John Moylan retires after 40 years in Print Industry
Fri May 10, 2019
The printing industry saw a true gentleman, John Moylan retire recently after spending 40 years working in the industry in Ireland and 5 years at Anglo Printers. I was interested to find out a little about John's career in the printing industry and what plans he has for his retirement.
"I started working in Anglo Printers on March 18th 2014 as an Account Executive. Before that I was with Colour World for 2 years, previous to that I worked in Euroscreen which became DCK Ebrook, I was there from 1985 until 2011. I have been in the printing industry for 48 years and worked in advertising agencies for 12 of those years."
What changes have you seen in printing over the years?
"Print management companies are now running the show in the printing industry. The speed of turnaround has increased dramatically. Years ago, the plates for a four-colour process job had to be ordered from the UK which took 2 weeks, now a four-colour job is instant. Advertising agencies bought all the print in the past."
What are your plans for retirement?
"I am going to travel, play golf and do voluntary work for charities. My wife Marian and I are planning a big trip. We are hoping to visit Vietnam, Cambodia and China. I have always wanted to visit Vietnam and would like to see the Killing Fields in Cambodia. I am looking forward to spending more time with my grandchild, Ines."
"I enjoyed my five years at Anglo Printers. Anglo has grown at a very speedy rate and long may it continue." said John.
"John Moylan has been a true stalwart of the Irish Print Industry, a really knowledgeable guy, with a huge heart. He will be sorely missed by all at Anglo Printers, and by his many lifelong friends in the industry. We wish him and Marian every happiness in the future and many successful days on the golf course!", Padraic Kierans, Managing Director, Anglo Printers.
