About Paul

The Newey name has been synonymous with the Newcastle Printing Industry for more than 100 years.

Paul’s Grandfather, Albert, entered the industry in 1918 when he returned from World War One. He soon started his own company A.S. Newey Printing. Paul’s father, Keith, joined the business aged 15 in 1948 and the company name changed to A.S. Newey & Son. Upon Albert’s retirement in 1964, Robert Beath bought into the company and the name changed to Newey and Beath Printers and Bookbinders. Paul entered the company in 1979. Newey and Beath ceased operating in 2003. Paul started Newey Printing Company soon after, and now focuses mainly on book printing and publishing.
