“We are thrilled to have reached the finals in three categories of the PrintWeek Awards this year,” commented Michelle Mills, business development and marketing manager of Windles told PG Buzz. The Oxon-based company, which prints for many card publishers is a contender in the Environmental Company of the Year, Social Stationery of the Year and Customer Service Team of the Year awards. Michelle says that reaching the finals in the Environmental Company of the Year category is especially significant as it is further reinforcement of the company’s programme of improvements and initiatives on the environmental front. These include “a significant reduction in Co2 emissions, recycling and waste management schemes, the initiation of Kard Klasp™, reducing the amount of single use plastic consumption from our factory, the successful conversion of publishers switching their GC1 board to a British made product Incada Silk, adoption of biodegradable Enviro-Flitter on greeting cards and more.”

The Sherwood Group is in the finals in the FMCG Packaging Printer of the Year category reflecting all its development work, including on the eco-front.
