With over 30 years experience in commercial print, with an established reputation for producing high quality magazines and catalogues precision colour printing is at the forefront of the printing world. Not only this, but precision colour printing has gone on to win the award for Print Week’s Consumer Magazine and Catalogue Printer of the year on three occasions.

Putting our customers at the centre of their business
Working closely with their customers to gain a full understanding of their needs, they pride themselves on a true partnership approach with effective communication. With a dedicated Customer Service Representative managing each account, their customers can rely on a reliable and responsive service.

What PCP do
Specialising in Magazines, Company Brochures, Catalogues and Mailers, print is their business, their livelihood and at the very heart of all that they do. They foster a culture where employees take pride in their work and with a policy of providing their staff with continual training of the highest standard they have the latest skills at their disposal. It is an approach that continues to attract the very best print professionals.

Working within the community
As well as attracting and recruiting experienced staff from within the industry, Precision Colour Printing recognises the need for recruiting and training from the ground level, creating employment opportunities and training for people in the local area. Precision Colour Printing has recruited a number of apprentices in conjunction with the British Printing Industries Federation. By working alongside local colleges they plan to offer sustainable employment in the Press Room, Bindery and Engineering departments.

Investment
Since 2000, they have also invested over £20m in new equipment, including a Xerox C1000 colour digital press from Fuji. Their Komori web press was installed in September 2013. The 50K cph press comprises of 2x16p or 1x32p duplex will add a further 45% capacity for business growth to handle an increased volume of contractual work and to strengthen their relationships with long standing and new customers to provide the highest levels of service and quality levels to be proud of.

Quality
Investment in the latest equipment would mean little if their finished product did not meet client expectations – this is why they employ a rigorous checking process throughout all of their print runs – achieving the ISO9001 Quality Control accreditation. They’ll confirm that they are committed to every project, treat each piece of work as if it were their own, always respond to requests quickly, can be relied upon for speedy turnaround, apply the utmost care and attention to their work and are cost effective.

Caring about the environment
With a serious commitment to the environment, they continue to reduce their carbon footprint by the usage of recycled paper and paper from sustainable forests, the recycling of waste products, complying with recently introduced solvent emissions and by constantly reviewing their energy efficiency. Through these measures they have achieved both ISO14001 Environmental accreditation and are fully FSC and PEFC certified.
