    Paul Tomlin

    Director

    Paul co-founded Kingfisher Press in 1991, and has overseen the company's growth into a mature, dynamic and successful print company. Recognising that staff are the key to the success of any business, he defines his role as team manager rather than boss and runs the company accordingly.

    A great champion of customer service, Paul ensures this principle is applied to all aspects of the business, saying 'Everybody here understands that our clients are everything and everyone is prepared, and wants, to go that extra mile every day'.

    Director

    Jon joined Kingfisher Press in 1992 as a machine minder and became co-director in 2003. He splits his time between running the litho and digital presses and managing the factory floor - giving Kingfisher Press the edge when it comes to production planning and management. 'With Paul in the office, the two most important areas of the business are overseen by a director at all times and that ensures continuity of service. If there is an issue with a job no matter how small - we know in a moment and can resolve it immediately.'

    'That close partnership between directors and staff also means we can't help but be a friendly, approachable and honest company - probably why we enjoy such loyalty from our customers.'

    Production Manager

    Graham has worked in print for over 30 years, so when we say we know what we are talking about, we really do have a wealth of experience here at Kingfisher!

    Beginning as a machine minder, Graham has a full understanding of the physical process of printing.

    Having spent 15 years running presses Graham moved into the role of production manager. Now, 15 years later and Graham is responsible for the production of all print at Kingfisher Press.

    Managing projects on a daily basis is hectic and with 4 printing machines and over 7 different in-house finishing departments plus deliveries, it’s no easy task.

    Providing a smooth transition from booking-in through to delivering to clients, it all falls to Graham to ensure everything is on track at all times.

    Richard Stiff

    Studio Manager

    Having served as our Production Manager since 2001, Richard took on a new role in February 2014 to utilise his hands on experience in reprographics and digital print. Now acting as Studio Manager, his new title doesn’t give much clue to the broadness of his remit.

    Richard has responsibility not only for the “traditional” reprographics side of the business, but also the digital departments. Where necessary his hands on approach continues, not just in the studio but also small and large format digital print, be it our Xerox 8080 digital press or our Jetrix and Mimaki wide format machines.

    One of his key aims is to make sure his colleagues can perform their roles untroubled by the small but necessary distractions that might previously have disrupted their working days.

    “It’s important for me to take care of the details – getting everything in place so my colleagues don’t have to. They can all then concentrate on what they do best. Some things in isolation might seem insignificant, but when you add lots of little things together you realise there are significant gains to be made by taking care of them, both in terms of efficiency and productivity”.
