Bayswater LXRA team and Nadrasca Partnership

James Barry - Nadrasca Senior Printer

[Vision: James Barry walking through print shop]

I’ve only been here a short while but I’ve really enjoyed it and it’s been a lot different, and rewarding, and that’s due to the type of organisation that Nadrasca is.

[Vision: James Barry working with printers]

We are a fully operational print shop.

[Vision: Looking at printed material]

The only difference is that we employ supported work staff.

[Vision: Wayne Farmer using printers]

We produce everything that anyone outside could do.

[Vision: James Barry using printers and packing printed material]

Well what we’ve been doing for the Level Crossing Authority, employs anything from five to 40 participants.

Wayne Farmer - Nadrasca employee

[Vision: Wayne working]

I’ve been working for 34 years at Nadrasca. I work for 38 hours to Monday to Friday.

[Vision: James showing Wayne what needs to be done]

This goes in there, all the way along, and then you just start turning the handle here, just keep it going.

Trinity O’Rourke - Bayswater Level Crossing Removal Project

The partnership has been perfect. It’s a really good relationship.

[Vision: Nadrasca building - James printing]

Initially we engaged Nadrasca to print and distribute our community newsletters, which is a bi-monthly edition that goes out to about 12,500 residents and businesses. We’ve actually increased the scope because they’ve done such a good job with the newsletter.

[Vision: Employee looking at workers - train line - Staff printing]

So they’ve done pretty much all of the collateral now that we send out to the communities. All of that work is now done by Nadrasca.

[Vision: James packing community update newsletters]

Being able to get this information out to people and have it printed in a really high quality fashion, and distribute it in a timely manner, has been fantastic.

[Vision: Forklift driver loading boxes on truck]

It’s been a really good opportunity to get a great fit in there with the right social enterprise.

[Vision: Staff using printers - James speaking]

All the staff that we have come through the print shop, they all enjoy being in there.

[Vision: Staff packing boxes - shrink wrapping boxes - Wayne working]

And they enjoy the work that they do, and they’re very quality conscious in their focused on the job that’s put in front of them, yeah.

[Vision: Employee - James speaking]

They’re not in a rush to go out the door at the end of the day, so yeah.
