Johnston Press wins contract to print editions of Mail

Johnston Press logoRegional publisher Johnston Press has won a multi-million pound contract to print copies of the Daily Mail across the South West.

Monday to Saturday issues of Daily Mail will be printed at JP’s print plant in Portsmouth which adjoins the offices of city daily The News.

The five-year deal follows the decision by the Mail’s owner, Associated Newspapers to close its print site at Didcot.

JP had already won the contract to print southern editions of the Metro at Portsmouth.

Chief executive Ashley Highfield said: “We are delighted to win this new business on top of the Metro contract just recently won and this further confirms our printing services division as one of the best in the country.

“This latest long term contract will give the staff a real boost and their ability to deliver such prestigious titles against very tough competition is a great reflection on the business.”

Johnston Press also prints copies of the Daily/Sunday Express, the Daily/Sunday Star, The Guardian and Observer in Ireland, some Trinity Mirror regional titles and some Tindle Newspapers titles.

    Lots of people go on about falling standards on here, but I wish HTFP would save the oval JP logo a bit smaller to fit inside their picture box without cropping it!

    Nothing wrong with their printing usually. Just the poor quality often not very local content they are printing for their own papers. Still, this contract must be good news for JP workers.

    They do a great job in printing. Shame about the content of their own products.
