Ken Court – Retirement
Ken started with Hubron on 29/3/2005 almost 13 years ago to the day.
Ken has worked all his time at Hubron as a process operator in the PMU. Where he fitted well with the shift teams.
Ken joined us from a company called Jackdaw Polymer in Littleborough, with experience in processing Nylon materials. Ken was pivotal in Hubron`s entrance into processing Nylon materials at the plant as he had the experience of running a strand line on these materials.
Ken has been working part time through 2017 in a job share with Noel and kindly agreed to stay on for an extra 3 months at Christmas to cover us while we trained a replacement.
Ken has chosen to retire early to pursue his hobbies which include motor sports.
Noel Stewart – Retirement
Noel joined the company on 24/4/1979 almost 39 years ago.
Noel started in the rubber presses where he worked for a number of years before being one of the first employees to become a process operator in charge of CPs (Farrel mixer) in the old PMU.
Noel is known for good operating skill and his contribution towards putting ideas forward for improvements.
Again Noel has been working part time through 2017 in a job share with Ken and kindly agreed to stay on for an extra 3 months at Christmas to cover us while we trained a replacement. Noel is slightly past his state retirement date and is now finishing to take a well-earned rest.
Ken and Noel are pictured below with Hubron`s Operational & Technical Director Craig Hodgkinson.
