Time for double quarter century of service awards at Thorite

Thursday 12th December 2013

Stephen Wright, Managing Director of Thorite, recently presented two senior staff members with commemorative wrist watches to mark both their 25 years of service with the company.

Darren Lindsay (43) is currently Thorite's Doncaster Sales and Service Centre Supervisor, a position he has occupied since 2000. Darren lives in Doncaster and first joined Thorite on a youth training scheme, before being employed in the warehouse. Further promotion saw him becoming Internal Sales Administrator, a position he held until taking on his current role. Darren's all-consuming passion is the sporting world, having played football for over 25 years. He's now hung his boots up, but is still heavily involved with the local Saturday team.

Also receiving his award was Richard Vaughan (59). Richard lives in Wilsden near Bingley and is Thorite's Marketing Manager. Before joining Thorite he was originally involved in another long established city centre family business called T. Underwood and Co, a tools, hardware and cutlery dealership which supplied to the trade and retail sectors. The company was established by his great, great grandfather and Richard ran the tool business, which he considered to be ideal preparation for his role at Thorite. Married to Gill with two sons, Matthew and Thomas, in his leisure time Richard is a well known motorsports competitor in northern Hillclimb and Sprint competitions, successfully campaigning his ultra-fast Thorite-sponsored OMS single seater racing car over the last three seasons.

To round the quarter century of service awards off Stephen Wright had arranged to take both recipients for dinner with the Thorite directors happily both Darren and Richard turned up for the big event right on time!
