Farewell to friend and colleague

Thursday 9th June 2011

Roger Bate - 1920 to 2011

We are deeply saddened by the death of Roger Bate who passed away in the early hours of Monday morning 6th June 2011. Roger was a founding Director and shareholder of our Leeds operation (formerly Thorite Pneumatics Ltd) back in 1960. He was involved in the business for many years both in his role at Enots, later to become Norgren, and latterly at Thorite as a working Director. Whilst he retired 20 years ago he still kept in touch with friends and colleagues in the business and will be fondly remembered by all.
