East Anglian Galvanizing has held a special event at its Sawtry base to mark the retirement of one of its longest-serving employees.
The plant said goodbye last week to 70 year old Peter Marks who joined the company in 1982. Peter started his career with the firm as a lorry driver and over the next three decades, rose through the ranks to ultimately manage the plant’s entire transport fleet.
Paul Bayford, General Manager at East Anglian Galvanizing, said: “We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to Peter for his hard work and dedication over the past 29 years.
“During Peter’s time here at East Anglian Galvanizing, he has seen significant changes, including a move from our old premises in Peterborough where we’d been for over 60 years which saw our customer base increase by 15% within a year of relocating.
“Our vehicle fleet subsequently grew by a third and Peter expertly managed the increasing demands from our customers across the region with enthusiasm and vigour. It has been a pleasure to work alongside Peter, and the whole team here wishes him a very happy and fulfilling retirement.”
