The Eurocentral print plant achieved ISO 9001 status in Spring 2009, awarded for the printing and packaging of high quality colour newspapers from electronic page data supplied by publishers.


The top accolade was as a result of Newsprinters¹ determination to implement a first rate Quality Management System (QMS) across all aspects of its Eurocentral plant.


Richard Bennett, manufacturing manager at Eurocentral said when the award was achieved: 'It is a tribute to the entire team here at Eurocentral, and clearly demonstrates that our mission to be the best newspaper manufacturer in the world is not simply words'. The ISO 9001 award confirms that we deliver consistent application of procedures and processes right across the organisation. This results in increased performance, consistent quality and an absolute focus on the customer.


And there was praise from the assessor Julie Turner of BM Trada which conducted the independent audit: 'I have never been at a company before where the senior management and staff demonstrated a total commitment to the development and implementation of their new Quality Management System. All required elements of the ISO 9001: 2000 have been met to a high standard'.
