Harlow Printing Limited was registered as a limited company in 1947. We currently utilise two production factories in Maxwell Street, South Shields and, a 35,000 sq ft warehouse and distribution centre, also in South Shields.

We utilise the latest technology with a fully integrated MIS managing every aspect of our business from pricing to manufacture from stock management to delivery. Because we utilise an integrated MIS we are able to provide KPI reports on every aspect of our performance.

We also host our own internet trading application E4print, this system provides 24/7 access for all customers enabling them to check deliveries, stocks, progress, proofs, delivery history and form design managing variable data.

We currently supply in excess of £7.5m to the NHS throughout the UK with partial or exclusive agreements with many of the Collaborative Purchasing hubs. Working in partnership with many Trusts we have significantly reduced expenditure and improved service.

We are certified to ISO 9001 Quality Standard and ISO 14001 Environmental Standard.

We are committed to offering our customers the highest possible standards of service

We recognise that our operations have the potential to affect the environment. Harlow Printing meets all legal and regulatory requirements. Indeed, we regard it as critically important that we continuously improve all aspects of our environmental performance. Therefore we ensure that while satisfying the demanding requirements of our clients, our goods, services and internal housekeeping comply with environmental legislation and best practice.

In partnership with County Durham Environmental Trust (CDENT) and Groundwork South Tyneside and Newcastle we have designed and developed a wildlife garden at our new warehouse and distribution centre. The garden is a biodiversity project providing a natural habitat for endangered flora and fauna. Local schools have been involved in the planting of many hundreds of shrubs and trees over the last several months. The garden is now available as a curriculum resource for local schools providing opportunities for the practical application and appreciation of habitat, environment and indigenous species. We have been the recipient of many awards for environmental good practice including:

Evening Chronicle Environmental business of the year award
STEP awards for environmental good practice
South Tyneside Borough Council Gold award for environmental good practice
