December 16, 2013 (TORONTO) – Navtech Inc., a leader in flight operations software and services, is pleased to announce their choice for a new printing vendor.  Slough-based PRINT.UK.COM is recognized as an innovator in traditional and digital print technologies with a powerful problem solving attitude. They have been contracted to print and deliver documentation updates for Navtech Charts customers including maps, flight paths, navigational charts, and aerodromes. Navtech supports many of its customers with a paperless cockpit solution, but some are also required to have printed charts documentation onboard as a back-up to their electronic solution.  And, some customers have not transitioned to the electronic solution. Therefore, the quality and guaranteed delivery of PRINT.UK.COM’s services is vital for all Navtech Charts customers.

This partnership will see PRINT.UK.COM significantly increasing its output, producing volumes of over 50 million documents every year, all of which must reach the flight decks within a strict time-frame. In order to fulfill the contract with Navtech, PRINT UK has invested in new software to accommodate data updates, installed new Xerox printing equipment, and has acquired additional staff. PRINT UK has also reconfigured their warehouse to create a  dedicated area for Navtech’s output and fulfillment.

“This is a very exciting contract for us at PRINT.UK.COM and we are looking forward to working with Navtech to deliver this vital function for its customers,” said Jon Marsh, PRINT.UK.COM Managing Director. “Over the last six months, we have been preparing for this contract, effectively doubling our capacity in order to facilitate the volumes this contract requires, and streamlining our logistics operations.  We are confident of our capabilities and are relishing the opportunity of working with a leading player in the aeronautical industry.”

“We are pleased to enter into this new agreement with,” said Robert Kernahan, VP Charts and Navigation Data Production & GM UK for Navtech. “They are a very reputable firm and the cost savings we will recognize will continue through to our customers.  Our teams have experienced a smooth transition internally and we expect the same for our customer deliveries, along with improved output quality.”
