There is no sign yet that life is going to get any easier in the printing industry: after many years of technical development and over-supply, only the fittest will survive.
Productivity and efficiency alone are not enough. Product quality now needs to be combined with quality in management, production and environmental standards. The British Printing Industries Federation’s Annual Excellence Awards are one way in which the industry can benchmark progress and encourage print companies to strive for quality.
WasteCare has supported the BPIF for many years and is proud to be associated with the Environmental Excellence Award in 2008. This year has seen the largest number of entrants for this prestigious award, proving that the environment is firmly on the agenda. Following independent judging, the winners were announced at the Awards ceremony at the London Hilton, Park Lane, on 30 June. They were Stratförs (winner) with Horner Bros Print Group and Park Communications the runners-up.
