A company with a long history

June 29, 2011

Nuffield Press  has been put into administration.
Nuffield Press
Nuffield Press began printing the Morris Owner in 1925 from the original Morris Motors factory in Cowley.  They were originally called the Morris Oxford Press and renamed as Nuffield Press in 1942.
Nuffield Press
They began printing Morris and MG periodicals from the original Morris Factory in Cowley – a building that looks as if it has been converted to housing.
Nuffield Press
Nuffield Press are now located in Abingdon down the bottom of what is Nuffield Way,  and part of the Nuffield Centrum, and adjacent to what was once the MG Works.

Since the 80’s Nuffield Press has diversified away from the Motor Industry into magazines, catalogues, brochures and college prospectuses.  They are a good company with a solid reputation and plenty of history – according to comments in the trade journal Print Week , but times are tough for printers

    It is sad that the last business bearing the great name of William Morris has gone into administration.

    I agree Dave. I guess it’s the way of the world now because of e-media and open-source publications. Thoughts are with those who have lost their jobs.
