Wyndeham Press Group has unveiled a new management board following its acquisition by Walstead Investments and announced a press upgrade at its Basingstoke-based subsidiary Wyndeham Impact.
In addition to chief executive Paul Utting, chairman Kevin Lyon and group finance director Lawrence Coppock, Wyndeham's new management team consists of David Emeny, Barry Fitzpatrick, Ian Mackintosh and Ian Tarry.
The four new board appointees will retain their existing responsibilities as the managing directors of Wyndeham Heron, Wyndeham Pre-Press and Masterpiece, Wyndeham Print Direct, and Wyndeham Impact respectively.
In addition, Emeny will be responsible for the group's sales and business development, Fitzpatrick for group technical development, Mackintosh for implementing continuous improvement and lean manufacturing within the group, and Tarry for group restructuring activity.
Utting said: "These managing directors have specialist skills and extensive experience which are relevant in a wider group context and not just at site level.
"In the current economic environment it is important to use existing skills in the business as broadly as possible and this new board will provide the best platform to improve the prospects of the group."
The new management team will report to the board of Walstead Investments, which consists of Richard Fookes, Stephen Hargrave, Mark Scanlon, Paul Utting and Kevin Lyon.
Meanwhile, Wyndeham Impact announced that it has invested in a third UV varnishing unit, which will be added to its Heidelberg 8pp six-colour Mini-Web.
The investment means that Impact's 8pp, 12pp and 16pp presses are now all equipped to print up to six colours both sides, with UV varnishing, inline and sheeting capabilities.
Wyndeham said this would give Impact the ability to produce magazine and brochure covers, special one-off supplements and general commercial work, including spine gluing.
Wyndeham Impact managing director Ian Tarry said: "The press upgrading programme will further boost capacity and contingency at key production times.
"It also enhances our capability to produce six-colour commercial work across all three presses, something our customers increasingly demand."
Wyndeham Press Group was sold to Walstead Investments in December last year.
