What is your role at Anglo Printers and what does it involve?
My current role within Anglo Printers is as Production Manager. This involves planning for the day to day running of the factory and liaising with Reps and Customers. I also have my own customers who I look after for their printing needs.
How did you first learn about the company?
My father worked with Anglo Printers for 28 years so we were always aware of the company growing up.
How has the company changed since?
When I first started in Anglo Printers it was a laid-back factory with a very small team. We worked 9am to 5pm only and everyone had their tea together from a large pot which had 7 teabags in it. Now its 24hrs and everything moves at 100 mph, with technology playing a huge part in that progress.
