Three Million Minutes Service

In August Simon Buck became the third member of the Printoff team to reach twenty five years service. Initially however Simon, a key part of the company’s finishing department, was uncertain that this was an achievement at all, that twenty five years was not really a long time!

At our recent quarterly staff meeting reluctant hero Simon was confronted with the statistical reality of his time here at Printoff. He has worked 50,000 hours, 3 million minutes or 180 million seconds. It was queried at this point how many sheets of paper he has trimmed in this time and what proportion of these were cut straight! Faced with this evidence Simon conceded that twenty five years was a long time after all and was presented with a gift voucher and an additional weeks paid holiday.
