Design and print agency HPM Group is celebrating after winning a hat-trick of football contracts worth £400,000.
HPM Group, based on Aycliffe Business Park, has won a renewed deal to print the matchday programmes for Premier League clubs Sunderland and Liverpool, as well as designing and printing the matchday publication for Championship club Middlesbrough.
The £5m turnover a year firm, which employs 50 people, has invested heavily in the last year splashing out £500,000 on a Perfect Binding machine, which has led to a surge in work.
Managing director Richard Mortimer said: “It’s fantastic news that we’ve renewed our contracts with Sunderland and Middlesbrough, two football clubs we’ve had a long association with.
“Football is an important part of life in this area and football programmes are still a vital part of the matchday experience for supporters going to games, which is why we’re passionate about design as well as print.”
