivers training in all areas of the company’s business including printing, hand finishing, cutting and stitching, developing trainees’ skills along a Level 3 print technician pathway which is equivalent to three A levels.
Investment is also being earmarked for new equipment and system enhancements during the coming year to support the company’s ability to deliver the best possible service and introduce a number of sustainable graphic options.
“It is clear that 2021 will still be very challenging, but we are making sure we have all the resources, skills and product innovations to maximise opportunities and be ready to meet any upturn in demand, with print solutions of the highest quality, delivered on time and to budget,” said MD Michael Green.
