Meet Ian Robinson
Welcome to our website which shows the print and design service that R & K Robinson – based in Stourport on Severn in Worcestershire – offer to our clients both locally in Kidderminster and Bewdley and throughout the UK. I am your main day to day contact here at R & K Robinson and look after your valued print order from start to finish. I can help, advise and create artwork for a wide range of printed stationery enquiries from a simple business card to a multi-page company brochure. I take pride in doing the best job I can for our customers and never forget you have a choice in where you place your print order.
Outside of work, I am a keen runner having completed 7 marathons and 3 ultramarathons to date. I am currently training for my next ultramarathon in April 2020 – a 50-mile race on the South Downs Way. I also enjoy football, music and spending time with my wife Karen, daughter Lexie and other family and friends. I have over 20 years experience within the printing industry and would be delighted to discuss your next printed stationery enquiry with you and hopefully show you how R & K Robinson can help with your print buying.
Meet Richard Robinson
When I joined my first printing company, The Formprint Group, in 1978 most orders in the print trade were produced in house by the printer and very little work was outsourced. Formprint was a manufacturing company based in Halesowen in the West Midlands and their strength was in short-run print with extremely competitive prices but it became obvious to me that the company struggled to compete on larger print runs. I approached my boss and got his agreement to introduce a new print management approach to outsource larger print jobs to trade suppliers and service more customers. It was very successful and sales quickly increased the annual company turnover to £4 million.
I became Managing Director of Formprint for nearly a decade and was responsible for establishing several blue chip accounts and a large sales team until leaving to set up R & K Robinson in 1995 along with my son, Ian, who was already working in the print trade. Away from work, I am happily married to my wife Kay and have two other children Vicki and Craig. I attend the gym on a regular basis and I am a long-suffering fan of Birmingham City FC. As well as football, I enjoy most sports, particularly cricket. I have over 40 years experience in the print industry so if I can help in any way with your next print enquiry please get in touch. Thanks for visiting our website.
