Retiring But Not Tiring
Jan, a Trafalgar Veteran of over 30 years, will be saying goodbye to our company in February next year to embark on the next stage of his life: retirement.
Jan began work at Trafalgar on the 30th of June 1989 in Revesby, making first-aid kits, fire extinguisher, fire hose reel, and dangerous goods cabinets. However, Jan has proved himself a jack-of-all-trades over the years, by doing work such as creating brass access panels for Parliament House, in addition to his work on Trafalgar’s cabinet range. He has moved a great deal over the years for Trafalgar, going to Villawood in May 2000, again to Silverwater, then to South Granville where he will be celebrating his retirement.
“The quality of cabinets have improved vastly over the years,” explains Jan, which is owed to the loyalty and determination of its workers.
“Jan has been an outstanding employee. His contributions to Trafalgar have been exemplary and we will be sad to see him go,” states Anthony Hill, Trafalgar’s Production Manager. “The knowledge he has passed on to our apprentices and the next generation at Trafalgar will be appreciated for many years to come.”
Everyone at Trafalgar is grateful to have had such a dedicated worker, who has seen the
company grow and change throughout the years. “The last four years have been the best part of my
experience with Trafalgar” said Jan. “The people here make it all worthwhile”.
However, Jan’s partying days are not yet over; you will find him at the local pub enjoying a cold ’bevvy’ on a hot afternoon, as he escapes his wife’s suggestion of gardening as a new hobby in his retirement.
