Last year we achieved the coveted Quality Management System ISO9001 accreditation as well as the Environmental Management Standard ISO14001. In the UK less than 10% of printers have both accreditations, so this really does set us apart from our competitors.
The ISO 9001 system aims to recognise and promote high standards of Company management and is a standard that is recognised around the world as the symbol of a well run and responsible company.
We continued to make great progress in 2009 despite the economic woes. We acquired a further 3000 sq ft at our W1 – Newman St – print centre. In addition, a five colour Heidelberg press was acquired and installed in the printroom in W1 to work alongside the existing two other Heidelberg presses. The installation included a ‘chemical free’ plate maker which along with our use of vegetable based inks supplied by Heidelberg makes our press room one of the cleanest in London and helped significantly in gaining the environmental ISO14001.
We upgraded our colour digital print operation with the purchase of two Xerox ‘high end’ digital printers. These new digital presses give us much better quality at a faster speed helping us to cope with those ever decreasing deadlines.
