Our History

BCQ Group began life as Busiprint in 1976.

The company was based on Well Street in central Buckingham (where we still have a shop of the same name today), providing reprographic and print farming to its customers.

From here the company grew and expanded onto nearby Bridge Street, where it moved into Transformer House in 1982 and later expanded into other buildings on the same site. The company became known as Buckingham Colour Group (BCG) and the site as Riverside Works.

The company stayed here until 2002 when it moved into its current purpose built premises on Osier Way.

In January 2007 Buckingham Colour Group merged with Colour Quest Group to become BCQ Group as it is known today.
