16 Oct ‘A piece of the furniture’ after 22 years of service
We’ve always been proud of our long-standing family history, however, we’re also equally as proud of the opportunities our staff can have at Constant to start as young sheet metal workers and forge their own long-standing career at Constant.
This year we look back on our longest, non-family, time-served member of staff; Anthony Morris.
Anthony ‘back in the day’
Anthony in October will celebrate his 22nd year at Constant, and he’s ‘been there, done that’, in pretty much any role in the factory. Anthony joined us as a YTS apprentice, at the age of 16 and our Chairman Richard Garlick, then the Managing Director, recalls his interview where Anthony wore a smart shirt and tie, teamed with a pair of shorts!
Local to Constant, Anthony still cycles to work, and has been through a raft of training to see him from a shop floor kickplates lad, to Factory Manager. Anthony is always keen to develop himself, and took opportunities offered to upskill and work up the management ladder such as; Health and Safety Adviser training, several managerial and operations training certificates, advanced machinery, and tool training, as well his fork-lift truck license.
We’re delighted to see Anthony grow from a young shop floor lad, into a well-respected supervisor at Constant HQ. Anthony has seen us move buildings, expand the offices, take delivery of new wagons, install new machines, and inducted more apprentices and staff than he has fingers. If you’re ever looking for some background information on a project, customer, or piece of kit at Constant, Anthony will know!
