AcornDigital wins award for start up business

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Acorn Digital Inks on Victoria Street, Accrington who have won awards for their start business developing and manufacturing high quality labeling inks for bottles or cans such as date stamps, or batch stamp.

Within six months of setting up they are already winning export contracts as far away as China and gaining a reputation for innovation and quality.

Myself, Chris Raynor and staff at Acorn Digital

I recently supported Emerson and Renwick in their efforts to clear red tape and gain a level playing field in export contracts and this week I have been to major employer, Senator International.

Promoting growth and employment has to be any MP's top priority. I have written to the Council to try and develop a more joined up approach helping businesses in Haslingden and Hyndburn.

Chris Rayner co-owner:

"Acorn Digital an Accrington inkjet company with global ambitions were delighted to welcome local MP Graham Jones to their HQ and manufacturing facility based in Accrington.

We are a company looking to expand through export and are proud to be in Accrington. We have been helped significantly by the East Lancs Chamber of Commerce and in particular Steff Haywood who has helped us greatly through our rapid growth.

Our mission is to expand rapidly and to employ and train Accrington people where possible. We also want to make Accrington world famous for high quality inkjet ink and not just a famous 80s milk commercial".
