Happy Retirement After 45 Years!

In September we bid “happy retirement” to one of our delivery drivers, Paul Dawson, after 45 years’ service.

Paul joined G F Holding as a handyman and labourer working on sites around the country.  In the early 1980s he started working at our workshop in Whalley Range.  After a few months our then Managing Director, Geoffrey Holding, asked Paul if he would like to become a delivery driver.  An opportunity that Paul took and thoroughly enjoyed!

At Paul’s retirement presentation, our Chairman, Simon Holding commented: “Paul has been a great asset to our team.  We hope that Paul enjoys his well-deserved retirement, and stays in touch with his G F Holding family.”  Simon presented Paul with a framed photo of the original G F Holding delivery van.

Paul commented: “I have really enjoyed my time working at G F Holding.  I will miss the team and the work – it has been such a large part of my working life.”
