Hollingworth & Moss rebrands following merger

Jan 29, 2021

by Stephen Chapman Two of the North’s most established bookbinders have officially merged. Richard Hollingworth acquired Spink and Thackray in 2018 and it had been running alongside Hollingworth & Moss ever since. However, they have now decided to streamline both businesses into a single, Spink & Thackray brand. It means that Spink & Thackray has relocated to a 10,000 sq ft purpose-built factory based in Leeds, with their team of bookbinders, creatives and archival digitisation experts. “I am delighted to officially announce that Hollingworth & Moss has merged to Spink & Thackray at what is a hugely exciting time for the business providing our clients a much larger variety of bookbinding and Archival Digitisation services,” explained Richard Hollingworth, Managing Director of Spink & Thackray. “By bringing both businesses together we can offer the widest range of bookbinding products and services to our customers, as well as book conservation and document restoration, digitisation of bound archives and much more from our dedicated premises in the centre of Leeds. “We also retain the unrivalled history and heritage of both businesses while further establishing Spink & Thackray as the leading bookbinder in the UK thanks to the incredible team of highly skilled binders and creatives that have worked for the business for many years.” It marks a full circle for the Hollingworth family, as Richard Hollingworth’s father worked at Spink & Thackray as an apprentice bookbinder in 1960, before setting up Hollingworth & Moss in 1966. The business undertakes bookbinding for clients ranging from the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge and The British Library to branded work with Aston Martin, Bentley and restaurants.
