Would you like to join Northern Ireland's biggest printing company?

GPS invests heavily in people, the company is committed to training, enabling employees to get the most out of their technological investments in order to meet GPS's exacting standards.  Environmental consciousness is inherent in the company's culture and is not merely an afterthought.  This is evident through the GPS's many accreditations and a long list of awards.
