Discovery Print, the contract printing arm of DC Thomson, is celebrating a run of success having recently won two new newspaper printing contracts and been shortlisted for a number of awards.
The two contract wins will see Discovery Print increase production on the Goss CPS presses and producing a further 30 Scottish weekly regional titles. The result of this increase in production is that every region is Scotland will have a newspaper that is printed by Discovery Print.
Head of Operations, Guy Forester, said “I’m delighted that Discovery Print has secured two weekly Scottish portfolios. The production facility in Dundee is the most recent newspaper press installation in the UK with state of the art printing and finishing capabilities.
“We are keen to grow our contract print portfolio and with added value offerings such as stitch & trim, insertion and variable data digital printing, we are in a strong position to do so.“
The company has also been shortlisted for three awards at the Production Journal awards, which take place on Wednesday 27th April.
