End Of An Era

Ron Walton, one of Artcraft Victoria's trade qualified screen printers has retired bringing an end to a long 49 year career at Artcraft. Ron started as an apprentice screen printer with the company in 1965, printed millions of signs since and can now sit back and enjoy his retirement, fishing to his hearts content!

A man of few words, Ron had a fantastic work ethic and will be sadly missed in the Victorian operation. A passionate AFL Geelong Cats supporter, Ron was driven to despair over the losses of four grand finals between 1989-1995 but came to life (and as many fellow employees noted), that the smile could not be wiped from his face when they finally won the flags in 2007, 2009 and 2011.

Pictured below, Ron after being presented with a custom sign made by Artcraft especially for the occasion, signed by all staff members.

Management and staff wish Ron all the very best on a long and relaxing retirement.
