This externally assessed certification demonstrates the company’s commitment in having an environmental policy and management system that meets regulatory conformance.
This certification gives added benefits to the customer
Requested by many customers, FSC certification ensures that paper products come from well managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. Chain of custody certification applies to manufacturers, processors and traders of FSC certified forest products. It verifies FSC certified forest products along the production chain. At each stage in the chain of processing and transformation, chain of custody certification is needed to confirm that FSC certified wood products are kept separate from uncertified products, or mixed in approved ways.
Put simply, it is where the average carbon impact for paper production has been balanced, or offset, by the World Land Trust – an international conservation charity – through the preservation of high conservation forests, saving threatened habitats and their biodiversity. Sir David Attenborough OM, CH, FRS is among its Patrons. Healeys are a certified carbon-balanced printer and carbon offset calculations/achievements can be provide to customers for individual print projects or for total orders over a defined period. Certificates are printed and presented in recognition of carbon balancing.
This scheme offers customers the opportunity to capture the CO2 emissions from paper used for their literature by planting native woodland, right here in the UK.
The company has grown significantly since its humble beginnings. Healey’s was originally a small, family business which was purchased by the current MD’s father in 1962. The company back then comprised of a Post Office, stationery business and one broken duplicator. During this time, growth was steady, however the ambitions weren’t the same as today.
A major time for the business was in 1971, when the current MD, Philip Dodd, joined the company after working for 3 years at Marks and Spencer. Philip was committed to developing the business and was, and still is, an early adopter of new technology and printing services, which rapidly grew in the forthcoming years.
After the unfortunate death of his father, Philip took over the company in 1981, with the business now gaining a reputation as one of the leading commercial printers in the region. By 1992, the company had evolved and moved into a new factory which boasted the company’s first four colour press and was later the site of the world’s first B3 8 Colour Perfector and the first Anicolor Press in the UK. During this period, Philip also took the decision to sell the Post Office and stationery side of the business to concentrate efforts on Litho’ and digital print.
Following further growth, in 2001 a new factory was purchased, which we still operate from today. In more recent years, we have seen huge growth, and sales of print are now more in a day than during our entire first years of trading. We also employ 37 highly skilled employees who work together to deliver an exceptional range of commercial print services.
As a business, we are committed to continue to provide a marketing-orientated service and an extensive range of litho, digital and wide format print services to companies, NGO’s, individuals and educational establishments both in the UK and internationally.
