Te modern day Communisis plc came
into being when John Mansfeld plc acquired the
long-established and iconic Leeds printing frm
Waddingtons, which had included the world famous
Monopoly board game in its wide-ranging product
portfolio, and Rexam’s printing division in 2000.
Te new group decided to concentrate on the
four core activities of e-marketing, direct marketing,
security products and transactional document services.
Waddingtons had its origins in Te Electric
Press in Leeds as far back as 1897, light years away
from today’s diverse marketing services group
delivering world class marketing solutions to an
impressive list of blue chip customers.
