Rollem plays it’s cards right
This developer of bespoke finishing devices is marking 90 years of manufacturing this year.
About half of our Best of British subjects and future candidates have surprisingly long histories. They’ve survived by adapting to the huge changes in technologies, social and economic conditions over the years and still manage to present relevant products to the market. Often they’re successful exporters too. Rollem certainly ticks these boxes. The end of this year marks its 90th birthday and today’s products remain on the (literal) cutting edge, integrating finishing with digital and analogue presses. Turnover is currently £3m, with 80% of work exported.
Its machines can be configured and customised to finish products including playing and trading cards, business cards, photobooks, mailings, shelf edge labels, postcards, CD inlays and raised print. Customers include international brands such as Bluetree Design & Print, Hasbro, Panini, Pokemon and Xerox.
