News: Rebranding for Rotherham print group


Rotherham print group, Horner Brothers, which was bought by the Paragon Group in 2013, has rebranded as Paragon Group UK.

Horner Brothers was established in 1982 by local brothers Trevor and Dennis Horner who started the business in a converted chapel in Harley. Since that time the business has evolved through a management buy-out in 2006 and acquisition by the Paragon Group in 2013 in a pre-pack administration deal.

Operating from two units at Templeborough with around 85 staff on site, the business counts Prudential, HSBC, BT, Yorkshire Water and BOC amongst its blue chip customer base.


Horners has now changed its trading name to Paragon as part of the unification of Paragon Group activities in the UK. The legal entity, head office and registered number will all remain the same. The move comes as part of a wider strategy to align the Paragon businesses in the UK that includes 24 Service Point branches, a London presence, a site in Sunderland and Horner Brothers under the Paragon brand.

Paragon Group UK Ltd is a subsidiary of Paragon Group Ltd, a global operation turning over more than €400m, with manufacturing presence in 12 countries and trading relationships in more than 40.

Judith Fox, formally MD of Horner Brothers now becomes UK Business Services Director for Paragon UK. She said: "The first step will be for the UK to operate under a unified brand - Paragon Group UK, in order to simplify our message and to provide all of our customers with access to the full suite of products and services that better fit the needs of our customers in today’s ever changing business environment.

"The people that our customers deal with will remain the same and the high levels of service that our customers are used to will continue to be delivered, just under a different name. We are very proud of our legacy here in Rotherham and the South Yorkshire area this will be strengthened now by the potential to recruit more local talent to our Rotherham premises as we continue to grow."

Paragon UK announced last year an investment of over £3m in new equipment with the purchase of several new wide format printers and 41 Xerox small format printers throughout the UK.
