With a collective total of 170 years’ employment, six members of staff at Covers Timber and Builders Merchants are being recognised for their service to the company.
Long-standing dispatch manager Garry Hovey recently celebrated 35 years in the company, Richard Hunt, mill operator for the firm, and Gary Scott on counter sales have both reached their 30 year work anniversaries. Trevor Sanctuary, a driver for the firm has now completed 25 years of employment alongside Peter Devonport in IT and Graham Sque in maintenance.
In celebration of their commitment, each member of staff received a gift from a camera to DIY materials from Rupert Green, chairman of the builders merchant.
Green said: “Covers’ staff are our main asset; not only do we offer attractive packages and invest heavily in training and development, but we also ensure that team members regularly have direct contact with the Directors to ensure that they feel valued and content.
“The number of long serving staff reflects that Covers really is a great place to work.”
