Vaping one of the key tools to quit smoking

A recent report published by the government outlining its strategies to eradicate smoking in England, recommended vaping use as one of the ways in which this would be achieved.

International Women’s Day 2022 – what the day means to us

The 8th March marks an important date in the calendar: International Women’s Day (IWD). The day is a chance to celebrate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women and highlight the ongoing issues of gender inequality.

 

This year’s theme is #BreaktheBias. Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias can make it difficult for women to move ahead.

 

To mark IWD some of the female-team at Technoprint have expressed their views on what the day means to them and who inspires them to be the women that they are today.

Terry the Technoprint Elf

Technoprint have a had a lovely festive surprise, Terry the Elf has been spared of his Christmas duties to come and help us!

Day 1

Just like any new starter, Terry must complete an induction to ensure he is fully aware of all safety and working practices. This ensures Terry and his colleagues remain safe and understand the importance of GMP, and our standards PS9000, ISO9001, ISO14001. We are glad to confirm Terry passed his GMP assessment with full marks!

Meet the team: Tom Hayes

We have a new Technoprofile blog for you this month. Introducing Tom Hayes, one of our newest recruits!

Having only worked here since September, Tom admits that he is still labelled as ‘the new guy’ by his colleagues. The ‘cool guy’ is his preferred nickname, however.

 

Tom’s role

Like Russ, who we introduced you to last month, Tom works within the production department in the heart of Technoprint’s operation.

Meet the team: Russ Heaton

Over the next few months, we’ll be introducing you to various members of the team on our blog.

Today we’re like you to meet Russ Heaton, one of our Production Technicians. He’s responsible for ensuring that our solutions, such as the Minutag™, Multiflet™, Pharmalite™, and Tech-Pack™, are used to create the best medical information leaflets.

Russ is a vital component in a production process that delivers an industry-leading level of service to our clients.

The future of the paper industry

It goes without saying that Technoprint relies heavily on paper. We use it to develop and manufacture all our medical information leaflets so that our customers can effectively inform patients on a variety of treatments.

But how sustainable is the paper industry, and what does the future look like? This month, we’re delving into the manufacturing, sourcing, and production of our leaflets.

 

How is paper made?

As is commonly known,

User information leaflets and vaping

Since being introduced to the UK in 2005, vaping has become widely viewed as a healthier alternative to smoking tobacco that still offers end-users access to nicotine and the familiar action of ‘smoking’. As a result of this, a growing number of companies now produce vaping devices and e-liquids.

However, manufacturers working in this industry are subject to rules and regulations surrounding packaging and the in-pack information issued to consumers. This is where our user information leaflets come in.

The importance of sustainability

At Technoprint, we believe that working towards a more sustainable future is in the best interest of everyone. Both locally and globally, the environment must be cared for, and we are passionate about conducting our business in the most ethical way possible.

Community matters – how Technoprint gets involved

 

At Technoprint, we consider ourselves active participants of the Winsford community, and like to get involved in as many ways as we can. From providing apprenticeships to supporting local charities, it’s always been important to us to give back. As we have been fortunate enough to ride through the pandemic without much disruption, we want to give as much as possible to societies, charities and sports teams in need of a little extra support.

Creating innovative bespoke solutions for R&D companies

Here at Technoprint, we are lucky enough to work with a range of different clients across a spectrum of specialisms within the pharmaceutical sector. This is largely down to the way we work with our clients.

We believe that the key to a successful client relationship with our clients is to get under the skin of their business and find out exactly how they operate. We carry out site visits to our clients,
