‘Hobs Reprographics Incorporating Print Room’

Alok Sharma, Member of Parliament for Reading West, today officially opened ‘Hobs Reprographics Incorporating Print Room,’ at Portman Road in Reading. Hobs Reprographics – the largest independent printing company in Europe – acquired The Print Room in July 2011 and the opening marks completion of the integration between the two companies. Since the acquisition, Hobs has made considerable investment in new printing, finishing equipment and IT infrastructure, which has enabled the Reading branch to introduce many new products and services to the local client base.

The largest market sector served by Hobs is Architecture, Engineering and Construction, although a large spectrum of other industries are also covered, across Berkshire and neighbouring counties. Alok Sharma said: “I was pleased to officially open Hobs Reprographics Incorporating Print Room which is an example of a thriving and expanding business, investing in Reading, which will have a positive effect on the local economy. During my visit I was impressed by the enthusiasm of the members of staff, who know how important their role is in contributing towards a successful business.”

Coming Soon

The Construction Industry made us famous!

When we started all those years ago, a lot of our work was producing plans for architects and construction companies. A rare skill then, but something we’ve kept up with, introducing new technologies one after another to stay ahead. Providing the best service to people in the construction industry is still at the core of our business. That means a few more tasks these days, of course.

Fast, bespoke printing on demand.

Our digital printing capability means short runs, superfast and economically. We can produce totally bespoke, personalised documents including collation, hole punching, binding and lamination.

We turn round complex tenders with bound, complex, personalised documents within 24 hours. We send out direct mail, corporate gifts and presentations too.

We produce estate agent particulars including complex full colour brochures – no need to choose a long print run as we can provide extra copies practically on demand.

We can digitise floorplans or elevations from the original drawings and produce full colour plans in minutes up to A0 size..

Go on – Make an Exhibition of Yourself

Creating a stunning marketing suite? Presenting at an exhibition? Want something to stand out in an estate agent’s office? Or simply a pop-up banner. Our Display division can help.

We Deliver to Site too!

We have delivery vans out every day across the Thames Valley. So if you need it delivered straight to site, to someone else involved in the project or to an estate agent or buyer, we can do that too – usually same day.
