Nova Tissue sponsors local football club

Nova Tissue is now the proud sponsor of the local Santos Under 7s football team kit. We’ll be sponsoring the kit for two seasons and look forward to hearing about their successes and game wins!

Santos AFC is a Royton based inclusive club with a focus on development and enjoyment, children as young as 4 and 5 are welcomed to join. Our Managing Director, Khurram Iqbal’s son is the goalkeeper for the U7s so he’ll be watching the team and cheering them on from the side lines.

The shirts feature our new Nova Tissue logo which we hope will serve as a good luck charm over the seasons we’ll be sponsoring.

Martyn on Maintenance

Employee Spotlight with Martyn Preston, Head Engineer at Nova Tissue

Here at Nova Tissue, we take pride in the calibre of our team members and appreciate the hard work they put in to ensure that we can continue manufacturing high quality toilet tissue and kitchen towel to a high standard day-in-day-out. Martyn Preston, our Head Engineer, took a few minutes out of his day to answer some questions about his role which sees him constantly improving the reliability, efficiency and safety of our plant and personnel:

How did you get into the paper conversion industry?

I have over 25 years’ experience in this niche industry and previously worked for an engineering company as a consultant to tissue converters so my knowledge has grown from there. A lot of what I learnt at that company is still being used here at Nova Tissue and is being passed down to younger members of the team.

Which piece of machinery at the Nova Tissue factory is your favourite and for what reason?

My favourite piece is the Stax Wrappers machine because it’s a relatively new addition to the factory. I love dealing with new pieces of kit and learning how it all works. I suppose I’m a bit like a child with a new toy, although the novelty hasn’t worn off just yet!

What sort of jobs do you do on an average day at work?

On an average day at work I go around each machine and change over parts to ensure that they are all working to achieve maximum efficiency. I also do a lot of preventative maintenance. Everything needs to be in tip-top condition because we run 24 hours a day Monday to Friday so it’s incredibly important that all the machines and equipment are spick and span – like a well-oiled machine some might say!

What do you think is Nova Tissue’s greatest ‘unique selling point’?

Because we’re a smaller family firm, we take real pride in what we do. Some people may think that making toilet paper and kitchen roll isn’t the most glamourous job in the world but it’s a lot more interesting that you might imagine and it is the people behind the manufacturing that make the products and the customer experience so good.
