Founded in 1983 by John Heaford, JM Heaford Ltd began life as a manufacturer of a range of gravure proofing processes.

Even in our early years we were known for our flexible, customer-focussed approach; this led to us expanding our offering, including the addition of new and innovative technology such as the very first machines for mounting flexographic plates using microdot technology.


Our willingness to listen to our customers while keeping our machinery up-to-date in line with the latest cutting edge techniques and processes, means we rapidly grew to become a world leader in the supply of pre-press equipment with an unrivalled skills base across flexographic and gravure printing fields.


Such is our expertise and standing in our field we have won numerous awards including a Gold Technical Innovation Award that went to our Narrow Web FTS Mounter at the European Flexographic Industry Association’s 2013 Print Awards.


Finding the right solutions for our customers is integral to our business – such is the vast knowledge and experience of our designers and engineers, we are able to manufacture machines of unrivalled accuracy and reliability. Through a winning combination of simple design and precision engineering our equipment provides long-lasting consistency and functionality.


In our fourth decade of operations, we remain strongly committed to developing our services to meet the ever changing demands of our customers in the printing industry. That’s why we offer an unparalleled range of thoughtfully-designed machines which are built to last for many years to come.
