Marshalls has celebrated the commitment of employees who have been with the company for 25 years at a presentation at Bertie’s Banqueting Rooms near the company’s head office in Elland.

The 39 employees, 24 of whom are from the local area, have accumulated 975 years of service between them and were presented with a well gold watch and certificate by Chief Executive Martyn Coffey.

Stephen Garside, Software Developer and Business Analyst at Marshalls, who was at the event celebrating his 25 years of service said: “We had a great day, with the chance to catch up with colleagues from around the business and the opportunity to reflect on our time at Marshalls.

“We have seen the company change from a family run business to a PLC and survive through two recessions in the 1990’s and the most recent one.

“When speaking to people, one common thought was that Marshalls had given them and their families stability and a good standard of living over the last 25 years.”

Chief executive Martin Coffey said: “The long service awards is a fantastic event as it gives us the opportunity to thank all those individuals who have played such an important part in the success of our business.

“I would like to thank them all for their years of hard work and dedication.”
