I used to work for Pressac, they had facilites on Acton Road (now flats), Acton Grove (which previously was a pencil factory), New Tythe Street, Leopold Street in the old mill, a subsidary on Oakland Avenue (now flats) and another one in Sandiacre/Stapleford so were quite big employers in the town but over the years contraction and consolidation has resulted in the current facility at Glaisdale Drive in Nottingham.
I too used to work from home for Pressac. I had a little hand held machine that pressed pins into plastic plugs, these were from the Leopold Street factory. Later I had dozens of coloured cables that had to have their ends put into plastic plugs at each end. They took forever to do and I had stuff all over the house. The pay was rubbish and you had to do loads to get anything decent. Eventually I went to work at the Leopold Street factory where I worked a twilight shift. You could go there at any time and get a job on almost any shift.
A similar company was called Tudor Components and they were based at Attenborough. They did very similar work, also rubbish pay. I worked for them too.
I worked for Pressac from leaving school in 1984, to redundancy in early 1990.
I worked in the mould shop, then for the last few months of employment i used to set the presses in peoples homes, deliver/pick up the items, and repair the presses.
The items home workers used to make were things like fuse boxes for ford cars, BT phone equipment, and various other electrical components.
Quite a few of them put the brass screw inserts into BT phone sockets, and electrical connectors into connector blocks etc, from what i remember, it was very labour intensive, for little money, I used to visit one couple, where the husband operated the press all night, and the wife all day.
Good old days!!
