Meet the Plateworks Plus Team

 At Plateworks Plus, we're very proud that we have very little turnover and most of our employees have been around since the start of our company in 1996. Each department plays a very important role in the overall flow of art, plate and digital jobs. We could not be where we are today if it weren’t for our talented, dedicated teams.

Amber Herzog, Plateworks Plus, Minnesota

Amber Herzog

Amber Herzog began her business career in customer service. A short time later, she went to work with her brother. They were only a two and a half person shop (with their dad working part time) so it forced them to both wear many hats. Since then, she has worked in every department at Plateworks: customer service, sales, human resources, accounting, purchasing, marketing and even a little IT..

Says Amber, "Most people say they could never work with their family. I feel so fortunate to be part of a family business and I truly cherish coming to work every day."
