Marc Quilton inducted into Bloor Homes' Silver Club after 25 years with the company
A dedicated contracts manager has been given a special honour after celebrating a quarter of a century with a Bury St Edmunds company.
Marc Quilton, 42, has worked with Bloor Homes for 25 years, working his way up from apprentice carpenter to site manager before being appointed as contracts manager 10 years ago.
The father of three was inducted into the company’s Silver Club and presented with a watch by founder John Bloor at a dinner at Bedford Lodge Hotel in Newmarket.
“I’m very proud to become a member of Bloor Homes’ Silver Club,” he said.
“The company has been a huge part of my life and it’s lovely to be recognised in this way.”
Marc received the honour after following in the footsteps of his father Kevin, who also became a member of the Silver Club after rising to regional managing director of the company.
“My father worked for Bloor Homes for more than 30 years and it seemed the natural thing to follow in his footsteps - you could say it’s in my blood,” said Marc.
“I love my job and I take a great deal of pride in building people’s homes. The passion is still there after all these years.”
And this isn’t the first honour Marc has received during his time with the company, after receiving a Pride in the Job Award from the National House Building Council for a Brandon development in 2005.
“Bloor Homes is a fantastic company to work for and the drive that comes from the top of the business to deliver a quality product really shines through,” he said.
“I’m very grateful for the opportunities that I have had to progress my career and it’s great to be part of a company that has exciting ambitions to grow.”
