Building products manufacturer Forterra celebrated a number of employees who have worked for the company for 25 years and 40 years at a special ceremony in London.
Some 13 employees attended the event and were presented with awards at The Grosvenor Hotel from Forterra’s Chief Executive Stephen Harrison, while a further six who were unable to attend the event received their awards while at work.
Eight employees – Alan Thompson, Brian Reddy, Joe Duggan, George Baca, Gary Foster, Andrew Baldwin, Paul O’Brien and John Harkness – were presented with solid silver medals from the Institute of Clayworkers for 40 years continuous service in the clayworking industry. There have only been 23 recipients of this prestigious medal in the last year in the UK.
The other employees honoured by Forterra are: Nick Clark, Keith Burchell, David Stock, Mark Glover, Stuart Hamer, Sharon Pethick, Minder Hayer, Andrew Thomas and Alan Marcer, all of whom have worked at the company for 25 years, and John Duffy and Mick Clarke both of whom have worked there for 40 years.
Harrison said; “Forterra is a long established company, with 18 manufacturing facilities across the country, and it’s our dedicated and highly experienced employees that are this firm’s greatest asset.”
