After 28 years with The Foam Company Ltd, Carl Ridpath has decided to retire. In that time, he has worked in every department within the company and had become everybody’s “go to “ man.
Carl, pictured with Chris Mike and Daphne Nash, had cause to remember both the good times,and the tough times and has been witness to the company’s metamorphosis from an upholstery fillings supplier, to a leading mattress manufacturer. His unstilting loyalty to the company has been very much appreciated by the family,as has his sickness record, four days off with a bad back being the total in 28 years service.
To encourage his plans to travel some of Michael Portillo’s TV Train journeys, Carl was presented with the book that accompanies the series, together with a copy of Bradshaws guide and a cheque for £500.
We wish him well in this new phase of his life.
