The 28th of March 2018 is a sad day for Ron Brooks as we say goodbye to Graham Mason who has retired after 40 years with the company.
Kevin slack, our Managing Director had this to say to Graham "I would like to congratulate you on almost the completion of 40 years employment with Ron Brooks, your start date was 29th July 1978 which was when the company took over the Ilkeston Coachworks. Over the last 40 years you have been an exemplary employee with an excellent attendance record and have helped develop many of the young apprentices, some of whom have remained with the company and others who have moved on, growing in their own right and some even now working as trainers within the Toyota Training Academy."
Adding shortly after "In closing both I and Mrs Brooks put on record our appreciation of your hard work and dedication and commitment to the company."
When we asked Graham about his time with the company he said "I've thoroughly enjoyed my time with the company and am sad to say goodbye, especially to my team who are a great bunch of lads."
We're sure you will all join us in thanking Graham for his 40 years with the company and wishing him a long and happy retirement.
