Working 'For the Kids'
"Moving under the ITS umbrella has been a very positive thing. Even though the new director doesn't have a background in printing, he's very supportive of the in-plant, and now we're looking at redesigning the shop: improving flow-through and the use of our equipment," she says.
The in-plant is even planning to get a new high-volume digital press, and is getting RFPs for next year from NexPress and Océ. Over the next few years, Hale says she'll be pushing to get her in-plant into a larger space.
Outside of work, Jan Hale and her husband have two daughters and four grandchildren and enjoy four-wheeling with their dog in a Pinzgauer all-terrain vehicle.
