  • Coronavirus Update: Safety and Business report

  • Coronavirus – we are still open for business!

    We would like to reassure our clients and contacts that it is very much business as usual here at CLOC LTD, our staff are hard at work producing books within our production areas.


    The safety of our staff, customers and suppliers is paramount and CLOC LTD continues to adhere to all relevant Government advice.

    We have taken safety to a higher level recently with the installation of automated face recognition thermal camera entry systems, that monitor all staff and any visiting engineers.  This process manages door unlocking, triggered by the safe zone temperature of anyone entering the offices or production areas.


    Despite these challenging and unpredictable times, CLOC has seen a substantial growth in book production, both for the UK and global markets. This increase is continuing, as many new publishing houses have found CLOC and we are working together on extensive production projects.

    The Directors of CLOC have embraced the increasing production and in the last five months have significantly invested with the purchase of another Xerox iGen 5 press in June 2020, as well as the purchase of a new 300 page per minute Xerox Nuvera mono press in late September 2020. This raises our digital presses to a total of 8 high volume machines, delivering over 2 billion digital pages per year.

    Our continued investment in machinery and automated production flows, will return considerable savings to our clients that require either larger production runs, or many shorter run titles under one batch order.

    If you require a larger project of over 500 books (or smaller quantities over many titles), please do not hesitate to contact the CLOC team for a bespoke quotation by email: [email protected]

    We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients for their continued support and custom during this unprecedented period.

    Stay safe, stay well.
