Invitation to tender - print and distribution services

We are inviting local companies to tender for the provision of print and distribution services for Northwards Housing.

Communication is very important to us and we are continually looking at new and innovative ways of engaging with our customers.

Often print and distribution is our most effective way of getting important messages out to large groups of people. However, it is also the most costly.

In order to meet our obligations to our customers and ensure we deliver good value for money, we are looking for a local printing company who can help us deliver high on-demand quality printed materials and an ad-hoc distribution service for the best price.

The appointment will be for an initial period of three years, with a possible two-year extension.
