Behind the Teams with Dave Bradley
In this month’s edition of our ‘Behind the Teams’ series, we spoke to Dave Bradley.
Dave is a member of our Print team, working as a Finishing Team Leader.
We chatted to Dave to find out a little more about his role at Springfield and how it has evolved over the years!
Tell us about your role and your history at Springfield!
I started working at Springfield over 20 years ago now, starting as a labourer. Having never been in a factory environment before, it was a bit of a shock!
After around a year in my role as a labourer sweeping floors and emptying bins, I progressed up to working in the print department as a rewinder/print finisher.
A couple of years later, I began working in the newly created sheet area operating a multitude of machines including the Heidelberg Cylinder (pictured above).
I was then asked to become a Team Leader of the finishing department, which is my current role. I work with a great team who smash it every week!!
Walk us through a typical day in your role!
My typical day to day in my role as a Finishing Team Leader involves:
- Looking after the rewind schedule
- Making sure the right job fits the right machine
- Keeping up to date with all sheet work that comes through
