Card company hires again
A PLASTIC card manufacturer has appointed its second new employee in three months as part of its growth strategy.
Plastic Card Services (PCS), based at Tytherington Business Park, has taken on Shaune Morris as a litho printer.
‘Litho’ printing is where the image is fixed on a stone or metal plate.
After training as an apprentice printer, Shaune went on to do something quite different after the company he worked for went into liquidation – he sold exotic reptiles.
But after spotting the job at PCS, he decided to go back into printing while keeping his reptile interest as a hobby.
Andy Simpson, operations director at PCS said: “It’s great to have Shaune on-board as our new litho printer.
“We strongly believe it’s the people who work for us who make us so successful, and it’s great to employ somebody who genuinely wants to work in the printing industry.”
Shaune said: “It’s great to get back into the world of print.
“PCS have a great reputation in the industry and I’m looking forward to a long career here.”
PCS employs 54 people from its manufacturing plant and is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of plastic cards and associated services, producing more than 50 million cards per year.
The company is also one of the first card manufacturers in Europe to use environmentally friendly materials.
