History in Film – Machinery

Investing in the latest equipment has always been the ethos at Optichrome and this mindset was started right at the beginning by Ken Stephens. The importance of working with the latest innovations in print technology is still as important to us today. 

This History in Film reel walks us through our factory as it was in 1963 when the company was founded. To help us appreciate what we are looking at in the films, we asked Optichrome Managing Director John Heywood to narrate. John joined Optichrome in 1976 as an apprentice and remembers some of the machinery well.
