20+ years’ service celebrated at Nottinghamshire manufacturing firm

Newark-based Rototek has celebrated and thanked its longest serving team members with a 20 years’ service awards.

The firm, which has factories in Newark and Worksop, is one of Europe’s leading technical rotational moulding companies and is a major employer in the area.

Seven of its Newark-based employees have been part of the Rototek team for over 20 years and this has been acknowledged during an informal awards ceremony at its HQ on Sylvan Way.

During the event, the team members were presented with a certificate and received £750 in holiday vouchers, additional annual leave and a dinner voucher for a celebratory meal at a popular local restaurant.

The seven team members are: Ed Prime, Maintenance Engineer, Jo MacFarlane, Customer Account Administrator, John Stokes, Factory Manager, Wayne Evans, Production Manager, Mick Monk, Project Engineer, Linda Cree, HR Manager and Shaun Mills, Director.

Sean Conway, Managing Director of Rototek, said:

“The long service awards have been a real joy to be involved in and it was fantastic to acknowledge and celebrate our colleagues who have been part of the team and on the Rototek journey for 20 years plus, it’s a considerable achievement.

“We are lucky that we have a really friendly and skilled team here and hope that we provide a good working environment and a place people can choose to progress in. Having so many choose to stay with Rototek for so long is hopefully testament to that.

“On behalf of the whole team I would like to say a big thank you to Linda, Mick, Shaun, Ed, Wayne, Jo and John for your commitment to the business and long may it continue!”

Jo Macfarlane, Customer Account Administrator, said:

“I joined Rototek straight after school at 16 in 2001 and I’ve not looked back. Working here enabled me to do my NVQ2 in Business Administration through the Chamber of Commerce which was a great opportunity. It’s the management, my colleagues and our customers that make my job so enjoyable and the reason I have stayed in the team for so long.”

Shaun Mills, Director, said:

“I joined the firm 25 years ago in 1996 and I can honestly say each day holds a new challenge and every day is a school day. Learning new things and working with the team here is a pleasure and makes the work enjoyable and keeps the passion for this industry alive.”

Linda Cree, HR Manager, said:

“I joined Rototek in 2000 and remember it well; I had just had my 40th, was on crutches and had moved from medical to manufacturing – a real game changer!

“What makes Rototek a wonderful place to work is the support and loyalty from the management who listen and value my input, and it is a very friendly atmosphere and team. The next stage of the company’s journey looks very exciting, and I look forward to my role further developing and being a part of this.”

Rototek employs 140 people, is one of the UKs biggest technical rotational moulding plastics businesses and creates over 100 different products ranging from sailing boats to water tanks.
