Based in Nottingham, the team operates on a national scale and has many household names on its client books. With a method that gives the company, and the client, incredible control on quality and turnaround times, it’s no wonder that many businesses have made use of their services. The success of MRP comes down to a number of factors, mainly the team’s ability to provide a complete, fully managed end to end print and finishing solution for their clients. This means that all the way through, from concept through CAD design to completion, there is the ability to make tweaks and changes, adjusting to suit exactly what is required. As a small business with big ideas, it is easy for clients to be engaged with every stage of the process, guided by the wisdom of the experienced workforce at MRP. The nature of MRP’s approach means that the team has been able to take on all manner of work in a variety of areas. The core products produced include all types of cartons, product sleeves, display packaging (POS), blister packs and a wide range of self-adhesive labels, with general commercial print services such as brochures, leaflets, greetings cards and business stationery also on offer to those who need it. Serving clients from across the board, in industries like toys and games, beauty, pharmaceuticals, vaping and retail, there is always plenty of work to be done, to the highest of standards.

Similarly, old technologies have been replaced, with an aging automobile supplanted by a state-of- the-art all-electric Tesla car. This will assist with deliveries on a local level. Currently MRP’s hardworking team is exploring the possibilities of a new reprographic system and streamlining the fulfilment process.
