Ian Hickman started working for Mereway as a Wood Machinist. Ian progressed to Despatch Team Leader then moved to Post and Carriers Division where he today works as a Factory Operative.
Martin Suffolk started with Mereway as a Production Operative. Martin is today, an extremely experienced operative on a number of saws and machines within the main production team.
"We are always delighted to present these gifts, as each person truly deserves recognition and reward for their commitment to our business,"says Managing Director Bob Norris. "Mereway are proud to say that with the addition of these staff, we now have 15 team members throughout the Mereway group who have reached their 20 years' service milestone."
