Celebrating in style

The Glazerite UK Group kicked off its 20th year with a big party for the fabricator’s 270 employees.

The event, held at the Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire, was attended by staff members and their partners from each of the fabricator’s five sites, with food, live music, a DJ, and a casino laid on as part of the evening’s entertainment. During the night, Wellingborough-based employee Shane Hawkes had his hair shaved off by his colleagues, raising over £2,000 for Glazerite’s nominated charity, We Mind and Kelly Matters.

Glazeritesupervisor, Lyndon Wright, who has worked at the fabricator’s northwest plant for over 10 years, travelled down from Bolton for the party.

“We had a fantastic time,” he said.“It was such as lovely atmosphere and a good chance to catch up with people from the other Glazerite sites.”

Group managing director, Jason Thompson, said: “We wanted to hold a party to celebrate the commitment and dedication put into Glazerite by all of our employees. It was a fantastic way to come together and celebrate everything we’ve achieved so far. Some of our employees travelled a long way on a Saturday to join us and this speaks volumes in itself.”
