Print Solutions

Bluetree Group, parent company of Route 1 Print, instantprint and Bluetree Medical has acquired South Yorkshire luxury books specialist Kingsbury Press.

The acquisition sees Bluetree incorporating Kingsbury Press alongside the existing brands. Bluetree will take over the Doncaster based, 60,000 square foot site and retain the existing team with plans to continue driving the luxury books and publishing work.

The site comes with a B2 Heidelberg Speedmaster XL75, a B1 Heidelberg Speedmaster CX102 and a host of finishing equipment capable of producing luxury brochures and booklets for a selection of high end clients across the UK and the US.

Bluetree Group intends to use the deal to bolster its existing product range across the Route 1 Print and instantprint brands and has long term plans to expand the existing booklet options and add new finishing types not currently available within the existing range.

Co-CEO Adam Carnell said, ‘This is a huge day for Bluetree Group. Not only are we able to offer a wider booklet and brochure offering than ever before to our clients, our businesses coming together creates a wealth of opportunities in the business for our teams to grow and learn to utilise new technologies.

‘We are committed to continuing to drive Kingsbury Press forward and working with its existing clients whilst opening the offering up to our reseller audience.’

He added, ‘The team at Kingsbury has created an incredible business dedicated to ‘The Art of Print’. The company will add a wealth of knowledge and experience to our business and we are delighted to invite all 37 colleagues to the Bluetree family.’

The acquisition brings Bluetree close to a 700 strong team across its print and medical divisions.
