11 Jan Here’s what the Panda Press team got up to in 2015
Busy year for print and design
ONCE in a while it does a business good to look back and, as we begin 2016 busier than ever, now seems as good a time as any to think about what we achieved in 2015.
Spinning our web
For a start, we launched our new website in March and we’re rather proud of it.
What we wanted was a visually appealing and easy-to-navigate design that really does us justice. It also gave us the opportunity to spell out our company’s key principles – or what we like to call the Panda Difference.
You can read more about what this means on our homepage but in a nutshell, we are a family firm based in Stone, Staffordshire, who believes in working with customers to achieve the best possible results. If that sounds a bit like your average sales spiel, we really mean it.
That’s why we will always make time for a face-to-face chat, offer advice from concept through to print and provide a free hard-copy proof. Not many printing firms are like us.
No wonder, then, that our client base is growing. Throughout 2015 we continued to work with Stoke City to produce printed matchday materials including team sheets, menus, promotional flyers and parking passes for the Britannia Stadium.
Then, in September, we were able to build on the sporting theme by announcing a deal with Bristol Sport, which oversees commercial and merchandising operations for Championship club Bristol City as well as the city’s Rugby Union team.
When we invested in a new printing press two years ago, we wanted it to help us to expand even further and 2015 saw our plan really come to fruition. However, even though we’ve grown, what will never change is the fact that we truly value all our clients, near and far, from small local businesses to multinational giants.
Growing the team
Last year also saw us adding to our team. Customer service manager Craig Evans joined us on the strength of his 30 years in the print industry, while Alison Denham in our accounts department has also become a permanent member of staff. Not forgetting our apprentice, Rhys Lowe, who is working across all departments to learn different aspects of the printing trade.
So as you can see, it has certainly been a busy year for the Panda Press team.
Here’s to an equally successful 12 months ahead for us and all our clients. We can’t wait to see what 2016 brings.
