Bob joined Alpha Rail in 1985 as a 34 year old and there is not much Bob has not turned his hand to on the shop floor. Machine operator, saw operator and latterly a fork lift driver. Cut Bob in half and he’d probably have Alpha Rail visible like a stick of rock!
Bob was rewarded for his long service with a shop floor presentation from all his work colleagues who had arranged a collection to buy Bob some whisky and gift vouchers to spend in his retirement.
In his leaving speech, Bob thanked everyone and said, “Working at Alpha Rail for over 30 years had been easy because everyone has made it such an enjoyable experience.”
He reminded his colleagues that Alpha Rail is all about the people and added, “ Success, like failure, is a collective thing and not determined by any one individual. Please look out for one another, and that way, Alpha Rail will be able to celebrate many more milestone anniversaries.”
A fairly solitary chap, Bob loves his music, films and live concerts and hopes to fully enjoy his leisure time and keep active doing voluntary work for local communities and charitable groups.
