Hambleside Limited has been providing support & materials to the West African print market for the last 40 years. We are UK based with an office in Lagos, Nigeria & make regular trips to West Africa to support our customer base.
We are happy to deal with any print related enquiry from an urgent breakdown spare part to a new web press & specialise in the logistics of shipping these items in the most suitable manner.
If you are looking for new or used equipment we can guide your purchasing decisions to locate the correct equipment for your requirements & then support the purchase, or even existing equipment, with training & installation with overseas or local technicians where appropriate.
We supply many grades of paper to the marketplace & can act as your route to the paper mills for purchasing prime makings or can supply stock lots as needed.
Our turnkey solution to upgrade or replace your existing pre-press can include local installation & training or we can supply the current state-of-the-art equipment only if you are already conversant with CTP.
Current digital press models we support, & have already supplied to West Africa, are available to view through our Lagos office & can offer a simple way to get into this incredibly fast growing market at an early stage.
We look forward to making your acquaintance & in handling your print industry related requirements. Please feel free to contact us however best suits, via the enquiry function on this website, email, phone, Facebook or directly through our Lagos office.
