Steve retires after more than three decades at Sarginsons
April 4, 2013
The team at Sarginsons recently bid a fond farewell to foundry supervisor, Steve Greenwood, who recently retired after first joining the business back in 1975.
Steve initially started as a diecaster, a role he carried out for 18 years before taking a brief break from the business. After rejoining in 1998, Steve quickly rose up the ranks to his most recent position of foundry supervisor. Renowned among his colleagues for saying ‘I’ve only got one pair of hands’, Steve has been particularly instrumental in the ongoing regeneration of Sarginsons in the last 18 months.
Roy Sims, Joint Managing Director, said: “We are extremely sorry to see Steve, go, but all wish him and his wife, Christine, the very best for a happy and relaxing retirement together.
“As an established member of the team, Steve, has seen many changes over the years and he, like we all do, are proud to have firmly re-established ourselves as the ‘Centre of Excellence’ for low pressure diecasting.”
The father-of-two and grandfather-of-three was rewarded for his dedicated service with a collection from colleagues, a computer tablet and selection of beverages during a special presentation at Sarginsons, which was also attended by his wife. “ I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Sarginsons and are sad to be leaving at a time that the business is doing so well, but will enjoy my time with my family and will keep in touch” said Steve.
A former member of The Carpenter’s darts team in Leamington, Steve still plays and is currently coaching his son-in-law, Dave, who is part of the Sarginsons team. Steve also plans to spend his retirement by enjoying his other hobbies, watching cricket and fine art painting.
