Along with the recognition, staff will receive monetary vouchers of their choice depending on length of service plus champagne for those at 30 years.

Receiving the 30-year award were plant 1 team leader Lee Cook and purchase ledger assistant Karen Redhead. 20-year awards were made to continuous improvement supervisor John Hopgood, plant 2 operative Andrew Cade, R&D team member Simon Moore and plant 1 operative Tim P Smith.     

Congratulating all the long-service staff and thanking them for for their contribution, MD Tim Smith said: “The length of time staff stay creates a real sense of family in the company. Even more so since we actually do have members of the same families working here – daughters, sons, fathers, mothers, cousins. This brilliant team spirit is created by the staff and it contributes directly to our success.”
