BINDERY brilliance

The BEST in the business!

Our bindery department has always been a bit of a mystery to me. This is probably because I don't know much about them or what they do. Whenever I walk by the bindery area, the staff are hard at work with their heads down completing many different tasks to get orders out the door in a timely manner. They are a quiet bunch that navigate all sorts of loud, interesting machinery to punch, staple, sort, wrap, count, pad, stitch, glue and wind. They are extremely focused on doing the job right and it seems like the work load is never ending. They are a close knit crew who communicate throughout the day with each other in a super noisy work environment. They always smile or return waves as I pass, but the constant hum of machinery and the fact that they all wear ear plugs makes it hard to stop and chat.

I decided to ask a few questions to learn more about the bindery department and the work they do each day at Factor Forms and Labels West.

There are 11 full time and 1 part time employees that work in the department. Christiline is their fearless Lead Hand. She has worked here since 2002 and this spunky lady definitely has both the knowledge and experience to take the helm. All of the rest of these employees have had on the job training and are excellent with numbers of course! They all work together like a well oiled machine, ready to take on daily production challenges.

Most of the bindery staff agree that perfect binding, stitching and padding are their favourite stations and others say that it depends on the day. They ALL agree that friendly coworkers and physical activity are the best parts of the job. The least favourite is the cutting station, because it is so precise. There were some that indicated that there is nothing they don't like to do in bindery! They enjoy the variety each day as they are all proficient with each station. I mentioned standing for 8 hours a day must be rough and they looked at me like I was crazy. There were no complaints about that. What a sturdy group!
