On September 6th, the In-Plant Graphics publication interviewed David Hughes, the manager of Custodial Services & Auxiliary Service for Salem-Keizer Public Schools, on the recent improvements in the production area of the Reprographics Department.
An Upward Spiral
by Nicole Perry
The math isn’t hard. Take six high schools each ordering about 2,000 academic planners at the beginning of the school year, and that’s … a lot of spiral binding. The in-plant at Salem-Kaizer Public Schools in Salem, Ore., was having a hard time keeping up with demand.
“We have about 95 buildings total, district-wide,” explains David Hughes, manager of custodial, property and auxiliary services. “And 20% of our work is for other agencies in the area.”
“The question was,” he continues, “were we going to step up our game, turn jobs away or outsource? We really believe strongly in serving our community from the inside, if we can.” For that reason, Hughes and his team moved to abandon their three-step binding process in favor of a solution that was much faster.
