A short history written by the late Ray Cody, a founder, on 14th April 2007
Modern Printers started trading in 1962. It was founded by Martin Grace and myself. It was a long struggle as I knew very little about the printing business. The printing office started at No. 10 Walkin Street in a building belonging to Paddy Brennan. It was the old St. Mary’s Club. When we started out we rented the place from Paddy Brennan at £1 per week. Then we bought the building and added a little every year until we could buy more. We have now moved to Loughboy where we are still trading today.
Kilkenny Modern Printers prides itself in being one of the most modern print and design facilities in the South East. From design to finishing we have the most up to date machinery available to produce efficiently, any print job you may require.
Modern Printers remains a family business to this day; Liam Cody, Ray’s son is now the Managing Director. More recently his daughter Dara has also followed him into the business together with her husband Dean. They look forward to continuing to work successfully with local businesses in Kilkenny and the South East.
In 2019 Modern Printers became the proud to be the main sponsor for Freebooters Football Club Kilkenny. Located in Kilkenny city with multiple teams including with junior, youths, ladies, schoolboys & schoolgirl teams they are an integral part of the local community which we are delighted to be a small part of.
