Halifax-based Claude Hellowell has highlighted the 20th year of FLT driver Colin Whippey’s career with the company, praising him as a valued and exemplary employee.
Colin started work in the tanker shed at Claude Hellowell, and then moved into the yard, where he drives an FLT and keeps the yard operationally sound, including clearing or gritting as needed.
“Colin is reliable and efficient, and he’s hugely valued by the whole team,” says general manager Chris Lord.
Colin covers the (very) early mornings and is known for occasionally warming his breakfast crumpets on his forklift during the colder months. He has also adopted some key duties for himself, including walking the MD’s dog Louis.
“Colin walks Louis daily after work. They are as thick as thieves,” says Chris. “We just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the many years we’ve been lucky enough to have Colin and say thank you.”
