Wyndeham Group is owned by Walstead Investments Limited, a privately-owned UK-based investment company.

Walstead Investments entered the UK's web offset printing sector in October 2008 when it acquired Wyndeham Press Group Limited from Landsbanki Islands hf. Walstead's strategy has been to consolidate the sector through acquisition and restructuring.

It acquired Southernprint Holdings Limited from Newsquest Media in July 2009, and the business and assets of Apple Web Offset from Trader Media Group in November 2010.

In April 2011 Walstead completed the acquisition of St Ives plc's Web Division and has merged it with Wyndeham Group. The £20 million deal, which was funded by The Royal Bank of Scotland Group, has created the largest magazine and commercial heatset web offset printing business in the UK.
