  • News

On Wednesday 13th February, we bade farewell to a long serving and faithful companion… the Bridgeport milling machine was pensioned off after over 35 years of loyal service, and replaced with a younger and better model – a Warco universal milling machine.

This upgrade is the latest in a programme of investment in people and machinery to support the growth of the business.  Rollem are expanding the range of print finishing processes covered by their systems along with continuing to improve the customer’s production efficiency. With recent increased sales in the UK and across Europe, the future looks bright, so to ensure Rollem are able to meet the demand, and adapt to the changing requirements of their ever expanding customer base.

Rollem’s Purchasing Co-ordinator raises over £400 for Kidney Research

  • News

Rollem’s Purchasing Co-ordinator, Stacey Winfield, held a sponsored silence last Wednesday to raise money for Kidney Research UK.

As anyone who knows Stacey will realise, this was quite a challenge for her to undertake! She has raised over £400 for Kidney Research. Stacey’s mum, Sue, had a kidney transplant about 8 year ago, and it is looking likely that she will need to go back on dialysis soon.

Stacey celebrated her achievement with a couple of drinks after work with her colleagues.
