Ultraframe, the market leader in the design and manufacture of conservatory roofing systems, has recognised the loyalty and dedication of the long standing members of its staff by presenting them with awards.
269 Ultraframe employees collected long service awards in a series of presentation ceremonies at the company’s headquarters in Clitheroe. When the total service of staff eligible for awards is added together it amounts to a staggering 2,473 years! If taken as an average, each of these employees has contributed almost 10 years to the company’s growth and success.
Vanda Murray OBE, Managing Director at Ultraframe, presented the awards. She said: “This year marks Ultraframe’s 21st anniversary and it is therefore appropriate that we celebrate the hard work and commitment of the Ultraframe team. We shouldn’t underestimate the contribution that our employees make to our success and we were keen to take the opportunity to express our gratitude. The company’s reputation for quality and service and the dedication of our workforce are critical to meeting our future objectives. ”
The awards recognise the contributions made by employees with over five years service. Each was presented with a certificate and an individual gift in appreciation of their loyalty.
Terry Ward, who works in the Portal Division’s Commercial Sales Team, is the longest standing member of staff with an impressive 20 years employment at Ultraframe. Terry has been a key figure at Ultraframe almost since it was first established in 1983 and he has watched the company expand to the 1,200 employee-strong force it is today. He received a magnum of champagne as an acknowledgement of his valued contribution to the company’s success.
Terry said: “During my 20 years with Ultraframe I have seen huge technological advances in both the company and in the conservatory products we produce. I am very proud to be part of a team that is continually innovating and leading the conservatory market. It is a great environment to work in, with great people and I can hardly believe how fast the last 20 years have gone by!”
Terry is also taking part in a 10km charity walk to raise money for the North West Air Ambulance and Brain Research Trust.
