Environmental issues put pressure on print management

January 5, 2010 by  

A Liverpool Gravure printing company, Prinovis, has invested in improvements to its environmental credentials. The company is now ISO 14001 certified and has further secured OHSAS 18001 health and safety certification.

There is increasing pressure on retailers and print management companies to use environmentally responsible printing companies. It was as a result of this that the print company in Liverpool decided to boost its ‘green’ credentials.

The decision to upgrade seems to have worked well for Prinovis. MD Richard Gray said:

“The company’s substantial environmental investments had had a massive impact on its success in securing relationships with key customers. Prinovis Liverpool is custom built, which means it is highly streamlined. The fact that we do not transport materials around the facility makes us unique in the UK”

The company believes in a policy of maximum efficiency and minimum waste. This is achieved by keeping up to date with new cutting edge technology. Prinovis use the most advanced printing software, presses and finishing systems to produce high quality, high volume colour publications. The firm operates out of a 63.000sqm site which has a patented system ensuring that the plant is virtually emission free.

This is good news for the environment but it seems now that other printing companies around Liverpool will seek ISO 14001 status as part of their sound business practice. Environmental demands are set to increase as global warming issues continue to become increasingly urgent.
