Hague joins forces with SR Print Management following acquisition

(L-R) Simon Hayward and Nathan Wain, directors at Hague and Steve Rushton, SRPM managing director and founder.

Hague, a print and IT solution provider based in West Yorkshire, has acquired SR Print Management (SRPM).

Based in Hednesford, Staffordshire, SR Print Management was formed by Steve Rushton in 2000 after he spent fifteen years in various roles within the print industry. The £2 million business, which employs 7 staff, has been growing steadily since its creation. Procuring litho, digital, screen and promotional print on behalf of its clients, SRPM also specialises in storage, pick, pack and distribution throughout the UK and worldwide.

It is Hague’s first acquisition to date and it follows on from a successful year, which saw them expand their presence in Africa, and more recently set-up a new company in Sydney, Australia. The company which has UK offices in West Yorkshire, Manchester and Cardiff, specialises in security print, labels and IT solutions with export customers in over 50 countries.

Nathan Wain, director at Hague said: “We are very pleased to welcome SRPM’s team to the Hague family. They are highly experienced, with a wealth of industry knowledge. SRPM’s geographical position fits well with Hague’s existing offices and their offering and customer base will complement our growing presence in the UK and global markets.”

Steve Rushton, SRPM managing director and founder added: “SR’s success over the years is down to the loyalty of its client base, which is a testimony to the ‘can-do’ attitude and professionalism of its staff and the good relationships it has with its suppliers. We are excited to join the Hague Group.  It will give our customers access to new sources of supply and products not previously offered, potential savings and an extended industry knowledge.”

SR will keep its Staffordshire base and will continue to trade as SRPM Limited.
