A ROSS-on-Wye family business has announced its acquisition of a nearby printing company on the outskirts of Chepstow.

Phil and Alison Clarke, of Calendar Lady Promotions, are the new owners of Hanley Court Printers at Tidenham.

The couple have an established track record in the printing industry with their calendar and promotional gift business which was started 17 years ago by Phil’s Mum Kathy Clay.

Calendar Lady Promotions handled more than one million personalised calendars for businesses all over the world last year and was recognised as the UK’s biggest independent calendar supplier.

“We are absolutely delighted with our latest acquisition of Hanley Court Printers,” said Phil.

“It fits in perfectly with our existing business operation, has great potential, and will ensure even more future employment opportunities for local people as we grow.”

“We have already invested heavily in new print technology in order to provide a faster and more efficient service to the local business community.”
