Paul Marley, an Internal Sales Representative for the Building Products division of Aggregate Industries, is celebrating 40 years with the leading construction materials supplier, having started with the company in 1977, just three weeks shy of his 16th birthday.
The Building Products division specialise in concrete blocks, walling blocks, roofing tiles and packed cement products for both commercial and residential buildings and Paul’s current role involves pricing and order fulfilment for structural walling and roofing, as well as providing invaluable support to the Building Products team.
Paul started work with the company just three days after finishing school and, during his time, has been based at the company’s factories in South Cerney, Cleveland Farm and Northend Works, in Swindon, where he is currently located. To commemorate his 40th anniversary, Paul was presented with a Long Service Award by Building Products Sales Director, Jeremy Lee.
Outside of work, Paul is a Trustee & Treasurer of Cricklade Historical Society and has recently become a Juror for a Ceremonial Court Leet. He also spent 12 years as a part-time Reservist in the Royal Auxiliary Air Force, during which time he served in the first Gulf War, and spent time posted in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
“I can’t quite believe it’s been 40 years. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and where I work, which is what has kept me here for so long. 40 years is a long time and things have certainly changed during my time working, most notably the introduction of computers and IT, but more importantly Health and Safety standards in the industry, which is one of Aggregate Industries’ core values. I look forward to many more years with the company.”
Jeremy Lee, Sales Director for the Building Products division, said:
“Our employees are the lifeblood of our business, which is why we place such a huge importance on their learning and wellbeing, which is one of the reasons, I hope, that has kept Paul with the business for so long.
“I offer a much deserved congratulations to Paul. He is a very important and valued member of the team and to have reached such a big milestone is fantastic. We hope to be issuing many more Long Service Awards at Aggregate Industries in the years to come.”
