Meet The Team

David Thurrold

Managing Director

Dave has been with the company since 1983 and has vast experience in estimating, finance and production. During that time there isn’t much that Dave hasn’t seen and his razor-sharp memory means he can quickly find solutions to problems from jobs we did way back in the 80’s and 90’s.   Dave spends his weekends helping out with a local Under 12’s football team in which his son plays.

Kevin Lee

Production Director

Kevin has been with us for 4 years since moving into the area from the Midlands and has brought 30 years of production experience to us from the newspaper industry. His many changes have made us more efficient, better organised and better equipped for the challenges the modern print world throws at us. Kevin is keen biker and spends most weekends tearing up the tarmac on the leafy lanes of northern England.

Jon Sherlock

Sales Director

Jon has been involved in the company on and off for around 30 years both as an employee and a customer, and now looks after the sales and marketing department.

Jon is a keen sportsman and defies his age by regularly playing squash, tennis, 5-a-side football and golf.

Paula Handby


Paula joined the company thirteen years ago initially as our internal sales executive. This role has expanded to such an extent that Paula is now heavily involved in sales, marketing and customer services, and is that vital link between sales and production. Paula is a Manchester City season ticket holder – who at the moment is riding on the crest of a wave!

Joanne Canniford


Joanne is another ‘lifer’ having been with us for over 25 years. She runs the Sage accounts system, pays the bills and collects the money…she has all the necessary skills for this! Joanne is a keen walker and another Manchester City fan.

Mary Owens

Reception & Administration

Mary has been running the switchboard for the last ten years and is the first point of contact for all callers. She also provides valuable administration support for both our Tharstern Management System and Sage. Mary enjoys cruising and dancing.
