Studio Manager Dave Gower retires after 43 years of dedicated service

The time has now come for everyone past and present, colleague, employee, supplier, and customer to finally wish a Happy Retirement to our Studio Manager Dave Gower. With over 43 years of dedicated service to Stampiton and Interket, Dave will be finally retiring from his duties and long service.

Having commenced employment in February 1978, Dave is officially our longest serving member of Staff… Which of course is a fantastic achievement. He has seen many changes through the years, in both technology for his job and the printing machines, as well as the ownership changes of the business.

I am sure Dave has very many fond memories from over the years, from his days in the dark room ‘typesetting’ to the modern era of digital artwork and operating the Mac.
All being well, as we settle into a new normal, Dave will be enjoying his many hobbies during his retirement, from photography, to music, and of course a beer or two in his local.

I would personally like to take this opportunity to wish Dave all the best for the future and would like to thank him for the last 43-years of dedication, support, and hard work that he has shown to the business of Stampiton / Interket UK. Everyone at Interket UK wishes Dave all the very best for his next chapter. Dave will formally leave the business effective this coming Friday, 12th March 2021.
