Pinstripe confirms 3 year deal as sole supplier to Edgbaston and Warwickshire CCC

Friday, June 20, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Birmingham-based Pinstripe Print Group has confirmed that the company has secured a three-year sole supplier deal with Edgbaston Stadium to provide the venue and Warwickshire County Cricket Club with print and design services. 

As a result of the deal, Pinstripe will be responsible for production of the sporting venue’s yearbook, annual report and other promotional items.

This latest news follows the recent confirmation of Pinstripe’s successful attainment of the ISO 12647-2 colour management scheme certification in January this year, establishing a UK first by becoming the first B2 printer in the UK to achieve this accreditation.

Pinstripe also became the first print group in the West Midlands to become a certified Carbon Balanced printer with The World Land Trust (certificate no: 140JTPI213), in 2013, a major endorsement of its environmental capabilities, which has been a significant factor in securing this deal.

Commenting on the announcement, Pinstripe Print Group Managing Director, Nigel Lyon, stated, “We are delighted to have been appointed as an official partner and supplier to such a prestigious and first-class sporting venue such as Edgbaston, as they only partner with the best, which we feel is an endorsement of our credentials, not only in print, but in business and environmentally.”

He continued, “We are proud to be partnered with Edgbaston and Warwickshire County Cricket Club, as we have established a good relationship with their team, and our investment in environmental standards and new equipment has clearly helped position Pinstripe as a leading player that prestigious partners such as Edgbaston want to be associated with.”

Other partners associated with Edgbaston include such leading names as Scrivens Opticians, Pinsent Masons, David Lloyd Leisure, Ticketmaster, Marstons and Elonex.

Gareth Roberts, Commercial Director at Edgbaston, said, “We’ve been working with Pinstripe for the past year, and having excelled in all areas, we were keen to develop the relationship by making the firm an official partner for the club.” 

He added, “In addition to being based locally and very easy to work with, Pinstripe deliver a total commitment to sustainable printing, and are able to supply print which has zero CO2 emissions, i.e. no CO2 impact what so ever. This is vital to us, as it fits perfectly into the club’s sustainability ethos and strong CSR policy.”

In addition to Edgbaston, Pinstripe is also a major sponsor of Birmingham-based Moseley Rugby Club.

This latest deal completes another major milestone for the forward-moving Pinstripe, following its successful completion of a significant £900,000 investment programme in 2012/13.

This investment, along with Pinstripe’s existing capabilities, places Pinstripe as one of the most technically advanced print and print management businesses in the UK. Pinstripe operates in the following markets; Public Sector/Local Government, Retail, Banking and Financial, Service and Agency.
