Harlow Printing Limited, which was established in the town more than 70 years ago, has spoken of its commitment to recognising the achievements of others in the community as it lends its support to the Gazette’s annual awards.

The business first opened its doors in 1947 and in that time has grown to become a national supplier and distributor of print to both the private and public industry sectors.

Using the latest printing technology, it provides the highest quality print solutions and also provides bespoke products with its dedicated design studio.
