A MARALIN company are celebrating as one of their colleagues has reached her 50th year of employment.
Isabelle Kelly began her career with Bedeck on December 16, 1961, and has seen many changes during her time.
She joined the firm as a sewing machinist.
“The people I have worked with have all been very nice to me and I have really enjoyed my time with the company,” she said.
This must be true, as Isabelle has no plans of leaving Bedeck to retire.
Isabelle’s links with the company go back a long time, as her mother cared for the grandmother of the present Managing Directors in her later years in the original family hoome which is now used as a showroom.
Gary Irwin, joint Managing Director, said: “As well as Andrew and I holding great affection for Isabelle’s family ties to my grandparents, She in her own right has now given Bedeck 50 years’ loyal and dedicated service.
“She is only the second person in the history of the company to achieve this milestone, which very few others will ever achieve.
“Nothing is too much trouble for Isabelle and we are delighted that she wants to continue to work with us and, we hope, add many more years to her record.”
