Michael, our Printer apprentice, is a real success story and was featured in The Times newspaper. He joined us from school and showed potential in the print area and after succeeding in securing Manchester College as a training provider, Michael went from strength to strength. He has grown into a mature young man and regularly provides some interesting ideas to move the company forward.
