In 1867 Edward Thompson opened a stationery shop in Sunderland with a small printing operation in a back room. At the end of the first World War John Louis Cronin, the great nephew of Edward Thompson, took over the shop and was followed in the 1950s by his son Frank.
Frank Cronin took the business through a rapid period of expansion, initially targeting the Bingo industry and then diversifying into paper manufacture and promotional print. Today the company operates on four sites in Sunderland and employees over 500 people.
