Kitchen sink and brassware supplier Abode has recognised its longest serving employee Robert Wilsher, who has been with the company for 20 years.
He was presented with a commemorative trophy presented to him by the directors of the business, at the company’s HQ in Yorkshire and rewarded with a congratulatory dinner.
Pictured from left to right is sales director Peter Phelan, finance director Tom Sharpe, stock controller Robert Wilsher and managing director Matthew Pitt.
Commenting on Robert Wilsher’s anniversary, Matthew Pitt said: “Rob started his career with Abode in September 2002, first beginning in the warehouse before progressing into distribution management and then stock control.
“Supplying him with a depth of knowledge and expertise, following two decades of working with the brand, Rob continues to prove his dedication and loyalty every day and has become a great role model for those already in the company or thinking about joining.”
Robert Wilsher, stock controller at Abode added: “For me, the last twenty years has felt less like work and more like a fun journey, which I have been able to learn and grow from along the way.
“Not only am I surrounded by colleagues that I deem as my friends and family, I also get to share how the company and marketplace has dramatically changed over the last twenty years and, with that, how Abode has continued to influence and helped to define the latest designs and technologies for the UK kitchen and bathroom.”
It follows on on from the announcement that Abode has recently promoted Graeme Blythe to the role of national contracts manager.
