Printed visual communications specialist Blink print has marked he start of its 20th anniversary year by achieving ISO14001 and ISO 9001 certification, underpinning its quality and environmental credentials.
MD Esther Butterfield said the move, together with the recent installation of an Agfa Jeti Tauro, ongoing investment and new senior hires to bolster its sales and production teams, means the company is well positioned to achieve growth in 2022.
“The road for our industry during the pandemic has been bumpy, to say the least. We’ve managed to successfully navigate the various challenges this year has thrown up and have become stronger as a result. This dual certification underlines the ambitious programme of investment that we have carried out over the last 12 months, and our belief within the company that the year ahead will be one of new opportunities and growth,” said Butterfield.
The certification was awarded to the Leicestershire-based firm by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited body TUV UK.
“While many of the procedures were already in place, the auditing and certification process provided us with an opportunity to put every element of our business under microscopic scrutiny - sense-checking and street-testing our standards of service, competency, efficiency, quality and environmental standards that we have always prided ourselves on and which, for our clients, have become synonymous with the name blink,” Butterfield added.
The company provides direct-to-client printed visual communications for several leading retailers and brands, as well as white-label print services to several major UK retail display agencies.
