Friday, May 17, 2013

LONDON - Wyndeham Group has continued to strengthen its market position by extending the print contract with The Economist for an additional three years and means that the title will continue to be produced by Wyndeham Peterborough until at least April 2017.

The Economist has an ABC circulation of 210,386 copies and is printed weekly on both of Wyndeham Peterborough’s Lithoman IV 72pp presses and finished primarily on the Ferag stitching line and supported by additional high-speed Tempo lines.

Simon Maggs, Production Manager at The Economist Group, commented: “I’m very pleased to have been able to extend our contract with Wyndeham Group. The Economist demands high standards in print and production whilst achieving a very challenging distribution schedule. Our colleagues at Peterborough have an unrivalled understanding of our requirements and I expect they will continue to deliver to our high expectations.”

Paul Utting, Chief Executive Officer at Wyndeham Group, added: “Wyndeham Peterborough is structured specifically for the production of time-sensitive, fast-turnaround products; contracts such as The Economist ensure we are regularly tested to deliver on time, every time. This contract extension demonstrates our client’s confidence in Wyndeham Group and provides a solid foundation for the Peterborough site.”
