Plastic card manufacturer, Plastic Card Services (PCS), has made three new appointments in its business, administration and printing divisions following a 31 per cent increase in its year-to-date turnover.

The recruits follow several new wins for the company, including Wyevale Garden Centre, Gourmet Society and Danish company, Matas, all of which total more than £4.5m in revenue.

Recent Philosophy, Politics and Economics graduate, Rob Scovell, who previously worked at communications agency Fishburn, joins PCS as a data administrator. Rob will be working alongside newly recruited Macclesfield College student, Shannon Duncalf, who is joining the team as a business administration apprentice.

Completing the trio of recruits, Carl Rhodes joins the Macclesfield-based company as a lithographic printer. Carl has a wealth of printing and production experience, having worked in the likes of Pillans & Waddies, Walkers Instore and most recently St Ives Direct.

PCS is further demonstrating its commitment in developing the skills of their staff by offering a range of training programmes, covering areas such as business telephone selling, negotiation skills and presentation skills, all of which are endorsed by the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management (ISMM).

Rob Nicholls, managing director of PCS, said: “Following several big business wins and exceptional year-to-date growth, it’s most definitely the best time to be investing in our team and ensuring we are adding new talent to each area.

“We pride ourselves in developing new talent and recruiting experienced people, so we’re looking forward to welcoming new faces to the team and making the most of the skills they will bring.”

PCS has also reinvested profit back into the business with several new pieces of equipment, which has led it to double its thermal printing capacity. Among the investments is a brand new Kirk Rudy inkjet line, allowing the company to attach personalised cards and print corresponding details on to stationery in-line.
