Vaculug employee retires after 48 years with company

Vaculug’s Christine Bartlett retires today, following 48 years’ service. Bartlett joined Vaculug in September 1970 as a lithographic printer, creating and printing all paperwork and price lists both internally and for the company’s 23 depots throughout England. She then moved into the position of stationery buyer, responsible for coordinating internal stationary requirements and liaising with depots.

Bartlett was keen to understand other roles within the business and soon moved on to being trained to cover reception. Immediately after and eager to do well, Christine was appointed full time receptionist, whilst also carrying out day-to-day printing and stationary orders. In 2009 she stepped into the call centre, where she is today, and has supported Grumac with shows, lunches for customers and the 25-year dinner. Having initially started at Gonerby Hill Foot, Bartlett moved to Spittalgate Mill, then to Gonerby Hill Foot, followed by Alma Park, and finally back to Gonerby Hill Foot.

After 48 years with the company, Christine is looking forward to having her own time with friends and family, along with maybe once in a while popping in to see her Vaculug Family.

Vaculug has offered Bartlett its congratulations: “While you will be missed by all you certainly deserve your retirement. Your contribution, hard work and diligence over the past 48 years will be greatly missed. All will agree that it has been a pleasure to work with you. Wishing you a fun and fruitful retirement from all at Vaculug!”
