October 10, 2007 -- Polestar Colchester has added two new children's magazines to the existing portfolio of titles it prints for BBC Magazines. In the Night Garden, which launched last month, and Robin Hood, on sale this week, have been printed at the plant, joining other children's favourites, including Bob the Builder and Teletubbies.
Koli Pickersgill, Group Production Manager at BBC Magazines, says: "There is obviously a comfort factor of working with someone who knows our quality requirements and Polestar Colchester has successfully been entrusted with a number of our launches, in particular within the children's market. Because of this relationship and their experience, we are happy to award them these contracts."
Alastair Clarke, Polestar Key Account Director, adds: "BBC Magazines is market leader in the young children's magazine sector and we are delighted to be part of that success. Polestar Colchester has the experience and expertise to handle the schedules and quality these titles require."
