Companies across Britain have been recognised by the British Association for Print and Communications (BAPC) awards for excellence in print, sponsored by Duplo.
In a special luncheon in London yesterday (2nd Feb), SAXOPRINT won the BAPC ‘Business of the Year’, Vivid Laminating Technologies captured Supplier of the Year and It Has To Be Brilliant (IHTBB), the Environmental Printer of the Year category.
Sidney Bobb, BAPC Chairman said, “throughout the many years of the awards, winners. among many other companies, have turned to the BAPC for help, support or guidance. Our independent panel of judges had difficult choices to make, but were unanimous on the winners. Everybody who was nominated should also be proud of their achievements.”
“We’re also grateful for the generous support from Duplo – a company with an enviable reputation in the print industry – that enabled these awards to happen.”
An independent panel judged the entries to recognise outstanding achievement within the print and communication industry. Resonating with the BAPC’s aim to nurture a community of spirit and excellence, all nominees receive artwork for a certificate so they can demonstrate to their customers that they were in the running for an accolade.
The other short-listed companies included Canon, Copy Color, Duplo, EFI, Fineline Printing, IFS, Kall Kwik, Farnham, Print4UK, Ricoh and The Magic Touch.
Peter Jolly, Managing Director of Duplo UK added, “congratulations to all the winners and nominees. As a company with a proud heritage of supporting education and wider initiatives, this is another great opportunity to recognise excellence. The BAPC does a great job in helping companies, which is why we were delighted to sponsor the awards.”
