Printing Specialist Commends Manager For 25 Years Of Service
TALL Security Print, part of The TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, has celebrated the achievements of a long-serving employee who has risen through the ranks during 25 years of service. Ed Starkey was presented with a certificate and vouchers in a special ceremony to mark a quarter of century at the company.
Ed joined TALL Security Print in 1992 as a Small Offset Printer, where he supervised a single-colour printing press. A number of promotions followed over the years, which involved Ed managing a range of larger machinery, including the multi-colour continuous web presses. During his time at TALL Security Print, Ed has also carried out duties in every area of production including Finishing and Dispatch. He currently fulfills the role of Print Manager with a responsibility to oversee the smooth running of day-to-day operations, whilst managing 13 staff.
The Runcorn office holds special memories for 45-year-old Ed from both a professional and personal perspective, as it was where he met his wife Lorna, who works in the commercial department.
Ed, who lives in Widnes, said: “I left school on the Friday and started work on the Monday morning, and I haven’t looked back. My attitude to hard work and my commitment to continuously improve has stood me in good stead over the years. I have enjoyed my time at TALL Security Print immensely, it is a fantastic company to work for, and I have always been given the opportunity to progress and take on new challenges along the way. Print production has been my life, and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my career at TALL Security Print.”
Martin Ruda, Managing Director of The TALL Group of Companies, said: “For a quarter of a century Ed has played a key role in our ability to constantly provide high levels of service to our customers. His positive attitude and dedication over the past 25 years has set an example to his colleagues. On behalf of myself, and my fellow directors, I would like to express my appreciation and I’m sure he will play a key role in our future success.”
