Bradford-based firm Klinger Ltd recently celebrated a combined ‘century of service’ of four employees, who have each been with the manufacturing company for 25 years.


The long-serving members of staff; Tony Coulwill and Beverley Barlow, and husband and wife, Dick and Jean Bodill were invited to mark the occasion at a commemorative dinner at The Three Acres Inn, Huddersfield.  Among the guests celebrating the group’s unique achievement were Managing Director Alan Bates, retiring Klinger Group CEO Frits Mühlenbruch and a number of fellow employees.


Managing Director, Alan Bates, was pleased to be able to highlight the role that it’s dedicated and highly experienced staff have played in cementing Klinger’s reputation as the world’s premier developer, manufacturer and distributor of superior sealing products.


Mr Bates comments:

“It was the Klinger Group’s privilege to be able to honour our longest serving members of staff. Tony, Beverley, Dick and Jean are a credit to the company, and between them have more knowledge of our Bradford operations than anyone! We hope we can persuade them to stay on for another 50 years at least.”


Klinger is the world’s leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of quality sealing products. The company operates in a number of locations across the country, with its main headquaters and state of the art semi-metallic gasket manufacturing plant on the Euroway Industrial Estate in Bradford.
