by ercol on January 8, 2015

Just before the Christmas break, we celebrated two 40 years service awards for brothers Brian and Pete.

40years

Both Brian and Pete joined ercol in 1974. Brian (on the right of our Chairman, Edward) joined in the October of 1974 where he started in the Bandsaw shop and 9 days later became an apprentice in Polishing where he’s been ever since.

Brians favourite ercol collection was the Windsor collection, but his favourite design is the two seater Evergreen chair which have both been in production since he joined..

Pete (on the left of Edward) joined in the summer of 1974 and he’s been working in Cutting since he started because he enjoys the variety and “his days are never the same”. Pete’s favourite collection, likes his brother Brian is also ‘Windsor’ . They’ve obviously got very similar tastes, because Pete’s favourite design is the Evergreen chair! Pete also has a Pandoras Box coffee table in Old Colonial at home, which was given to him as a wedding present from ercol.

We’ve looked through our archives back to the 1970’s when Pete and Brian joined and here are a few of our favourite ‘very 70’s’ photos.
