    Nationwide Print: UK Environmental Print Company Of The Year!

Nationwide Print: UK Environmental Print Company Of The Year!

Its been a memorable week here at Nationwide Print, as the whole team celebrated being crowned ‘Environmental Print Company of the Year’ at the prestigious PrintWeek Awards – known as ‘the Oscars of the print industry.’

Production Manager Matthew Pascoe attended the glittering ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 22nd October, when he was presented with the trophy.

Managing Director Julian Hocking was jubilant on hearing the news, saying: “This is such a proud moment for me and my team. These awards are hugely competitive and for an SME like us to come out on top is a great achievement.”

He added: “About eight years ago we made a commitment to become the UK’s most environmentally-friendly printer. Today we can honestly say we have achieved that. Our unwavering commitment, and the bold investments we made along the way, have been ratified by this award.”

Julian took part in an Eden Project initiative, the Green Foundation, in 2010/11 which set Nationwide Print on an exciting new course.

His participation kick-started a series of bold investments in green technology and energy saving measures, included the installation of two large solar arrays, energy-efficient office lighting, exterior cladding, the purchase of a fully electric e-Golf and many other small-scale initiatives.

Despite housing a highly energy-intensive operation, our HQ is now a net-contributor to the grid, producing more energy annually than it uses.

We believe that, despite the rise of digital marketing, there are still plenty of occasions when people want to hold a beautifully piece of print in their hands, for example when choosing a spa treatment or a luxury watch – especially if they know it has been printed by an environmentally-friendly company.

Nationwide Shortlisted For National Award

We are extremely pleased to announce that Nationwide Print has been named on the shortlist for the 2018 PrintWeek Awards – the most important set of accolades in UK printing.

The winners of the prestigious awards will be announced at a black-tie event on October 22nd at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

We have made the shortlist thanks to our sustainability credentials; we are in the running for the coveted title of ‘Environmental Company Of The Year.’ This follows our success at the 2014 awards when we scooped ‘SME Of The Year.’

These awards are incredibly competitive so to be up for another is fantastic, especially as this time it is our environmental record which is under scrutiny.

A series of bold investments in green technology and energy saving measures has been part of the strategy here at Nationwide Print since MD Julian Hocking participated in the Green Foundation initiative at the Eden Project in 2010/11.

The innovative business leaders programme prompted the installation of two large solar arrays, energy-efficient office lighting and exterior cladding – along with many other small-scale measures – transforming Nationwide Print into a green pioneer in the printing industry.

The most recent investment of a fully electric e-Golf for local meetings and small deliveries, which is charged using the on-site solar panels, has taken our sustainability credentials up another notch or two!

Cornwall is known as a centre of excellence for environmentally-friendly business practices. We are really proud to be flying the flag for Cornwall at these awards; it would be so great if we could bring home the trophy!

PrintWeek Awards 2016: ‘Highly Commended’

We are extremely pleased to announce that Nationwide Print has achieved national recognition in the most prestigious and competitive printing industry honours – the PrintWeek Awards.

We were awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the closely fought Small or Medium Enterprise (SME) category; just pipped at the post for the top spot!

The exclusive award ceremony was held on 17th October at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Our success in the PrintWeek Awards over the last few years (we won the same award back in 2014) has been a contributing factor in our continued growth. It has helped give us the confidence to invest in new technology and staff, and spurred us on to become a green leader in the printing industry.

We are proud to be counted as one of the best printing companies of our size in the whole of the UK. The team here at Nationwide are dedicated and ambitious, and it won’t be long before we secure the top spot once again!

One of our clients is St Austell Brewery. Kristian Andrews, Design Manager at the brewery, said: “We work very closely with Nationwide Print and have a really effective partnership. This latest award is a fitting endorsement for a great Cornwall-based SME, which is at the cutting edge of the printing industry.”

Returning from London off the back of this award success, Nationwide Managing Director Julian Hocking will now turn his attention to rolling out new technology upgrades, including colour management software and digital finishing equipment.

We will also be continuing our programme of sustainability improvements, with external insulation and cedar cladding, and investment in electric vehicles for local deliveries.

Nationwide Print Shortlisted For PrintWeek Award

We are pleased to announce that Nationwide Print has been included in a prestigious shortlist which recognises the top print companies in the UK.

We are one of just five firms now fighting it out to be crowned Small or Medium Enterprise (SME) of the Year 2016, at the PrintWeek Awards – the most important set of accolades in UK printing.

The PrintWeek Awards are the pinnacle for our industry. They are extremely competitive and the high standard of entries demands that a lot of effort is put into the application process. The judges take into account hard figures on profit and loss, as well as investment in technology and people, and other achievements – such as winning new contracts.

Managing Director Julian Hocking knows what it’s like to scoop the top spot, after Nationwide Print won the same award in 2014.

He commented: “Winning SME of the Year at the PrintWeek Awards in 2014 was one of my proudest moments in business and a fantastic achievement for our team. It gave us renewed confidence to invest in new equipment and staff – investments which have paid off as the firm continues to go from strength to strength.”

Innovation and sustainability are at the heart of our bid for this year’s trophy.

We have invested in new Ricoh digital and Heidelberg litho machines, recruited additional skilled team members, and are currently trialling Marcom Central asset management software to help clients manage their brand across multiple sites.

Meanwhile, new solar panels, office lighting and energy efficiency savings have made Nationwide Print an industry leader in environmental policy; remarkably the firm now produces more energy annually than it uses.

We have a very clear vision, which involves staying at the cutting edge of print technology – [...]
