“Forget L&P, Paeroa has an unacknowledged place in New Zealand’s music history……….just to the right as you cross a narrow bridge into the town is Goldfields printing factory where for so long most of the vinyl album sleeves in New Zealand were produced”.
44 years later we are still based in Paeroa, exporting our own range of product to Australia and have a growing number of great customers who can get their printing and packaging needs filled by a dedicated team of people who believe that a happy customer is the key to our success.
Jacqui Buckton Day – Director
After 12 Years in the Film & Television industry, Jacqui moved to Paeroa from the big smoke and has never looked back. Administration and being bossy is her thing. Her background is in Production Management, Marketing, Finance and Administration.
Jacqui has been with Goldfields for just over 8 years and has worked for a variety of industries, starting her career aspirations studying Civil Engineering (NZCE) at Carrington polytechnic, before choosing a totally different path as a lonely accountant. Falling into accounting was kind of an accident but the experience in Administration has formed a great solid base from which to understand the importance of having a great team and the dynamics of business today.
Mardy Rata – Customer Service/Estimator
Among other things our customer service queen and enjoys looking after our customers and making sure they are all happy. In her hay day Mardy played Representative rugby (for the girls!) and luckily for us no one snapped her like a twig and she can still walk. She is a great member of the team and if there is anything that you require, Mardy will be only too happy to assist.
Amber is the baby of the Goldfields Family and joined us straight from College 8 years ago. Amber is qualified in Graphic communication & Design and over the many years at Goldfields has honed her design skills; she has a great rapport with our customers who love her. Amber is currently on Maternity leave after having twins!!
Josh heads our prepress design department and has a diverse background in art production and graphic design. He has a fantastic eye for detail and design and is always happy to guide our customers through the creative process so that we can achieve the optimum result for your precious product.
Glenys started working for Goldfields Print, collating colour paper or doing the butterfly dance as I like to say, in June 1994 and then was asked to help out in the main factory (how big was this place then??) where she apparently got lost and has been here for the past 18 years. Luckily for her prize winning Samoyed dogs, she finds her way home upon an evening to feed and take care of them. Glenys is Robyn’s right hand and supervises all the bindery processes.
Maryann Ogle – Bindery
We are very happy to have Maryann back in the team! After several years absence and one child later, Maryann brings her knowledge and experience of all things bindery to Goldfields again.
Allan Scott – Glue Machine Operator Allan operates the great big Glue machine with ease and says he’s laid back, I wonder why??? .Allan also helps out in all other areas of the factory as well as running other machine. He is into all the things that make life in NZ great, camping, fishing, 4 Wheel driving.
