Parkside’s safety and health approach gets gold

| May 3, 2013

Parkside Flexibles’ approach to occupational safety and health has been recognized by the U.K. Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

RoSPA will present the company with its 2013 Gold Occupational Health and Safety Award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on May 14.

Dating back 57 years, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running program of its kind in the United Kingdom. It recognizes commitment to accident and ill-health prevention and is open to businesses and organizations of all types and sizes from across the U.K. and overseas. The scheme not only looks at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

“RoSPA firmly believes that organizations that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention deserve recognition,” said David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager. “Parkside Flexibles (Europe) Ltd. has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honor it through the presentation of an award.”

“It is an honor to be presented with such an award,” said Robert Adamson, operations director at Parkside. “Our team in Normaton work tirelessly to ensure health and safety is our number one priority and this award is a great recognition of their achievements.”

A flexographic printer and specialized laminating company, Parkside has been supplying packaging solutions to the tobacco industry for more than 40 years.

Parkside celebrates three years in Malaysia

| March 6, 2013

Parkside Flexibles is celebrating the three-year anniversary of its manufacturing facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The plant—the company’s first outside of the United Kingdom—was opened in March 2010 by the Malaysian deputy minister of international trade and industry, Dato Mukriz Matathir.

The facility has enabled Parkside to shorten lead times and improve service levels for customers in the Asia-Pacific region.

Already, Parkside is looking to replicate its Malaysian model elsewhere. “Our success in Malaysia has given us the perfect blue print to open new facilities worldwide,” says Development Director Chris Kozlik.

Further investment is being considered for the Kuala Lumpur plant later this year.
