We are a Birmingham based, family run business established for almost 70 years. At Owen’s the traditional values of quality, service and reliability run along-side cutting edge technology. Our great grandfather Harry Owen was born in 1862. He worked and served his time at Midland Printing Company from 1885. His son Horace William Owen, (known as Bill) was born in 1897 and followed his father into the Print trade. He founded the present company in 1948 with his wife Nancy, in a small premises on the Stratford Road in Sparkbrook, Birmingham.
Stanley Owen started working for his father after leaving school in 1948 where he served his time as a compositor and machine operator. Stan’s three sons Antony, Ian and Peter all joined the company from school in the 1970’s/80’s, as did Richard, the current MD, in the 1990’s.
A new purpose built factory was built in 1981 from where we still operate. Although Bill would hardly recognise many of today’s technological developments, he would certainly approve of our attention to detail and our determination to always put the customer first. Customer satisfaction has always been one of our main aims.
