Designer Contracts awards long-serving employees

Designer Contracts, the UK’s largest flooring contractor, has acknowledged 65 long-serving members of staff with special awards, as it celebrates its 25th year in business.

The company, which has grown rapidly over the past 25 years, treated five of the longest serving employees to a celebratory meal at the Casa hotel in Chesterfield, the town where the business is headquartered. At the dinner, Designer Contracts md Peter Kelsey presented Andrew Brent, Jill Lee, Cath Amphlett, Tim Williams and Fay Sykes with engraved iPad Pros as a thank you for their dedication and loyalty.

John Vidgeon, who is based in the South West region, and has worked with the business for over 20 years, was separately presented with his iPad Pro by his divisional director.

Said MD, Peter Kelsey:

“As we celebrate our 25th year we thought it would be an opportunity to thank our longest serving employees for their loyalty.

“Having a friendly and caring attitude across the business is extremely important to us and I was absolutely delighted when we discovered that 65 people qualified for long serving awards! Going forward we will recognise those people who achieve new levels each year.”

Some of the longest serving employees commented on their time with the business:

Said Jill Lee:

“We started out in what can only be described as a large garage, so it has been amazing to see the company grow from strength to strength. I feel very proud to have been a part of that.”

Fay Sykes started working as an office manager in Chesterfield for the company in early 1998 said: “Over the years my role has evolved massively and now I’m design contracts manager. When I first started working for the business my location didn’t even have a computer! I’m so proud of what the company has achieved.”
