“This is a truly proud moment,” said Bruce Podmore, md of Windles addressing the workforce at the Thame-based, printing group the day after the awards ceremony. “This award is not just down to those in our team who take the orders from our publisher customers, it’s down to the individuals who prepare the files for print, to those who ensure the presses run smoothly, to others who oversee the finishing right through to those loading the vans for delivery and invoicing for the job. This magnificent achievement is down to each and every one of you in our team,” added Bruce.
