We are very sorry to announce that Ryan Cooper, one of our valued production staff, sadly passed away at Oakhaven Hospice last weekend.

A charismatic and fun-loving member of the team, Ryan will be sorely missed by all who knew him.  Ryan joined the company 8 years ago in 2011, starting as a machine operator but quickly rose to 2nd Ops co-ordinator, handling all our post-production operations.  This role was critical to the smooth running of the production department and it was down to Ryan’s keen eye for detail, steady hand and persistent cheerful nature that helped us to improve both quality and efficiency.  Quality and Production Manager, Matt remembers “Ryan had a really good eye, he would just look at the plan and know what was involved and get on with it.”

Paying tribute to Ryan, Geoff Elvy, Managing Director said “we’re so sad to have to say goodbye to Ryan.  He’s been a fundamental part of the team for many years. Hard-working, well respected but above all, a crazy character! We will miss him greatly.”
