Long service awards

Seventeen staff from Ultraframe were recently presented with long service awards to celebrate working with the company for 25 years.

The staff, who work in departments from right across the business, will be displayed in a long service hall of fame in the reception of the Clitheroe-based company.

Ultraframe CEO Julian Slade said: “Our success is entirely due to our people. We are lucky to have so many talented and thoroughly nice people, who have dedicated their careers to Ultraframe and to providing such an excellent service to our customers.

“The combined length of service from these 17 members of staff is an impressive 425 years. During that time, they have helped to shape and steer Ultraframe into the progressive company it is today through their work in departments across the business including research and development, accounts, supply chain, customer first and various production departments such as built-up roofs and the fabrication shop.

“We always aim to develop our people and try our very best to live our values and create an environment where people can fully contribute and flourish. I’m proud of the positive workplace our staff create and would like to congratulate each of the 17 staff with 25 years’ service once again for their hard work and dedication over the years.”

Mick Rowley, head of fabricator and trade intermediary sales, has worked at Ultraframe for 26 years and was one of the 17 to receive a long service award recently.

“Every day at Ultraframe brings a new challenge and with it new opportunities,” Mick said. “In 26 years at Ultraframe, I have never felt as though I’ve been stood still, having undertaken many different roles through my time here, from shop floor fabricator to head of sales.

“This journey has been wonderful for me personally as I like to be challenged and embrace change. Ultraframe is all about innovation, improvement, and service, so it’s a great feeling to be part of this amazing team working with fantastic customers. Together we really do make something quite special.”
