UK's BPIF announces "Print is a great industry"

Monday, November 22, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Print is a great industry- its official! And we don’t just mean it’s a great industry to work in either. Print plays a vitally important role in the performance of UK plc, and has huge economic significance nationally. 

Did you know that the UK print sector:
- is World’s fifth largest producer of printed products?
- has a turnover of £14.3 billion?
- has a gross value added of £6.4 billion?
- has 10,500 companies?
- employs 140,000 people?
- had a positive trade balance of £1 billion in 2009?
- made a capital investment of £700 million in 2008?

Using data from a wide range of official sources, the BPIF has published a new flyer UK printing - the facts and figures, a copy of which has been sent to all its member companies with the November issue of BPIF membership magazine inprint. It sets out detailed information on the structure of the printing industry by region and product, as well as covering its economic importance and its productivity. It also highlights the effectiveness and sustainability of print as a modern communications medium.

The BPIF has produced this flyer as part of our on-going programme of representational activity directed toward influencing government agencies and other organisations whose decisions impact on the industry’s interests. As with Priorities for Print – the lobbying document that the BPIF published earlier this year, UK printing - the facts and figures will be used to educate politicians, parliamentarians and public servants about the vital role print plays in today’s economy, and a copy is being sent to all MPs.. The BPIF is keen to encourage companies to use in their own contacts with external audiences, including customers, and its handy fold up laminated format means it’s ideal to carry with you on your travels.
