History & accolades

1971

Originally called Offset Productions and Technical Services, Hugh Jarvis and his father Maurice launched the business. Operating from an old waterworks at East Farleigh, Maidstone.

1980

In 1991 the business experienced dynamic expansion, moving to a far larger, modern freehold premises in Aylesford, Kent.  The company name was changed to Offset Productions Limited. As a result of the growth in the seventies the business moved to a significantly larger, modern freehold premises in Aylesford, Kent.

1991

In 1991 the freehold of an adjacent building was acquired to increase the production, warehousing and office area. Further investment in an even wider range of converting equipment enabled the company to diversify into the production of high quality greetings cards and the short-run sector of the litho-laminated market.

2007

In 2007 Offset Packaging combined forces with Cavendish Packaging to form Offset Packaging. A multi-million pound investment programme was implemented to support this new business, which became fully operational in early 2008.

2016

In 2016 Offset Packaging and Offset Productions merged to form Offset Print & Packaging Ltd, resulting in significantly high levels of service, quality and experience in everything that is achieved.

"To ensure the highest quality in printed packaging there can be no compromise. From people to machinery to systems - only the best will do."
