Established after the war in 1921, Barnard and Westwood gained a Royal Warrant for Printing and Bookbinding to Her Majesty The Queen in 1985 and were awarded another in 2012 for Printing by The Prince of Wales.
With the company approaching their centenary it felt like the perfect time to implement changes to ensure every single individual involved sees the benefit of their efforts. In 2015, Barnard & Westwood went from being a historic family-run company to a 100% employee-owned business.

“There is definitely an added buzz at work now. We are a relatively small workforce so we have always had good communications, but the change to Employee Ownership has made everyone just that bit more aware of what we are doing.” – Linda Austin, Trustee & Partner www.barnardandwestwood.com
