Our Team

With a wealth of experience our team have the knowledge to help you with your next print project.

Geoff Natriss

Managing Director

Geoff has been involved with A1 Press for over 30 years having joined the company as an eager to learn 19 year old. His aim was to become a printer after having a short spell of working for Farnell Instruments as a screen printer.

Geoff was keen to be involved in a creative process that had him producing something tangible at the end of each working day. Geoff’s aims didn’t materialise in the way he had imagined and he never got to run a press and found his skills with numbers and being organised led him in a different office based direction.

Geoff was soon the office manager dealing with estimating, production and accounts and once the previous owners had signalled their intent to retire Geoff saw his opportunity to take his role to the next level. Geoff and Rob bought A1 Press in December 2005 and have taken it on to another level, managing to move to their purpose built factory in Sherburn in Elmet in 2017.

Father to 3 beautiful grown up children Geoff is a keen sportsman and has played both Football and Cricket to a good standard and still likes to keep himself in shape by running and gym classes.

Rob Want


Rob started his journey in the print world back in 1989 after a three years in the engineering trade.

Starting as an apprentice learning the hard way on a single colour SRA3 Thompson Crown Press, Working his way up to an A0 6 colour Komori’s.

Throughout that time, working for small medium and large commercial printers and ending up in the direct mail / envelope manufacturing where he moved in to a management roll.

In 2005 Rob was offered the chance to buy a 50% stake in A1 along with Geoff which he accepted the offer taking over the rains with Geoff in Jan 2006.

Throughout the years involved in print Rob has become a bit of a litho print geek who’s been known to bore people to sleep at parties rattling on about the litho process.

A Father of three and 2020 seeing the arrival of his first Grandson Rob is very much a family man. His perfect afternoon would be surrounded by his family with the BBQ glowing and a cold beer in hand.

Rob is keen on most sports but Motorcycle racing and Football are top of the list competing both at various times through his years, Rob’s still managing to stay involved in football coaching at his local junior side.

Andrew Ingram

Sales Manager

Andrew has been involved with the printing industry for more years than he cares to mention. The son of a Newspaper Compositor, his first job at 14 was taking the Football Results to be converted to “hot metal” for the final Saturday edition print run of The Doncaster Evening Post!

From here he was trained as a litho printer working for Local Government and spent many years steadily rising to senior printer before moving into the Newspaper industry and training as a web-offset printer printing National Daily Newspapers.

A few years at college saw a move into Production Management before finally settling in a customer facing Sales role.
Andrew brings many years of print knowledge and experience to his position as Sales Manager. His understanding of the complete print process from design to execution allow him to advise customers how to get the very best result from their print based projects. He can also recognise opportunities to use clever techniques to save customers money on their projects.

A married father of 2 teenage boys, he likes nothing more than listening to his collection of 1960’s Rhythm and Blues records whilst waxing his moustache!

As a business PCS have been working with A1 Press for many years now making them an established and trusted supply partner. I have always found them to be very quick to respond to enquiries, extremely professional and importantly they provide high quality print and finishing combined with a quick turnaround.

This combination isn’t always possible at competitive prices but A1 seem to be able to provide this mix of ingredients. I would therefore not hesitate is recommending Geoff and Rob for any type of print job.
