Cristel Graphics Limited was formed on 1 January 1999 out of a partnership, which was originally created in 1983 between John Wormald and Terry Broadbent, when Simplex Time Recorder Co., a global US organisation, closed down their UK manufacturing subsidiary, Simplex Time Recorder Co. (UK) Limited. These two executives between them had purchased the UK electronics, manufacturing and printing businesses, forming Cristel Graphics. The company was split into 3 main product areas: Time/Clock Cards, Time Equipment and General Printing.
The Company relocated from Dunkirk Mills, Dunkirk Street, Halifax during 2008 to The Print Works, Lightowler Road, Halifax, formerly part of the Remploy Halifax site.
Cristel Graphics Ltd. is an active member of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce (MYCCI) and the Calderdale & Kirklees Manufacturing Alliance (CKMA). We are also a corporate member of Overgate Hospice, member no. 49818.
