Alfred started his career as a chemist with shell Oil, but, Muirhead/Crosfield came knocking in 1965 and he made the leap into what would be the new world of fax machines and desktop publishing. When he left Crosfield, he said that 'it took him 5 minutes to make up his mind what to do next' and in August of 1993 CCI was born. The first order came from Thompson Newspapers the first week in business and Alf never looked back. Alfred was known for his intelligence, droll wit and ever-cheerful disposition. CCI's motto 'We're small Enough to Be BIG on Personal service' exemplifies Alf's attitude to customers and friends alike. He will be greatly missed. Beloved husband and best friend of Bonney.
