Careers

People

The heart of our business is our people.  The hard work and dedication of our valued team both in Ireland and in Poland is what drives ID Technology to offer the support and excellent service to which our clients have become accustomed.

History

ID Technology was officially launched in 1999 by the Minister for Trade and Enterprise for Ireland, Mary O’Rourke -TD. The organisation has grown from strength to strength every year since. The company has been driven forward by the vision and drive of the Managing Director John Clark who in turn was inspired by his father, the current Chairman Danny Clark, a Scottish Entrepreneur who started his own successful printing company in Glasgow in the 1960s.

Chairman

Daniel Fernie Clark

Our current Chairman is Glasgow born Daniel Clark who has a wealth of experience gained by a lifetime in the world of print. His career began at the age of fifteen as a message-boy with John Cossar Ltd, a local Printer and Publisher. Cossars also supplied stationery to many of the famous Glasgow Shipyards, which were situated nearby on Glasgow’s River Clyde.

Dan served a six-year apprenticeship as a compositor, which included advanced courses on Print Costing and Estimating and became proficient as a Monotype keyboard operator.  He worked with Wm. Collins & Sons Ltd, Fontana books publisher and Gilmour & Dean Ltd, one of the foremost Letterpress and Litho colour printers in Scotland.

As an ambitious young man, in his late twenties, Dan decided to start his own business and worked hard to create his dream.  In the 1960’s Dan achieved this by opening his own Printing facility which expanded and grew into a successful enterprise in his hometown of Govan as well as Glasgow City Centre and later adding a factory facility in South Lanarkshire.
