Mario Richardson retires after 44 years service

Mario Richardson retires after 44 years service

There are not many employees who can claim to have worked for the same company for 44 years, but that is exactly how many years service Mario Richardson gave to Gopak.  Having reached the age of 60 on Friday 11th November, Mario has now retired.  Starting off as a young 15 year old lad he joined Gopak in April 1972 as a Production Operative bolstering the small team making a range of folding tables.  By 1986 he had been promoted to Production Director overseeing the whole of the manufacturing processes for the business, supported by his ever expanding production team, as the business grew to the size it is today. 

It was lovely that so many of the original team were able to join us for Mario’s retirement party including Peter Le Fleming Shepherd, who is now 94, the designer of the iconic Gopak folding table.  Andrew Fieldwick presented Mario with a watch on behalf of the business to mark his exceptional contribution to Gopak over the decades.  We all wish Mario a very happy retirement.
