Nationwide Print in St Austell has expanded its team of talented print specialists with the addition of four new recruits – each bringing valuable expertise to the ambitious firm.
The award-winning SME has made the series of appointments in order to increase capacity, while continuing to achieve the highest standards in pre-print, production and finishing for clients including St Austell Brewery, The Eden Project, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall and Armani.
Managing Director Julian Hocking commented: “We are very pleased to welcome new recruits Andrew, Matthew, Dean and Nigel to the team here at Nationwide Print. Remaining at the cutting-edge of the print industry requires investing in highly trained and skilled staff, as well as in new technology, in order to deliver great results for our customers.”
Andrew Mole is a print finishing specialist who previously worked at Francis Anthony Ltd; Andrew is tasked with stitching line, laminating and die cutting in order to finish printing tasks to the highest standard.
Another new recruit, Matthew Pascoe, is following in the footsteps of his father; Mike Pascoe is Nationwide Print’s Production Manager, and has been at the firm for 5 years.
Matthew joins him in the production department, and is also working on developing Nationwide’s new software: MarcomCentral offers print service providers a complete online Marketing Asset Management solution for delivering complex cross-media campaigns.
Meanwhile, estimating is being overseen by newly appointed Estimating Manager, Nigel Williamson, who joins Nationwide Print after previous roles at two other local printers – Deltor and Four Way.
Finally, Nationwide’s pre-press and digital departments have been strengthened with the edition of Dean Taylor from St Ives Printing and Publishing, who will help the firm keep pace in this rapidly growing area of print technology.
Julian said: “Employing skilled local people – and adding to that pool of skills through training and development opportunities – is central to our philosophy here at Nationwide Print. We hope to continue to grow the workforce for many years to come.”
Nationwide Print gained national recognition in 2014, when the company won SME Print Company of the Year at the PrintWeek awards – the most important set of accolades in this dynamic sector.
Since then Julian, who has been at the helm since 1998, has continued to invest in new equipment and staff training in order to remain an industry leader – most recently purchasing new digital and large format printing presses and laminators to add to the armoury at Nationwide Print.
