We have been working for a couple of years with a global customer to bring their new product to life. Today we have received full TUV approval so this product can stand ahead of its competitors in all countries of the world. We would particularly like to thank our production engineers for making this happen, especially our Test and Quality Manager who has spent many hours devising manufacturing documentation that was acceptable to TUV.
If you ever tour places like Guinness, Alcatraz and Warner Bros you will be able to use the products that we are making.
We are closing down for the Christmas holiday from 17:15 on the 22nd December, until 08:00 3rd January 2017.
Please note that Goods-In will be closed for this period.
Some words from Kenny
Before I get into Sandra speech I would like to say a few kind words from myself, I have known Sandra for 19 years and she has been a mentor , a mother and a really good friend to me, as the years passed by our friendship have grown from strength to strength I personally will miss you.
Some words from Sandra
As this is a very emotional time for me I would like to thank everyone for all your support during my very hard times with my illness and the sad passing of my husband, without the good people around me I don't know what I would of done, all of you have been like a family to me especially Kenny and Graham.
I have laughed I have cried, and now I don't know what I'm going to do without all off you, young and old I have loved all off you and now this is the end of the road.
I have enjoyed my 19 years at Microtech
Retirement! I can't quite believe that it is happening to me.
You always seem to think of retirement as something way ahead of you; something that is still a long way off. Well, it has a way of sneaking up on you. And here I am ... poised on the brink of my own retirement.
But just as much as my retirement brings with it anticipation for the future; it is also a time to reflect on the past and perhaps a moment that brings with it echoes from the past and our years together.
So many of my memories at Microtech have been the best.
I am, and will always be grateful for the invisible, yet ever present support and friendship that I have been fortunate to share with so many colleagues.
I’ve had some really good moments throughout the years, my coffee break chats; working together to meet an important deadline (Not as fast nowadays ) sharing a birthday cake or celebrating in the news of a christening, a birthday or a wedding - these are the moments that I will miss the most - these are the intangible everyday magical moments that define the special people who make Microtech
May the company and all of you go from strength to strength.
Thank you once again for all your love and support you have given me.
Gursharn Sandhu (Sandy) wishes to express his happiness of serving this great company of 40 years, which has been great part of my life.
We are implementing a new telephone system at Microtech starting on Thursday 17th November so there may be a few communication issues until it is completely implemented. If all goes well, then it will be finished by Monday 21st November.
