Charlesworth ISO 9001
Following a successful annual ISO external audit in March 2016, Charlesworth Press is celebrating a decade of holding the ISO 9001 Quality accreditation. There have been a lot of changes here since we were first accredited in 2006.

Our digital press room has gone from a single HP Indigo digital press to three HP Indigos and several mono digital presses. Two faster more efficient B1 colour litho presses have replaced the older litho presses we previously had in B2 and B1 size.

Binding lines have also been upgraded with a dedicated short run perfect binding line and more recently a long run 18 station PUR perfect binding line, plus additional stitching and folding lines.

Specialist print on demand capabilities have been established, which now take thousands of individual books orders online daily, combined with a whole mailing and fulfilment department to process and despatch the finished publications.

The company has also held ISO 14001 Environmental standard for almost 8 years, together with FSC Chain of Custody certification since 2009.

Managing Director David Boothman commented,

We are very proud to have been accredited to ISO 9001 for 10 years, which is testament to the hard work and dedication of our many long serving employees in ensuring we always produce the highest standards in our services.
