Northside Graphics, an online digital printing platform based in Northern Ireland, has secured private equity backing for its growth plans. The company has received investment from Bestport Private Equity, which will drive its growth strategy in the UK and Ireland via both strategic acquisitions and organic growth.
The company was founded in 1988 and was taken over by Neil and Gary White. Since then, the owners, alongside Managing Director Richard Campbell, have led a transformation of the business as it pivoted towards digital printing. The firm has grown to a 70-strong business providing a diversified, customisable product portfolio and was awarded Printweek’s UK “Company of the Year” award for 2023.
Bestport Managing Partner James Stoddart commented: "The demanding nature of the B2B market means dynamic businesses like Northside are well positioned to scale. Neil and Gary have built a fantastic business that puts the customer at the forefront of all they do.”
"We're delighted to partner with the Northside team as they continue their impressive run of growth and expand the business across the UK and Ireland."
Northside Graphics Managing Director Richard Campbell said: "Our business has achieved exceptional growth in recent years. Bestport’s investment means we can continue to invest and offer our customers a wider range of innovative products.”
As well as seeing fresh investment for the firm’s acquisitive and organic expansion plans, the company’s next stage of growth will see Astron Chief Executive David Mitchell assume the role of Chairman of the Board at Northside.
Mitchell brings significant experience within the sector, having been chairman at M2 digital and Euro Druck Services, as well as Dublin pharma services firm Perigord. He also serves as a board director for healthcare packaging company RDI.
