The Stationers’ Company has announced the winners of its Stationers’ Warrants, now in its fourth year.
Warrants are awarded to recognise and promote excellent products and service. The scheme was originally introduced by Past Master Helen Esmonde with the aim of returning to the Livery Company’s roots in recognising excellence in its multiple industries.
In the four years of its lifetime, the Stationers’ Warrants has witnessed the results of changing market places in the expansion from traditional products like pens and notebooks through to unique services which play a vital role in the industry.
Sammy Bartley, newly appointed chairman of the Warrants Committee commented: “This year has seen a huge interest from companies outside of the Stationers’ Company but who have a creditable status within the industries the Company represents.”
The committee met regularly to develop the scheme and to judge this year’s applications. They were delighted to award four new Warrants for 2019, all of whom come from the stationery sector:
The companies that have extended the warrant from previous years, where the judging panel saw further innovation and development of the products, are as follows:
Judging for the 2020 Stationers’ Warrants will start in March 2019.
