Winsford-based manufacturer considering expansion

11 February 2021

A Winsford-based manufacturer of patient information leaflets has been buoyed by an improved performance and is eyeing further expansion.

Technoprint is one of the country's largest independent suppliers of its kind.

It has been serving the pharmaceutical, healthcare, veterinary, cosmetic, veterinary, electrical and other related industries since 1988.

Speaking to Insider, managing director Alan Ryan reflected on the resilience shown by manufacturers during the pandemic.

"We are very grateful to be working in an industry that is well protected when compared to other sectors," he said.

"We're also benefiting from our customers being more open to having a second supplier due to their concerns relating to continuity of supply from current suppliers, due to Covid-19 related production issues."

Looking ahead, Ryan is anticipating further success.

"Since the start of 2021, we have seen our trading improve compared to Q4 last year, with significant spend from new customers.

"We are very confident that the improved use of digital technology, and having a management team and colleagues with a positive mindset, will result in further expansion."

Ryan also noted that Technoprint was surprised at "how successful home working has been for our company, particularly the use of virtual meetings".

"Going forward, we are more open to flexible working for our office staff and fully expect to reduce travel for visiting customers and make more use of virtual meetings," he added.

"We have been pleasantly surprised with the efficiency gained throughout the business."
