Minuteman Press in Strijdom Park, Randburg, is not only celebrating its 21st anniversary, but the company will be bidding farewell to team member Tiny Mamabolo, who will be retiring after 20 years of dedicated service.
Mamabolo, who has a wealth of experience, joined Minuteman Press Strijdom Park in February 1998 to take charge of the finishing and bindery department.
Along with her production responsibilities, Mamabolo took care of just about everything else in the shop. Loyal customers will remember Mamabolo’s friendly voice on the phone as she was invariably the first to answer calls.
While keeping an eye on the finishing and bindery operation, Mamabolo 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 11 May, the CEO of the Randburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Linda Blackbeard, dropped into Minuteman Press Strijdom Park to present Mamabolo with a certificate acknowledging her 20 years of loyal and dedicated service.
Before the formalities, Blackbeard chatted to Mamabolo, wishing her well for the future and urging her to remain actively engaged by spreading the message of the rewards achieved through hard word and dedication to the young people in her community.
Mamabolo has worked for each of the three Corder brothers, who thanked her for her loyal and dedicated service and wished her happiness in her well-deserved retirement. Her ready smile and calm demeanour will be sorely missed.
