Next in line for long standing employees is our full time offset printer Johannes (or Johan for short). Johan has been with us since 2008 so in Feb next year he will have reached a milestone of 10 whole years with JOP!
Coming on board all those years ago as an offset printer apprentice, he learnt his trade well, passed his apprenticeship and over the last 10 years has honed his skills to a fine art. Gaining a silver placing for printing, in the 2010 World Skills NZ - National Finals, no less!
Johan now takes on more and more of the tricky print jobs with Dean overseeing, he certainly is a huge asset to the continued success of JOP. Securing our hold as the biggest and best print houses in Northland.
Its no secret what Johan’s absolute favorite thing of all time is to do in his spare time - FISHING! It doesn’t matter what type of fishing, if it involves a rod, bait and water he is amongst it. Rock fishing, boat fishing, kayak fishing, deep sea fishing you name it. If he had to choose a favorite though it would certainly be rock fishing hands down. Last year he was lucky enough to win the Marsden Cove Marlin Classic fishing comp along with his mate, which saw them win an all expenses paid trip to Vavau, Tonga this year to compete in the Tongan International Billfish tournament. They didn’t win, but they caught a lot of big fish and came back with some pretty awesome photos.
With a keen eye for detail and years of experience, not to mention our fantastic machinery we have, your next printed product is in safe hands with Johan.
