Printing Factories

Caxton Local Media is the largest printer of newspapers in South Africa and has 10 strategically located cold-set factories.

Our Johannesburg factory based in Industria is the largest of its kind in South Africa and the nerve centre where over a 100 different publications with a combined production quantity in excess of 50 million copies per month are printed. This amounts to a staggering 14 billion page impressions per annum and requires over 45 000 tons of paper.

Commercial retailers such as Game, Foodlover’s Market, Pick n Pay and OK Foods entrust their printing to Caxton. Other work includes various national newspapers and between 50-80 million newspaper inserts per month.

The printing works is geared to handle the most demanding production schedules. In addition to the Industria operations, Caxton also owns nine smaller printing presses in Cape Town, Nelspruit, Middelburg, Polokwane, Rustenburg, Newcastle, Pinetown, Empangeni and Pietermaritzburg. These plants are able to produce long-run, large-format retail insert products printed on 48,8gsm newsprint or 70gsm bond for insertion into national, regional and community newspapers or delivery to stores.

The national commercial printing infrastructure (print-plant location) makes it possible to turn work around on tight schedules. An investment in new portal software has improved client satisfaction as material can now be viewed from any office or even the client’s couch at home while the expert team in Johannesburg can talk directly to a computer-to-plate machine in the pre-press department in each print plant.

As a leading printer and publishers in the country, clients can have the benefit of reduced transport costs when they not only print commercial pamphlets with Caxton but also insert it in the preferred publication as these pamphlets will already be on site.

In the last two years Caxton printers has invested in the latest modern technology and can offer clients interesting and enticing printing solutions that would set them apart from competitors.
