Great things can be achieved

A fantastic news story acknowledging that when three Organisations work in harmony together, great things can be achieved.

Essex Adult Community Learning Team (the Client), CDS (the Essex County Council contracted Print Manager) and Ancient House Press (the Print Supplier) have between them, generated a quality product in the COURSE GUIDE, the largest product produced annually by Essex and managed by the CDS Team based at County Hall. The finished guide is distributed throughout Essex.

The CDS Team were keen to procure as locally as possible whilst focused on providing a cost efficient solution. After approaching the market via the CDS’ ‘Approved Suppliers’ the team chose Ancient House Press, a Print Supplier with whom CDS have worked with across many years.

Given all the current press about increases in paper and materials, it’s good to know that CDS were able to generate a significant saving for the Client based on the previous year’s requirement.

CDS is currently under contract to Essex County Council via a CCS Framework. If you would like any further information on the print frameworks offered by CCS check out:
