Welcome To HARGREAVES PROMOTIONS : Meet Our Team
Artwork & Print Manager Extraordinaire
I started working at Hargreaves straight from school in 1989 on a YTS scheme as a Silk Screen Printer, on the then one machine, that consisted of 1 station & 4 manual heads. Attended courses to learn different techniques & colour mixing along with college, where I gained a BTEC in Graphic Communications. I was moved onto the new 6 colour, 6 station machine when it arrived. After 9 years I moved around the company from Despatch & Warehouse to finally rest in the Art Studio where I produced artwork ready for printing & embroidery along with producing vinyl cut transfers for application.
I also produced marketing literature for leaflets, catalogues, emails etc then onto helping set up & updating the company website.
Since the arrival of our fully automatic, six colour, ten station, printing machine, I have worked with and assisted a trainee to pass his NVQ and now oversee the day to day running of the machine, as well dealing with quotes and producing artwork. A full on role which is exciting, as every day is always different.
I am proud to have played my part in the development of this side of the business and adding value and service to our clients.
Being head of sales it is my responsibility is to ensure that the start to finish ordering process is as seamless as possible. My small but very experienced team are on hand to guide and advise with product selection, lead times and logo design.
Having well established links to the military stretching back several decades, we continue to build on our enviable reputation as a competitive and reliable supplier to our armed forces all over the world.
Me? Well I come from a workwear background and I’m keen to grow this side of our business both locally and nationally. Offering many of the UK’s leading brands we are a truly a “one stop shop” for all your workwear requirements.
Our School wear business has got more and more competitive over the years, however I do feel we offer a value for money service via our school shop. In 2016 we will be looking to meet more local schools to demonstrate how we can be service.
Thanks for reading, we look forward to being of service
