YM Group Secures Long Term Reach Contract
Reach plc and YM Group have signed a long-term contract for the production of two weekly magazines, We Love TV, for the Saturday edition of the Daily Mirror and Notebook for the Sunday Mirror.
As part of this deal, Reach plc has extended the YM Group’s term for production of the two Express Newspaper titles, Daily Express Saturday Magazine and S Magazine for the Sunday Express.
Both Mirror titles are printed and stitched in-line on short grain press production at YM Group’s York Mailing site. The first were produced for issues dated 9 and 10 March.
Graham Poulett, Production and Distribution Director at Reach plc said, ‘We are very impressed by the service provided and professional approach of the team at YM Group and we are looking forward to working together in this new phase of our partnership.’
James Povey, Group Publications Director at YM Group says ‘This is really excellent news for YM Group. Having produced the two weekly magazines for Express Newspapers on our short grain press at YM Chantry for approaching two years, we are delighted to have extended our relationship further with Reach plc by winning these two Mirror magazines.’
‘The specifications of these titles play to our strengths and we really appreciate that Reach plc has entrusted us with them,’ says Stephen Goodman, YM Group CEO, ‘No other web offset printer in the UK is able to match our efficient usage of paper across such a variety of formats –a critical element in the decision-making process for any client in the current climate.’
