The founders of Prepress Projects Ltd, Helen and David MacDonald, decided that employee ownership was the best way to protect the future of the business they had created. Selling to a third party may have put jobs at risk, and decision-making over services offered and clients served might have been compromised. Employee ownership allowed the company to keep its head office in Perth, and protected local jobs, company values and the long-term interests of employees. All shares in Prepress Projects Ltd have been held by an employee ownership trust since October 2022.
