A Caistor company is celebrating 40 years of business this month.
Systematic Print Management was started by Nick Robey in 1975, who found a niche in selling computer print and consumables to businesses.
The product range was narrow but in demand, and Systematic added value through linking customer’s needs to manufacturers, the very foundation of their print management offer today.
Indeed, Systematic’s story is about the growth and diversification of a family business, across a period of unprecedented change in technology.
And today, with son Chris Robey at the helm as managing director, the team are a trusted pair of hands for any print project.
“I would like to thank our customers for their loyalty and support, and my colleagues for their hard work and dedication,” said Chris
“Our blend of knowledge, experience and innovation is strong, and we look forward to the future with excitement.”
During these 40 trading years, Systematic were the first print management business to achieve accreditation to the quality standard ISO 9001 in 1992 and they were granted a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty the Queen in 2008.
Closer to home, they won the Lincolnshire & Rutland Winning Business Award in 2004 and the Heart of the Community Award in 2013.
The business embarks on this new era with the accolade of the UK’s Print Management Company of the Year 2014 under their belts.
This was awarded by the authority on print, the Independent Print Industry Association.
And the team is involving their loyal client base in their 40th anniversary celebrations.
One particularly colourful legacy to this milestone takes the form of 4,000 daffodils, which Systematic gave to their contacts in the autumn.
The project honoured Nick Robey, their founder, who is a daffodil enthusiast.
Daffodils are also said to be a lucky emblem of future prosperity, which the team can take forward into their decades of trading ahead.
