Dexam celebrates long-standing employee

On August 25, Dexam held a surprise party to celebrate Philip Aslett’s 50th work anniversary. The current Dexam team plus others who have worked with Aslett in the past, all gathered in the company’s Showroom to mark this outstanding achievement.

Aslett joined Dexam in 1973 as a warehouseman when he was just 19 years old. At the time he took home £20 a week and throughout the years trained as a forklift operator. The company organised a surprise party with drinks and sandwiches to celebrate his time at Dexam and to thank him for his hard work and dedication.

“Living locally and as a fresh-faced teenager, I fell out of bed straight into Dexam for my 8.30 start and never looked back. Dexam have supported me throughout my years and it is a personal firm where people matter. I think that’s why I have stayed here for so long. It has been an honour to work with everyone past and present and have no plans as yet to hang up my hat!” said Philip.

Hugh Stewart, chairman of Dexam, added: “It is amazing to think that Phil has worked in Dexam for almost as long as the company has existed. What a wonderful association! The strength of any company is always its people – their enthusiasm, their experience and their ability to ride the ups and downs with equal resolve. Phil is just such a person, and his experience knows no bounds. A huge thank you, Phil, and congratulations on your half century.”
