By: Maisie McCabe | MediaWeek

Richard Desmond, chairman of Northern & Shell, reinforced his commitment to print media for the next 25 years and beyond last night (28 November), with the launch of his £100m print plant in Luton.

The new presses started printing the Daily Star last night and will begin publishing Northern & Shell’s other papers in the coming weeks. The presses have the capacity to print one million newspapers every three hours.

Initially, the Luton plant will print Northern & Shell’s newspapers, including the Daily Star, Daily Star Sunday, Daily Express and Sunday Express, jointly with the existing Docklands site, but all newspaper printing will move to Luton by March 2012.
