Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
Bradley Group was founded last year as a vehicle to expand Quinnstheprinters.com into a group of manufacturing and technology companies. Quinnstheprinters.com aims to connect thousands of print and design companies to millions of customers. Quinnsdevelopment is another aspect of the group, it allows our customers to sell online with a fully integrated ‘Job Management System’ and workflow that means all they have to concentrate on is sales and marketing. Now we can add Mannin Print to this mix, the largest commercial printers in the Isle of Man.
How are you different?
We are the largest seller of print online in Ireland with 100% of all of our orders orignating from our website. We have 95% pre-press and artwork handling automation from customer upload to hitting the press. We aim for the first time the print having human interaction to be when the printing operator takes the sheets off the back of the press. We are a technology business that does print rather than the other way round. We currently employ more software developers than we do printers.
