Card com­pany hires again

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

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.
