Strong international growth earns printer place in exporting league table

February 14, 2020

A specialist printing firm that supplies government documents to countries as far apart as Mongolia, Ghana and Qatar has been named as one of the UK’s fastest-growing exporters.

Integrity Print, based in Midsomer Norton, has achieved annual international sales growth of 67% over the past two years – a record that has earned it 55th place in the annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league table. 

Some £5.2m of its £57.1m turnover came from overseas business at the 103-year-old firm. 

The table, which is published this weekend, ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales.

Integrity Print, which employs nearly 400 people and operates more than 50 presses on its 16-acre site on Midsomer Norton’s Westfield Trading Estate, appears in the table alongside well-known British brands such as Mountain Warehouse, which opened 21 shops abroad last year, BrewDog, which was valued at £1bn in 2017 and now has nearly 100 bars worldwide; and Charlotte Tilbury Beauty, the London-based cosmetics and skincare brand, which ships to 76 markets.

It is one of 11 South West companies in the table which, between them, have grown their international sales by an average of 51% a year over the past two years to a total of £703m. Together they employ more than 6,000 people.  

The region’s top-ranked company – at number 30 – is Bristol-based TV production firm Plimsoll Productions .30), which is behind series such as Hostile Planet, hosted by Bear Grylls.

The league table programme is sponsored by HSBC, DHL Express and Oracle NetSuite, and compiled Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.

HSBC UK head of commercial banking Amanda Murphy said: “The Sunday Times International Track 200 shows the strength, ambition and resilience of companies across the UK and we are delighted to be sponsoring again this year.”
