A Cambridge company is saying farewell and thank you to one of its longest-serving members of staff who is retiring after 40 years.
Domino says thank you as member of staff retires after 40 years’ service
Kenn Martin is leaving Domino Printing after working in a variety of roles, ranging from a Service Engineer to his last position as Senior Software Engineer.
He joined the company in September 1981 – along with 13 others – and recalls that in the first month four ink jet printers were produced and installed. As Test, Installation and Service Engineer his work was very varied, often involving impromptu European travel, going there and back in a day to service customers’ machines.
Kenn then moved from Service to Software Development, with responsibility for writing software to make the printer more user friendly, incorporating features gained from his experience installing machines.
He later set-up the first email server in Domino and when it was installed on people’s PCs, the usual response was ‘Why do we need that, we have the orange internal circulation envelopes?’ His last role was in Management Information Systems.
Kenn says: “How things have changed during my time with the company! Over the years, Domino has been like an extended family to me, and I will miss everyone in my retirement. Although most of us have been working from home there has always been a warm welcome whenever I have been into the office.”
Robert Pulford, CEO added: “We wish Kenn a long and happy retirement and thank him for his loyal service with us. During his time here he has seen so many changes as the business has developed and diversified and as with other long-serving members of staff, we are extremely grateful for his valuable input on our journey.”
Domino is proud to have an excellent record of long-serving employees, with 76 across the Group achieving more than 30 years’ service. This includes two members of its Executive Team and three General Managers in the UK, France and Singapore.
Founded in 1978, Domino Printing Sciences plc, has established a global reputation for the continual development and manufacture of its total coding and printing technologies that meet the needs of manufacturers and sets new industry standards in quality and reliability.
