Bendalls Engineering officially celebrated their 125th anniversary on Friday 27th September 2019 at an event at The Halston Aparthotel that included employees from both Bendalls and their parent company, Carr’s Group Plc.
“We’re incredibly proud to celebrate 125 years in business,” said Managing Director, Sean Saunders. “The celebration made it possible for us to say thank you to all our employees, without whom our success would not be possible.”
Following a drinks reception, Sean opened the evening with a speech where he thanked the entire team for their hard work and dedication. This sentiment was further conveyed by Graham Hartley, Managing Director, Carr’s Engineering division who not only praised the team at Bendalls but also the dedication of Sean, who started his career as an apprentice at Bendalls and who became Managing Director in 2018.
The celebratory event was hosted by local compere, Ian Milburn of IM Events with further entertainment by Carlisle band Hardwicke Circus.
“Although the Company has made many innovative changes, its principles have remained fundamentally the same over its long history” said Graham. “Bendalls’ success has been underpinned by the ability to adapt to meet the changing needs of its customers and the positive mentality of its loyal employees. We look forward to the next 125 years.”
