Associated Printers Ltd

Associated Printers Ltd

Lusaka

Associated Printers Ltd was established in 1964 by the Frost family who were originally farmers who came to the area in 1907. The family moved from farming to the printing industry when land ownership became uncertain in the build-up to the independence of Zambia.

Through the amalgamation of many small printing firms, the family built Associated Printers into a thriving 300-worker company headquartered in Zambia’s booming copper belt. However, with independence came large-scale nationalisation of the mines and a steady decline of the economy.

By the mid-1990’s Associated Printers had been reduced to “a few crumbs of its former self”. Priscilla Frost, a journalist, decided to return to Zambia to rescue the family business. Priscilla managed to stabilise Associated Printers but soon handed over the operations to her brother, Peter.

In 2000, Peter immediately set about modernising Associated Printers. Using some capital from the sale of properties belonging to the family, new printing machines were installed, and a signage division was started.

In 2019, the company is moving to develop sites for billboards, and its first mall-based print shop.

1979 – Royal Tour of South Africa

Royal Tour of South Africa

19 July – 4 August 1979

In 1979, Queen Elizabeth II, on behalf of Britain toured Tanzania (19-22 July), Malawi (22-25 July), Botswana (25-27 July), and Zambia (27 July – 4 August). The tour was to coincide with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting being held in Lusaka. She toured with Prince Philip and her son, Prince Andrew.

The aim of the tour, with the United Nations, was to achieve peace and justice in Southern Africa and to play an active part in the development and strengthening of the Commonwealth by promoting successful co-operation between industrialised and developing countries for the benefit of both.

The visit to Zambia was considered a risky undertaking due to the questionable level of safety for a visiting monarch in Zambia at the time – a VIP flight had recently been attacked in Zambian air space. Many were strongly of the belief that the Queen should not go ahead with the tour. However, Elizabeth was resolved to make the trip.
