    [FONT=&quot]Bristol’s very own printers Minuteman Press have won a national print award in the British Printing Industry Federation’s (BPIF) Excellence Awards 2008.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Following a day of judging by a panel of print industry experts, Minuteman Press Bristol were voted winners from a shortlist of three finalists including £18 million turnover SMP Group PLC. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]The award is for the performance of Minuteman Press Bristol in the Marketing category.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]The performance of the company January 2007 to March 2008 qualified for inclusion.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]“I purchased Minuteman Press in August 2006. The company required a significant overhaul in several functions to ensure that product quality, lead-time and customer response were excellent. A comprehensive marketing strategy was implemented alongside to ensure continued growth and expansion of facilities.” Peter Wise, Director, Minuteman Press.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]“Reaching the final was the result of a fantastic team effort and a lot of hard work. We never dreamt that we would actually win and beat the large London corporates”. Peter Wise, Director, Minuteman Press.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]“I am so proud. I never thought that a company our size would be able to take on such giants, let alone win. A BPIF award is the equivalent of winning a BAFTA in the film industry” Ryan Smith, Design Manager, Minuteman Press.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]“We were invited to deliver a written submission and a portfolio of our marketing strategy. The information needed to be clear, creative and differentiated. It had to show the synergy between our marketing strategy and our organisational priorities. We were also required to provide tangible results of the success of our strategy” Minuteman Press Director Peter Wise.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]“These awards celebrate best practice in managing print businesses, highlighting the very best in class. We are very excited about this year's awards: they take a great deal of energy to organise but we always feel a sense of achievement when we see the calibre and number of entries.” Michael Johnson, Chief Executive, BDIF.
