Ours is an unconventional business success story. By doing things differently and better for over 25 years, we have grown from small beginnings into one of the largest publishers and printers in South Africa. Our roots are deeply embedded in the country, and our heritage directly and indirectly correlates with that of many of South Africa’s original printing giants. We remain the maverick company of our early days, continuing to push the boundaries and display a free spirited flair for print.
Founded in 1980 by entrepreneurs Terry Moolman and Noel Coburn, we are a major participant in the South African print media industry. We are involved in publishing a number of regional community newspapers, The Citizen daily newspaper and 12 major magazines, as well as commercial printing, packaging, stationery manufacture and book printing.
Caxton and CTP Publishers and Printers Limited is recognised as one of the largest publishers and printers of books, magazines, newspapers and commercial print in South Africa. We are involved in various fields of publishing and printing i.e. newspapers, magazines, commercial print, book printing, stationery, packaging and labels, as well as manufacturing ink for web presses. Approximately 5 500 people are employed by the group.
We are driven by the quest for excellence across all disciplines of printing and publishing. Working with a team of committed, well trained and empowered employees we aim to provide products of outstanding quality to our clients and superior returns to our shareholders, whilst contributing to the growth of a democratic and prosperous South Africa.
