APS Group launch Business Continuity Service to support critical customer communications

APS Group have developed and launched a business continuity service for companies and service providers looking for a trusted partner to support their organisation in the event of unforeseen circumstances, making sure that business-critical documents continue to reach their customers.

The goal here for APS was creating a simple end-to-end business continuity service to streamline the handling of difficult, unforeseen situations. This goes beyond printing and enclosing digital output securely and at scale, and covers design, artworking, document composition, pre-processing, pre-printed documents, insert printing, warehousing and logistics, to name but a few of the critical services that can comprise the whole process. The service APS provide removes unnecessarily complex supply-chain issues and operational management in times of organisational stress.

APS has two state-of-the-art facilities. The first is a ‘warm standby site’, dedicated solely to digital print and enclosing, and is equipped with high-speed full-colour digital presses, cut-sheet printers, high-speed enclosing lines, a variety of finishing equipment and extensive warehousing. The other facility is within a 30 minute-drive and encompasses everything from warehousing and logistics through to high-volume full-colour digital print and enclosing. With over 100,000 sq. ft of production space and warehousing and significant recent investment, the site features new high-speed full colour digital presses, ultra-high-speed envelope inserting with inkjet addressing capability and a purpose built ‘smart factory’ for high-security, complex, lower volume jobs.

Our sites hold the expected accreditations for cyber, data management, production and despatch, and our customers can always rely on APS to manage sensitive data professionally.

Steve Goodall, Group Operations Director at APS explains, “With both of our facilities located close to Manchester Airport and all the main motorway hubs, we have excellent accessibility from almost anywhere in the UK. Our modern facilities are all purpose-designed and built for efficiency, making sure that our clients are assured they are in safe hands. Alongside these facilities, we have Lean Six Sigma teams across all our capabilities who will support and look after our customers every step of the way, and in times of difficulty, we will do all we can to reduce the stress.” 

Let’s make more possible.
