Will joined Midland Filtration back in 1987 as Richard Johnson’s first employee when he was still working from home, so he’s seen a vast amount of change over the 32 years he has been with us! His main task was to increase the customer base, but he also had to roll his sleeves up and get involved with the delivery and site-work side of things so was certainly kept busy!
Throughout the years Will’s main focus has been on the customers, and in he was given the title of Sales Director to acknowledge his efforts. He has developed some very strong relationships with a number of key accounts, many of whom have thanked him for looking after them so well and wished him all the best going forward.
As a small thank you to Will for his contribution to Midland Filtration he and his wife Helen were treated to a dinner at a local restaurant with some of his long-standing colleagues, and was suitably spoilt by the staff there with a celebration plate (above)! The following day was his last with us, and MD Richard Johnson (right) presented him with a gift towards which the team had contributed. Will thanked everyone, and went on to describe the early days at Midland – which were certainly a world apart from the multi-million pound Company we are today and raised a few eyebrows amongst the newer staff members!
Will is planning on keeping busy in retirement – gardening and giving time to the local branch of the Dogs’ Trust will both feature strongly. However before all that he and Helen are off on an Alaskan adventure – and who can blame them?! All the best Will, from all the gang – and come back and see us!
