    25 years' service for Alan Harper


    Symm Project Manager Alan Harper was celebrating last week as he passed the milestone of 25 years continuous service at Symm. Alan first joined us at the tender age of 18 to complete the final year of his Carpentry and Joinery in Advanced Craft apprenticeship then, following a break to explore the world of being a sub-contractor he returned, becoming Site Manager in 1993 and in 2009, Project Manager, overseeing higher value projects.
    Alan has amassed an enviable collection of Symm memorabilia over his 25 years, amongst which is a photograph on the front of a 1990’s Symm brochure of the young carpenter working on roof timbers.
    Chairman James Axtell and Aidan Mortimer presented Alan with his award during a special site visit, toasting the occasion with a fresh builders’ brew!

    towards the beginning of Alan's 25 years!
