In memory of Chris Fryer

24th August 2017

Earlier this month we commemorated the untimely passing of a dear colleague, Chris Fryer. Chris worked in the role of Maintenance Engineer at our West Bromwich Converting facility, a position he held for some 15 years. Chris' colleagues didn't want the day to pass by without marking the occasion in some way, and befitting a man with the surname of Fryer the decision was made to indulge in that hearty breakfast fare....the fried bacon butty.

This was deemed to be a fitting mark and one that would take place each year from now on. Commenting on the occasion Bryen Humphreys, Divisional Director said, “I knew the first anniversary was coming up and I felt it was important that we didn’t let the day go by.  

We used to laugh that Chris liked nothing better than a good old moan (and don’t we all), even when it came to the quality of his bacon butty – but he always went back for more! But Chris was a very generous man; he would do anything for you and that’s how we all remember him. Chris was instrumental in helping us set up the new Converting facility but sadly he never did get to see the fruits of his labours in the superb operation we established, as he became so ill.  We sent the photograph of us all enjoying our butties to Chris’ wife Carol and we received a lovely response from her. Chris won’t be forgotten”.

  • Supporting a local college with graphical board

    We've been helping a local college out with material for their GCSE Art and Resistant Materials coursework for a few years now and when they contacted us recently to ask if we could continue to support them, we were only too happy to offer some graphical board. With tight constraints on local authority budgets these days and the juggling act head teachers have to perform-Craig Curtis, Hamilton College's Assistant Head of Faculty and Teacher of Design Technology has always been greatly appreciative of the support we can offer.
