New group, new sustainable priorities
Last year, the Precision Proco Group was announced. A result of the merger between Precision printing, Proco, Prime, Where the Trade Buys, and digital marketing and e-commerce platform developer, Climb, representing a £45m multi-site, commercial and online print group. With this move, the company is redefining how it thinks about its impact on the world, and is developing a green plan to involve greater levels of ethical and sustainable attainment.
“We want to balance profitability with doing the right thing and consider our impact on the environment,” says the Group’s Compliance and Quality Control Manager, Kirsty Osborne.
Carl has been working with CMYUK for three years, initially reaching out for help with a volume textile solution. “That’s where the relationship started, and it’s just opened up from there. CMYUK was always first in front of us with a new product. It offers products that are out of the ordinary and a bit different to everybody else, that’s why I’ve always kept them in mind. If I need material for a specific use for our stock credentials, I know CMYUK will find it for me,” he says.
At present, Carl is set to evaluate PVC-free Kavalan from CMYUK, the game-changing replacement to traditional PVC, which he expects to add as the main product range for banner work.
Says Carl, “The new group that we have created is all about the future possibilities of print. Underpinning that is our commitment to the environment and alternative products like UFabrik and Kavalan. They not only perform better to what they replace but do it in a way that benefits the environment, which is good for business and good for us all.”
