Burton upon Trent, July 31, 2013 – A total of 44 employees from Pirelli’s Burton upon Trent and Carlisle factories have been recognised for their ongoing commitment to premium tyre manufacturer Pirelli.
Each year, Pirelli holds annual dinners to reward its employees who have worked with the company for a period of either 21, 30 or 40 years.
In 2013, six members of staff were commended for working with the Italian-based firm for 40 years and a further 23 employees were rewarded for 35 years service. Fifteen staff members were also credited for 21 years service.
As a special thank you to Pirelli’s long-serving staff, an all-expenses dinner was held for its Burton upon Trent staff at Dovecliff Hall Hotel on Friday 14 June. A special dinner for Carlisle’s long-service employees was held at Dalston Hall Hotel on Friday 28 June.
Pirelli UK Managing Director, Dominic Sandivasci, said: “Simply put, Pirelli wouldn’t be as successful as it is today without its extremely skilled and knowledgable workforce. It’s truly commendable that the company has so many employees being recognised for their long-service, and hopefully it is a reflection of a true affinity with the Company and a recognition that rewards follow that success. I would personally like to thank each and every member of our workforce who have been recognised at our annual dinners, both past and present. I hope that they can continue to work with us and share their wisdom with our newest and thus less experienced employees.”
