First ever flexo printer apprentice completes training

09 Feb 2024

Ben Mathieson, 19, has completed his apprenticeship in flexographic printing.

Ben was our first ever flexographic printing apprentice and has worked incredibly hard during his two-year programme, becoming fully qualified in January 2024.

Production Supervisor, Steven Stewart, who mentored Ben through his apprenticeship commented; “Ben has a great work ethic and a very positive attitude which have undoubtedly help with the success he has achieved.

I’ve really enjoyed seeing him grow into his role and he has become a very accomplished printer. Having the opportunity to work on our new BOBST Expertflex 6 colour HQPP printer, was ideal for his training too, as he now has a superb skill set on one of the most up to date printers in our industry.”

Ben completed his Modern Apprenticeship and worked towards a Scottish Vocational Qualification in Press (Flexographic Printing Pathway) with Attain Training.

Graham Wilson, Director, Attain Training commented; “Ben has been a pleasure to work with and was calm, controlled and organised throughout the apprenticeship. We wish him every success as he moves onto the next phase of his training and career.”

Gavin O’Malley, Head of Operations at Boxshop added; “Apprenticeships are an essential part of training people in their chosen careers and Ben is a prime example of how successful they can be.

“As a company we’re always looking to help people develop and better themselves. We shall look forward to integrating more apprenticeships in the business, as opportunities arise, and supporting more people gain qualifications whilst working.”
