Commercial & Promotional Printing

Company History

Colour Print (Tanzania) Limited was founded in 1994 as a basic commercial and stationary printer to cater to small-scale clientele and simple printing works.

In late 2004, the company underwent a corporate restructuring process with new management and staff being brought in to pave the way for the company’s future growth and expansion.

The period following the corporate restructuring has resulted in the company evolving from a small scale/basic printer to an industrial scale printer catering to clientele from all sectors in the Tanzanian market and with particular focus on corporate clients.

In late 2006, the company branched out into industrial scale packaging providing inner cartons for various industries such as tea producers, soap producers, pharmaceuticals, biscuit producers, alcoholic beverage producers to name a few.

In the first quarter of 2010, the company once again expanded further by entering the promotional printing industry and providing large-format and screen printing services and the positive response from the market has led to gradual growth of this segment of the business.

Today, we have become synonymous with high quality printing work and simultaneously giving value for money to its customers. We are proud to say that our customer service is second to none in the Tanzanian printing industry.

We continue to identify areas of growth and improvement to ensure our place as one of the leading providers of quality printing work in the Tanzanian market.

Corporate Social Responsibility

We at Colour Print (Tanzania) Limited are committed to the philosophy of corporate social responsibility (CSR). Our strong community ethos comes from being a family-owned printing business.

We ensure that our most important raw material (paper) is procured from mills/paper merchants that consider sustainable management of forests and plantations and who respect biodiversity and ensure the wood required for paper pulp comes from legal and acceptable sources and that their products can be recycled.

All inks and chemicals are disposed of as per the guidelines and regulations of the Government of Tanzania and its respective sub-organisations and ministries to ensure proper waste management.

Each employee has an individual responsibility to deal ethically with customers, suppliers, fellow employees and the general public.

Being in sub-saharan Africa where diseases such as malaria, AIDS, tubercolosis et al. are rife, we ensure that proper health awareness is promoted within our organisation for the sake of the organisation and the general community.

We care, our customers care, we should all care...
