Our story so far...

Mailcoms is born
Mailcoms started out from a converted garage at the family home in Cannock, Staffordshire. Offering low running cost alternative franking machines, without the need for high pressure salespeople and with a personal level of service that the industry was lacking.
Royal Mail Authorised Maintainers
Mailcoms were awarded the accolade of Royal Mail™ Authorised Independent Inspector & Maintainers of postal franking machines. This is an accreditation only shared with a handful of other companies across the UK.
Moving Premises
Following humble beginnings in the family home Mailcoms made the big step into acquiring purpose built premises at an investment of over £500,000. The new building also included a purpose built ink cartridge re-manufacturing centre to further enhance ink cartridge production.
Royal Mail Approved Ink
Mailcoms were one of only two companies in the UK to have their own brand of franking inks approved by the Royal Mail. Mailcoms was also the first company in the UK to offer refilling/recycling of franking machine ink cartridges.
Fast Printed Packaging
Mailcoms moved into the e-commerce packaging market in 2021 following a shift in direction of the franking machine industry from sending letters to sending parcels. In addition, there seemed a particular gap for branded packaging for businesses requiring a quick turnaround, and so our sister company Fast Printed Packaging was born.
Mailcoms Warehouse
Having outgrown our previous premises, Mailcoms realised the need for vast storage space and so invested over one million pounds in new facilities and operations. Having supplied over 40,000 customers from small businesses to some of the largest corporate organisations in the UK, Mailcoms has now grown to an annual turnover of nearly two million pounds and employs nearly 20 staff.

Causes we go the extra mile for

The Headcase Cancer Trust

Each year, our Founder and Managing Director, Des (who’s a keen cyclist) takes part in an charity bike ride as a support guide rider to help the guests achieve their dreams of ‘Pedalling the Pyrenees’. The annual Pedal the Pyrenees event travels from Biarritz on the Atlantic Ocean to Collioure on the Mediterranean Sea across all the toughest and famous climbs. This gruelling event solely raises funds for the Headcase Cancer Trust – the only charity which solely researches Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM).

Each year, Mailcoms donates vehicles, bike support equipment and of course Des to help out at the event. To date and over the years Mailcoms has proudly supported this event and has helped raise many tens of thousands of £’s in funds for this vital research.
