Pepper celebrates 40th Anniversary and ups capacity with machinery investment
In early April 2022, Pepper Communications, which employs 50 staff, and is a member of the PMG, began celebrating its 40th Anniversary.
The team have reflected that over these 40 years, Pepper has evolved in a great many ways and would not have achieved such success without their amazing dedicated and hard working team.
Since 1982, the company has also developed relationships with wonderful customers and fantastic suppliers, some of which have been on a journey with Pepper from the very start, supporting each other through the hard times and the good – in their anniversary Linkedin post, the team at Pepper said that they just wanted to express a huge thank you to all these individuals and companies with whom they have created meaningful relationships.
To mark their 40 years of business, Pepper announced their pledge to take 40 planet positive actions throughout this year to reinforce their carbon neutral, planet positive operation and attempt to help others reach their zero carbon goals along the way.
Last year, the company also became a member of print and paper advocacy group Two Sides and again laid out details of its Planet Positive Initiative.
In readiness for their 40th year, Pepper also recently told the PMG Office that they have invested in a Bowe Systec Fusion Lite inserter to increase their productivity and capacity. This investment reported recently in PrintWeek, explained that the machine was installed at the company’s purpose-built Plymouth headquarters in November 2021.
Pepper Communications operations director Jake Whitford said: “The Fusion Lite provides Pepper Communications with the ability to access a greater volume and variety of work and help with the migration of polywrap work to enveloping.This new mailing investment is built immensely well, designed with speed, integrity and quality in mind, and the run ability of jobs and reporting is superb. With Fusion Lite working at a greater speed, we have already started benefitting from the efficiencies gained. Some jobs that would have previously taken us two shifts to complete have been completed in one shift and we haven’t even fully pushed it yet.”
It is great to see a member company going from strength to strength with such a great environmental ethos – so it just leaves us to say Happy 40th Anniversary to all the team at Pepper from the PMG Office!
