Andy Bethel & Thomas Mackrill

We have been celebrating excellent first year financial results recently.

Our initial 12 month turnover was an unprecedented £350k, with a healthy profit margin. From a standing start in April 2016, we’re proud to have  built a solid customer base from Barnsley and the wider Yorkshire area.

Operating from the Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre (BBIC), CSP Systems is the culmination of a collective 75 years in the print, copy and scan solution industry. Our two directors, Andy Bethel and Thomas Mackrill made the decision to locate the business in Barnsley with the view that the town as central to the Yorkshire region. Experienced service engineer, Dean Middleton joined the team to make us one of the most skilled and knowledgeable in the area.

Operating almost exclusively in the South and West Yorkshire area, we are proud of our local credentials and will continue to focus on the region. Doing so has allowed us to establish unrivalled response times of typically less than 2 hours. Among our customers are Sheffield legal practice Acclaimed Family Law, fast growing Active Response Security Services and the business behind the Jump Inc phenomenon, Futures Leisure.

We are already forecasting further growth for the next 12 months, with plans to take turnover to £400k and increase the size of the team. Director Andy Bethel said: “We couldn’t have anticipated such an outstanding first year of trading when we started out last April. We based the business in Barnsley because of the town’s friendly business community, excellent support services for start ups and active Chamber of Commerce. It proved to be the right decision. We’re looking forward to giving something back in the next year by creating new jobs.

“It’s an exciting time for CSP Systems and we’re all looking forward to the coming year. We have a partnership with DEVELOP which allows up to supply world class hardware into Yorkshire businesses. Teamed with bespoke service technology created by Dean and unrivalled response times, we’re in a position to offer a real alternative to run of the mill print and copy suppliers.”
