Gold gong for printer

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

Ri­gen Arya says it was one of the proud­est mo­ments in his work­ing ca­reer.

The printer at Cry­ovac Sealed Air fac­tory in Els­don helped mas­ter­mind the com­pany, tak­ing home a gold gong at the re­cent black-tie Pride in Print awards at TSB Arena. It recog­nised ex­cel­lence in print­ing, from news­pa­pers, busi­ness, dis­play and pack­ag­ing.

Mr Arya, work­ing with clients Farm­land Foods, de­signed a la­bel for their mut­ton ham, which won high praise from the judges. The la­bel’s reg­is­tra­tion is clear, colour­ful and fits per­fectly with what their client en­vis­aged, says plant man­ager Steve Lo­gan.

‘‘ These awards do cel­e­brate tech­ni­cal ex­cel­lence across the whole print­ing in­dus­try, so it’s great that we can get recog­nised for this. Ri­gen de­serves a lot of credit but there is a great team here, from the peo­ple who make the plates, to the print­ers, that do such a good job. Some of the com­pa­nies that were there [at Pride in Print] had mul­ti­ple en­tries, while we had two. We have our own stan­dards about what we put for­ward, and this la­bel was top notch.’’

Cry­ovac Sealed Air pre­vi­ously won a gold in 2005 and has had ‘‘highly com­mended’’ ef­forts since.

‘‘It was a push from man­age­ment [to en­ter the awards], it was about in­still­ing that pride in your work, and I think we’re see­ing the ben­e­fits.’’

Mr Arya says the Farm­land Foods la­bel is likely to at­tract

‘‘I’m re­ally happy with how it came out and Farm­land were re­ally stoked. I’ve been do­ing this [print­ing] for nine years, this is the proud­est mo­ment. It’s great for the com­pany.’’
