Dedicated Sony UK TEC staff rack up almost 800 years’ service

Dedicated Sony UK Technology Centre staff who have worked a combined total of almost 800 years have been recognised at a prestigious awards night.

Thirty nine members of the Pencoed factory have been honoured at Sony UK TEC’s annual Long Service Awards’ event thanks to their continuous devotion.

The awards night, held at Pencoed House, in Pentrych, recognised staff who have reached significant career milestones of between 10 and 35 years.

On the night staff and their partners were treated to a three-course meal, entertainment from a magician, along with a live performance from the Ipop band.

They were then congratulated by Managing Director Steve Dalton OBE who praised their continuous innovative thinking and hard work.

He said: “This year’s award-winning staff have devoted a combined total of 770 years’ of service to Sony UK TEC – which I’m sure anyone would agree is admirable.

“Their dedication to the company and endless hard work have helped to shape the facility into the award-winning business it is, and for that we can’t thank them enough.

“I would like to congratulate them again on behalf of the company for reaching these impressive milestones.”

This year one staff member achieved 35 years’ of service, while two reached the 30-year mark. Thirty one have worked for 20 years; one achieved 15 years’ service; while four have reached 10 years’ service.
