(L to R) Graham Timson hands over the reins of Mayday Graphic Products to Jim Fox
“Jim has been with Mayday Graphic Products for over 26 years, during which time he has amassed a wealth of knowledge of litho, digital, and wide-format printing, working closely with customers, who acknowledge him as ‘the go to person’ when they have a problem or want an unbiased option on equipment and printing products,” says Timson.
He continues: “I am pleased and confident to be handing over the reins of Mayday to Jim. He is the rightful successor, having demonstrated vigour and commitment throughout the years we have worked together.
"‘Time waits for no man’ and for me it is the right time to retire, safe in the knowledge Mayday Graphic Products is well placed to move onto another phase.”
Fox also provided comment on his promotion: “I'd like to thank Graham for the opportunity to take over from him as the new managing director. We have worked together since Graham became managing director, when he took over from the previous owners John and Sue Buckingham in 2004.

"During that period Graham and I developed Mayday Graphic Products into one of the UK’s largest specialist suppliers of graphic art products, successfully steering the company through some extremely turbulent times, and I look forward to the future with immense optimism.”
Helen Timms who has been appointed general manager, following on from her post as office manager, added: "I joined Mayday a year after Graham became the sales director and thought throughout that time, how satisfying it’s been to work for a progressive company, and to work for Graham in particular.
"The last 16 years is a long time in work, and working with people you can relate to has certainly been a key benefit for me.
“I'm very pleased that Jim is able to take over Graham's role and I know my colleagues and co-workers will do everything they can to support Jim, as will I."
