July has been a month of milestone birthdays at Guttridge this year!
Thursday 16 July, 2015
Tom Bane, Internal Sales Proposal Engineer, was bemused to turn up to work to find that his desk had been decorated in celebration of his 30th birthday. Photos of Tom in his much younger years had also been distributed around the factory and offices, much to the amusement of work colleagues. A photo-shopped version of Tom۪s current spiky hairstyle edited onto a photo of Tom age about 4 was a particular source of hilarity!
He left work nervously to be whisked away to celebrate on a mystery weekend break with his girlfriend.
Peter Guttridge, unfortunately clocking in at double Tom۪s years, was delighted and touched to be presented with a gift and card to celebrate his 60th birthday. Peter, Chairman of Guttridge, is very popular amongst Guttridge staff, who signed the card and gathered to see Noz Talukdar, Managing Director, present Peter with a spotting scope. Peter and his wife have very recently moved into a house that they designed and built with amazing views over the Cambridgeshire countryside. He had been considering buying a telescope to observe the wildlife and the changes in seasons across the landscape, so he was delighted with the gift. He will now be taking a well-deserved two week holiday to finish unpacking and get settled into their new home.
In addition, another 6 people out of the 105 staff employed by Guttridge, have turned, or will be turning, 30 in 2015, some from the same school.
With a foundation of 50 years of experience, Guttridge is a flourishing company, globally respected for delivering well-engineered, reliable materials handling solutions that continue to anticipate dramatically changing industrial needs.
