With new branding and differentiating metallic dry inks in place, Janet is looking to the future. She plans to retire in the next decade, and to pass the business along to her son, Ben Davies, who is currently Orchard’s
production manager. The goal is to leave him with an even larger Orchard legacy than today’s company.
The plan she is developing with her consultants seeks to grow the firm by
about 30% in the next three years, to an annual turnover of £1 million. They will accomplish it by capturing more leads coming through the door, upselling and cross-selling to current customers, running open houses to showcase Orchard’s full capabilities, continuing to innovate and possibly opening satellite locations in nearby towns.
Orchard is banking on digital specialty dry inks, silver, gold and clear, as a part of that plan—and that promises a sparkling future
