Walstead today announces that it has signed a long-term deal with Telegraph Media Group (TMG) to print The Saturday Telegraph magazine and Luxury supplements. The deal, which will see both publications printed at Walstead’s Bicester facility, starts next week with the 21 May issue of Saturday magazine.
The contract award follows a RFP process by TMG which concluded earlier this year. Once the contract award was made key workstreams were established to ensure a smooth transition from the incumbent printer’s gravure printing process to Walstead’s heatset web offset technology.
Richard Pickard, director of operations, Telegraph Media Group, said: “We are delighted to be working with Walstead on the printing of our magazine titles. This new partnership will support us in ensuring we deliver the highest quality print products to our loyal readers across the country.”
Paul Utting, chief executive officer, Walstead Group, said: “We are delighted to welcome TMG as a new, blue-chip customer. This contract further endorses our market-leading position for high-volume publications and adds to the growing number of newspaper supplements already won this year.”
