FOUR dedicated employees at Winsford based UK Container Maintenance are celebrating 10 years of loyal service with the nationwide container repair and refurbishment company.

Head welder James Degville, director Ben Connett, head of machinery maintenance Dereck Kidgell, head of machinery maintenance and truck driver Cezary Narolewski, Truck Driver marked the impressive milestone with a celebratory on-site team breakfast.

Truck driver Cezary, 38, joined the company in 2009 as a site assistant, washing bins and successfully worked his way up the ladder.

UKCM funded his fork lift truck and class 1 licence to help him achieve his career aspirations and follow in his father’s footsteps.

Cezary said:“I always wanted to be a truck driver because my dad did it for over 40 years. UKCM has given me the opportunity to progress my career and broaden my skills.

"I’m delighted to be celebrating my 10-year anniversary with them."
