PennWhite Increase Manufacturing Capacity.

A new 7,000 litre vessel has been installed at PennWhite’s Middlewich factory. The vessel is dedicated to the production of printing emulsions and was purchased in response to the success of recently launched PennWhite Print Solutions Ltd. Its Commercial Director Karl Mallard believes that “having a vessel dedicated to printing formulations will enable us to deliver even better products and service to the industry”.

PennWhite’s technical team are being supplemented by the addition of an experienced Development Chemist. Joining the business next month, our new chemist will play a key role in creating products tailored to specific customer needs. Two new production operatives, both with a wealth of industry experience, will also join PennWhite next month.

 Group Managing Director John Whitehead believes the growth of the business is down to the dedication of PennWhite’s staff to “getting the job done right, first time, every time. These additional resources represent our on going commitment to that objective”.

PennWhite Selected For The London Olympics

In just a few weeks, the focus of the world will be on London as it hosts the games of the 30th Olympiad. For journalists, competitors, spectators and TV viewers across the globe, a key source of information will be the Official London 2012 Olympic Magazine. This once in a lifetime publication must reflect the talent and expertise of the British printing industry. It will also be seen as an indicator of the professionalism and quality of the London games as a whole.

Wyndeham Herron, based in Essex have been tasked with printing 1.8 million copies of this official Olympic magazine. Shortly after being awarded the contract, Wyndeham Herron asked PennWhite to develop a silicone emulsion that would both protect the Olympic paper stock and deliver the high quality finish required for such a prestigious job. After a fast track development and test program, an optimal formulation was agreed.

Over the last weekend in June, PennWhite manufactured 3,000 kg of this unique silicone emulsion for delivery to Wyndeham Herron. We are thrilled to be playing a small but important part in the success of London 2012, and wish Team GB every success!
