29 November 2010

Wyndeham Group has been crowned Magazine Printing Company of the year at the PPA Production and Environment Awards 2010. Wyndeham beat St Ives and Polestar to the top honours which were announced at London’s Vinopolis on 26 November.

Wyndeham's winning entry showcased some of the high profile weekly and monthly publications that the group produces for its magazine publishing clients, including IPC’s Southbank title Marie Claire, which was moved to Heron in 2010 and successfully transferred from gravure to web offset production. Also entered was a special larger size fashion issue of Harper's Bazaar published by The National Magazine Company, a World Cup Preview issue of 4-4-2 with a special 10-page gatefold cover, and the 60th anniversary issue of weekly publication Autosport, both published by Haymarket.

Many of the titles produced by the Wyndeham Heron team have elements produced at other companies in the group including Wyndeham Impact, Wyndeham Grange and Wyndeham Pre-Press. By performing partnerships with its sister companies Wyndeham can provide a completely integrated end-to-end publishing solution that is managed and controlled by Wyndeham Heron.

The judging panel, which consisted of senior figures in the magazine publishing industry, said Wyndeham had “gone the extra mile with their clients offering a high quality of service with 100% accurate delivery times.”

Winning the PPA award marks a strong year for Wyndeham Group in which it also became the first heat-set web offset printer in the UK to achieve Fogra-PSO certification for colour management. To view pictures from the awards night, and see the full list of winners click here.
