A WORCESTERSHIRE print management has been shortlisted for a prestigious trade award.

Droitwich-based Print Strategy Europe (PSE) is in the running to win a Telegraph Trade Award 2018.

The firm has been shortlisted in The Best New Entrant into International Markets, following a successful application.

Paul Newton, director at PSE, said: “We entered the award because we’ve experienced huge growth in the past two years expanding into Europe; to be recognised by such a prestigious organisation is a great honour and we are thrilled to have been shortlisted.”

The award recognises the efforts of small to medium firms that have successfully exported into new international markets within the last financial year.

PSE has had a busy few years entering into a long term contract with HelloFresh, ranked first in a list of Europe’s fastest growing companies according to The Financial Times and between 2012 and 2015 the company saw its revenue increase by an impressive 13,159 per cent during that period.

The print company also provides services to German luxury holiday travel club Secret Escapes as well as providing offline marketing services to companies in France, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg and Portugal.

Mr Newton added: “We are absolutely delighted to have been recognised by The Telegraph Trade Awards in this way.

"Our international growth is more than 600 per cent on last year which is fabulous news. It has increased our growth aspirations as we now know that we have a much bigger international market to target which has a genuine appetite for our products and services.”

The winners of the awards will be unveiled on Thursday, November 1 at The Telegraph Trade Awards ceremony in London.

Print Strategy Europe was originally founded in 1995 by brothers Rob and Phil Newton, who were later joined by younger brother Paul.
