About us

Newton Press is a family run business, established in 1963 by Syd Howarth. Since then the business has grown with the new town of Newton Aycliffe and expanded its services to cover the needs of local people and businesses on the Business Park.

Syd’s three sons now run the business each with individual expertise: Paul runs the Advertising, Design and Pre-press Departments. Stuart is in charge of Sales, Purchasing and Administration and Christopher directs workflow and Quality Control. Syd keeps in touch by acting as Honorary Editor for “Newton News“.

The company specialises in General and Commercial Printing, offering a comprehensive range of products and services including wide format printing, rubber stamp manufacture, screen printing, magazine and book production. Newton Press publish and print Newton Aycliffe’s own local weekly community newspaper “The Newton News” which claims to be the first “FREE” newspaper in the UK. Customers come first and we strive to meet their requirements and to keep our prices very competitive. Our representatives are available to call and advise on any printing enquiries.

We are constantly upgrading, expanding and adding new machinery and improving technology. Our latest acquisitions incude a colour digital printing facility for high quality colour with exceptionally quick turnarounds at reasonable prices and a Karat 74 environmentally friendly machine. Newton Press has also achieved the ISO14001 quality mark and is working with the FSC (Forestry Service Commission) which will enable Newton Press to be completely environmentally friendly.
