Shumani Mills Communications (SMC), is regarded as one of the most reputable and innovative lithographic printers.
Focusing and specialising on high quality commercial and book printing allows us to do the simple things well.
Therefore, we have transformed our group to the simple principle of:

= PERPETUAL INNOVATION
= CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

Our company has been built up over many years with you the customer in mind, ensuring that you receive a
quality product, produced on high-tech equipment, with your delivery expectations our priority.

The best technology and equipment mean nothing without having the right people. Led by a hands-on management team, SMC cultivates people who are innovative, empowering them to bring new ideas to our working environment. This provides us all with a greater sense of purpose and job satisfaction.

We continually strive for a green facility, using the most eco-friendly solutions and we constantly keep up-to-date with, and conform to, any new developments in green-friendly printing. We have already converted our presses to alcohol free printing – with our entire plant using vegetable based inks and starch based spray powders. We conserve resources in all our production processes and minimise paper and ink wastage (through our ink station system). We have reduced our water consumption in plate making and use only Reverse Osmosis Water on our presses and use FSC approved and recycled paper wherever possible. In addition, we run LED lighting throughout our factory.
