Chris Ashworth our quality, pre-press and IT guru is sadly leaving us after 8 years. Chris joined the printing industry straight from school as an apprentice back in 1996. He came to Technoprint to manage the studio at a time when we were a design-lead commercial printer. Technoprint is almost unrecognisable now with our feet planted firmly in pharmaceutical print on lightweight papers. Chris’s natural design skills were still put to good use once the company started to concentrate on PS9000 leaflet work, with him also playing a key role in our recent re-brand and accompanying exhibition stand and marketing materials. Chris was instrumental in the development of our PS9000 and ISO9001 quality management systems and also went on to introduce ISO14001 to the company. During his time with Technoprint Chris has achieved a BA(Hons) in Business Management and has just finished his MSc in Quality Management.
So now he is moving on to concentrate fully on Quality within Medical Devices and we can’t pretend he won’t be missed. However! – We will have exciting news soon about two new appointments to the company.
Our MD Alan has worked closely with Chris from the outset. “Chris has been instrumental in the successful process of change that Technoprint has undergone in the eight years that he has been with us. Without his positive attitude, and ability to adapt, Technoprint would not have achieved the success it has. Therefore I will always be very grateful for the work he has done for us. Chris has gained a wealth of experience and knowledge during his time which is much to his credit. He will be missed but typically has been working hard over the last few weeks to ensure we have suitable replacements that cater for the future requirements of Technoprint. I wish Chris all the very best for his future professional career knowing that he will succeed in whatever he sets his mind to. On a personal level I also wish Chris, his wife Cindy and daughter Summer all the very best for the future.”
So good luck Chris! Let’s just hope your new colleagues don’t need more than one cup of tea a month…..
