PrintWeek Awards 2019

The PrintWeek Awards 2019 was celebrated on Monday 21st October, 2019, at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.  The Awards are the most prestigious event in the industry’s calendar, boasting the biggest number of print buying and print production professionals in attendance, celebrating the very best the print industry has to offer.  The judging panel is made up of more than 20 leading print buyers and experts in their fields.

Newspaper printing is arguably one of the most challenging print sectors.  High volumes and quick turnarounds leave little margin for error and we were very pleased that both our Watford and Luton sites were shortlisted for this award, with Watford taking it home on the night. John Brewis, MD of Reach Printing Services, said “It’s great the judges chose Watford again.  It’s a recognition of the skill and hard work of all of our staff who work night-in, night-out to deliver for our customers.”

We were also very proud that Callum Cusack, who joined Reach Printing Services Watford in 2014 as an Engineering Assistant, was Highly Commended for Trainee of the Year.  Callum recently completed an apprenticeship and has a very promising career ahead of him in the print industry.  Colin Brookes, Director and General Manager of the Watford site, said “We are delighted that someone who we brought through as an apprentice and is now a full time part of our excellent engineering team has been recognised in this way.”
