Teesside print and marketing agency expands workforce ahead of busy period
A Teesside print and marketing agency has boosted its staff numbers ahead of its “busiest” time of the year.
AlphaGraphics, which is based in Stockton, has taken on around 20 temporary roles across the business, including image editors, and scanner and production operators, along with four permanent roles.
Two of the four permanent roles are office-based, with Christian Oxley hired as finance manager, following the retirement of the previous post-holder. Colin Moore has also been hired as IT manager, to support the firm’s customer experience and workflow automation goals.
Managing director, Andrew Dalton commented: “September, October and November are our busiest months of the year, so we needed temporary staff to hit production volumes and timescales.
“What’s more, these four new permanent hires mean that we will be able to provide a better service to our clients by being more efficient and, in terms of ISO, compliant with standards.
“Technology is now at the core of our business. Last year we established our new eCommerce division – with revenues in excess of £1.5m in less than 12 months.”
Andrew concluded: “All this forms part of AlphaGraphics’ vision for the future, allowing us to fully grasp opportunities, and supporting our wider vision to deliver the very best customer experience in our industry.”
Founded in 1993 to offer printing, display and mailing services, AlphaGraphics diversified over the course of the pandemic, launching an e-commerce platform selling tailored social distancing signs to commercial and corporate clients.
