Print firm changes hands but stays put.

Byline: By EMYR WILLIAMS

ONE of Wales' top commercial printers has changed ownership but is to remain in Porthmadog.

Snowdonia Press/Gwasg Eryri has been sold by Gwyn Davies to local couple Liz and Jim Mowatt who own a much smaller copy printing operation in the High Street.

Mr Davies is to retire but will remain at Snowdonia Press for a few months, and may later act in an advisory capacity.

Bear Print, and its associated tailored teddy bears business, will remain in the town's High Street.

Printing firm Snowdonia Press was established by Patrick Pottle. Mr Davies purchased the business from him in 1973 and as it flourished he moved the printing works to larger premises in the town, and eventually to the Penamser Business Park, where he bought a large unit from the Welsh Development Agency.

Currently employing seven people, the business has printed high quality colour brochures for many local and national companies.
