2018 is a year of milestones for Minuteman Press in Strijdom Park, South Africa. Not only is the business celebrating its 21st anniversary but Tiny Mamabolo, who joined the business shortly after it opened its doors, has retired after 20 years of loyal and dedicated service.
Tiny, with a wealth of experience having been in the printing industry for over a decade, joined Minuteman Press Strijdom Park in February 1998 to take charge of the finishing and bindery department.
Along with her production responsibilities, Tiny took care of just about everything else in the shop. Loyal customers will remember Tiny’s friendly voice at the end of the phone as she was invariably the first to pick up.
Whilst keeping an eye on the finishing and bindery operation, Tiny has for the past several years operated the guillotine, her care and precision ensuring that wastage has been kept to an absolute minimum.
On Friday 11th May, the CEO of the Randburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Linda Blackbeard, dropped into Minuteman Press Strijdom Park to present Tiny with a certificate acknowledging her 20 years of loyal and dedicated service, a huge achievement in this day and age.
Before the formalities, Linda chatted to Tiny, wishing her well for the future and urging her to remain actively engaged by spreading the message of the rewards achieved through hard word work and dedication to the young people in her community.
Tiny has worked for each of the three Corder brothers, who thanked Tiny for her loyal and dedicated service and wish her happiness in her well-deserved retirement. Her ready smile and calm demeanour will be sorely missed.
