Long serving employees of Nottingham based Caunton Engineering were rewarded for their hard work and dedication over the years at a company awards celebration on Saturday 9 December.

Eleven members of staff were recognised, including software developer Richard Simm and business unit manager Allan Younger, who have each worked for Caunton Engineering for 30 years. They were congratulated by the company’s managing director Simon Bingham at a special meal for staff and partners at the Springwater cantonese restaurant in Calverton.

Contracts manager Adrian Downing was rewarded for his 25 years of loyal service, as were production manager Mark White, sales administer Tracey Careless and IT manager Roger Gore who have each chalked up 20 years at the company.

Project engineer Malcolm Thorpe and painter Chris Pilgrim were thanked for their 15 years of service and three staff members were recognised for their 10 years at the company. They are plater and welder Neil Cook, project engineer Simon Thomas and works team leader Steven Wigman.

Each long serving employee was rewarded with a financial bonus to buy a gift of their choice. “Caunton Engineering is a family run company with around 190 staff, many of whom have been with us a long time,” said human resources manager Jacquie Swinn. “ We treat our employees as individuals and there is great camaraderie at the firm.”
