We are one of the industry's leading manufacturers of promotional merchandise, manufacturing more than 70% of everything it sells in its King's Lynn based Innovation Centre.
Listawood are committed to offering their customers the best possible combination of quality, customer service, delivery time and price across their UK manufactured lines. This has lead to significant investments in state of the art technology and employee development to run them – including highly automated production lines for fridge magnets and mouse mats, the most technologically advanced offset litho presses and a custom built robotic spray facility for ceramics. Investments are intrinsically linked to the delivery of customer value, helping deliver industry leading turnaround, flexibility (through process control) and in some cases even price points normally associated with sourcing directly from factories in China.
Listawood has won six Supplier of the Year awards this year, these are; BPMA Supplier of the Year, Sourcing City Supplier of the Year, Promota Gold Supplier of the Year, Advantage Group Supplier of the Year, EnVoy Supplier of the Year and IBG Supplier of the year. All of these awards are voted for by members.
Listawood was also the first company to win the Castle Award for equality in 2002; the first ever award given out by the DTi to recognise employers' efforts to promote equal pay & opportunities in the workplace.
Listawood is part of a core leadership group working with Carers UK the group lobbies Government and offers advice for employers seeking to support the one in every seven members of the UK workforce who are also carers. Other organisations involved in the group are BT, Unum Provident and PricewaterhouseCoopers. The group engages in the debate on care and support services, recognising that, even when employers offer support to working carers, what makes the greatest difference is improving their ability to juggle paid work with caring responsibilities.
Where Far East suppliers are used, their factories are thoroughly audited for ethical manufacturing practices and product quality before any orders are placed and on an ongoing basis thereafter.
Listawood has been accredited to BS EN ISO 9001 for its quality systems, BS EN ISO14001 in recognition of its environmental practices and OHAS18001 for good Health and Safety practice.
