Update 24th October 2022
To reduce overheads and remain competitive, we have agreed to share premises with Acorn Press. They have spare space in their warehouse, and we jumped at the chance to share with them. They have been Clients of ours since we started trading in 2000 and it’s an arrangement that benefits both parties. Both Companies remain entirely separate, and Clients should not notice any difference in service or personnel.
Update 19th May 2022
Amid a challenging economy, we have taken the decision to sell our existing premises. It has become obvious that these are far too large for our present needs and the future stability of APD would be better served without the overheads associated with such a large warehouse. We are currently exploring our options locally and plan to move to smaller premises by the end of 2022. This will substantially reduce our overheads and ensure that APD is fighting fit for many years to come!
As soon as a move has been finalised, all Clients and Suppliers will be advised as early as possible. In the meantime, please feel free to contact Dave, Graham or Viv if you need any further information.
Do you need professional mailing services that match your specific Direct Mail needs? APD Ltd is a Mailing House based in Swindon, Wiltshire. We offer data cleaning and de-duplication, letter and label laser-print, address ink-jetting, envelope supply and overprint, poly-wrapping (Oxo-degradable or compostable) as well as hand or machine fulfilment.
We opened our first office in a small Unit on the Westmead Industrial Estate, West Swindon in the year 2000. We quickly gained a reputation for our efficient, no-nonsense Direct Mail service and consequently out-grew these premises. So we moved to a new Unit in Callenders - again in West Swindon. From this base, we steadily grew our Client portfolio and enhanced our reputation for offering an efficient, thorough and professional Mailing House service to small and medium sized businesses in Wiltshire, Berkshire, Gloucestershire and beyond. Our low set-up fees and free advice made us an ideal choice for small to medium-sized mailers. Nowadays, we'll handle anything from 500 high impact mailers to 50,000 charity mail-shots.
In 2008 we moved to premises on Clearwater Business Park. Based in our heartland of West Swindon, just off Junction 16 of the M4, these premises provided us with the ideal base to expand our Direct Mail services along the M4 corridor.
In October 2022, we moved into new offices alongside Acorn Press on Westmead Industrial Estate, Swindon. This move benefitted both parties - using spare space available at the existing Acorn site and maintaining our strong links with one of the South West's leading commercial Printers. We are now proud to count multi-national Companies in Reading, Marlow, Oxford, Bristol and London, alongside almost every commercial printer in Swindon, among our valued Clients.
If you need advice on your first mailer or a quote to compare with your existing Mailing House, if you think your fulfilment services need freshening up or you need an idea of costs for your forthcoming marketing budget, then please give us a call or drop us an email. We'd very much like to help.
We're proud to be involved with the annual Season Ticket Campaigns for these Football Clubs: Swindon Town FC, Brighton & Hove Albion FC, Southampton FC, Bristol Rovers FC and Fulham FC.
