Graphic continues to prosper at 50

12 July 2018
Graphic was formed on 21st June 1968 by Rex Rozario OBE. Rex worked with Dr Paul Eisler, the inventor of the Printed Circuit Board, at Technograph-Telegraph in the 1950’s. In 1972 Rex moved the factory to Crediton and operated from a number of buildings on the Lords Meadow Industrial Estate.
 
In 1993 Graphic moved into a 50,000 sq ft. purpose built facility.  In 2001 the company completed a 10,000 sq ft. extension to the factory which was opened by HRH the Princess Royal.  Over the years Graphic has amassed many national and international quality approvals for its products and has achieved many accolades including Investors in People, Business Excellence awards and many customer performance awards year on year. In 1999 Graphic became the first PCB Company to achieve the environmental ISO14001 standard.
 
In 2007 Graphic set up a new manufacturing venture with Somacis in China (Dongguan Somacis Graphic PCB Company) based on demanding technologies, reliability and high performance; this venture has achieved exceptional growth.
 
A further 18,000 sq ft. extension to the Crediton facility was added in 2017, to increase the manufacturing capacity by 20% to meet increased demand. 
 
70% of the workforce has been with the company for over 10 years, with the Directors averaging over 35 years; collectively with the workforce have a wealth of knowledge and experience to benefit all our customers.
 
In 2016 Graphic Plc was acquired by the Fine PCB Group and continues to go from strength to strength, under the leadership of its original Directors.

Commenting on this milestone, David Pike, CEO commented, “We are driven by an entrepreneurial spirit within a great team of employees, which has enabled us to constantly push new boundaries and enter new markets to better support our customers.  We want to sincerely thank our customers, suppliers and staff for the trust they have placed in Graphic Plc over the last 50 years of business”
 
Here’s to the next 50 years.
