Domino marks 40th anniversary
Celebrating four decades of manufacturing printing and coding solutions, Domino Printing Sciences recently hosted an event at its UK headquarters in Cambridge at which staff were thanked and awarded for their contribution to the company’s development over the years.
Domino staff were joined by the company’s founder, Graeme Minto, as VIP guest. Forty years ago, Minto was the project leader responsible for researching multijet printing at Cambridge Consultants. He recognised the potential of a single continuous inkjet application and developed a prototype which was shown at the international packaging show, Interpack in 1978.
Speaking at the event, Nigel Bond, Domino CEO, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating our 40th Anniversary with a special event for staff who have all made a valuable contribution to our success and enabled us to reach this important milestone.”
Employing approximately 2,700 people worldwide, Domino has manufacturing facilities in China, Germany, India, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA and sells to over 120 countries through a global network of 25 subsidiary offices and more than 200 distributors.
“People are a company’s greatest asset,” continued Bond. “We believe that we have such high levels of staff retention because we recognise achievement, reward performance and provide training, support and encouragement for them to progress within the business. Hopefully by creating a motivational and aspirational workplace environment, we encourage our staff to ‘Do more’ for our customers.”
Today, 67 members of Domino’s staff at its UK HQ in Cambridge have completed over 25 years’ service, four over 35 years, 19 over 30 years and 44 over 25 years.
Bond concluded: “We now have almost 850 employees at our headquarters in Bar Hill and we are extremely proud that 43% have worked for Domino for more than ten years, and 15% for over 20 years.
“We recognise the importance of having a shared corporate vision and values, whereby every member of staff is made aware that they each have an important role to play in helping us achieve our corporate goals.”
