Printing Excellence wins Golds for APN Print

Printing Excellence wins Golds for APN Print

Teamwork and commitment to quality has resulted in every APN Print site in New Zealand winning Gold Medals at New Zealand’s most prestigious print industry gathering, the Pride In Print Awards.

Of the nine Gold Medals awarded in the Newspapers Category, no less than six went to APN Print plants.

APN Print Ellerslie won three with the New Zealand Herald 19/6/12, the Hamilton News 30/11/12 and The Weekend Sun 15/6/12; APN Print Wanganui won with the Rangitikei District Monitor; APN Print Tauranga with the Bay of Plenty Times 30/5/12 and APN Print Hastings with Hawke's Bay Today 3/10/12.

APN Print sites also won four of the seven Highly Commended Awards issued in the category — Hastings and Tauranga achieving two each.

APN Print New Zealand general manager Dan Blackbourn paid tribute to the staff efforts that had made the success possible, saying: “The great thing is that these entries were really representative of what we produce consistently.

“These are good examples of what we do in our plants daily and therefore it is a feather in the cap of our staff for the consistency of their quality standards.

“All our staff will be rapt with this and they deserve a pat on the back.”

Mr Blackbourn says APN Print’s continuing success at Pride In Print was a reflection of its commitment to both the print industry and the future of newspapers.
