Following months of planning Wyndeham Group has completed the last project as a print supplier to Haymarket Media Group and LOCOG for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The production of a significant amount of the Olympic printed programmes was produced by the Group’s Wyndeham Heron facility near Colchester with support from its sister sites Wyndeham Peterborough, Wyndeham Roche and Wyndeham Grange. The contract required Wyndeham Group to print a number of magazine products including 2012 Hours to Go, Our Greatest Team, Olympic Preview, Official International Football, Official Olympic Souvenir Programme, Official Paralympic Souvenir Programme, Olympic Review, and 16 issues of the Official Daily Programme. All titles were produced to demanding schedules and utilised all aspects of Wyndeham Heron’s equipment together with a retro-fitted sticker applicator on one of the binders to apply a Holographic sticker to a number of titles.
Gary Charlton, Head of Production at Haymarket, commented: “Wyndeham Group has performed brilliantly on the daily programmes and souvenir guides for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The project required complex logistical planning and Wyndeham Group worked with us every step of the way. The quality of the final products is testament to all their hard work. As a long-term print supplier to Haymarket, I am delighted that we have been able to work with Wyndeham Group on this project.”
Paul Utting, Chief Executive Officer at Wyndeham Group, added: “We were absolutely delighted to be appointed as a key supplier for such a prestigious national project and Wyndeham Heron, together with our other subsidiaries, rose to the challenge and delivered time-sensitive, high quality products we can be proud to be associated with. The teamwork displayed by all the companies involved has been outstanding.”
