MetroMail is a fully-automated mailing house that was acquired by the Saga Group in 1989. Although the acquisition was planned primarily to satisfy Saga's own direct mail needs, the company has been expanded significantly to serve an impressive range of third-party clients from a variety of industry sectors.

In 2000 Saga committed to further development by investing £6m in MetroMail's state-of-the-art, 90,000 sq.ft. facility in County Durham. MetroMail can handle all stages of the direct mail cycle, from processing data and high speed laser printing, through to folding and enclosing inserts, polywrapping, handling and mailing completed packs.
