Longstanding employee at Allen Newport Ltd, Mike Withey, has retired after almost 39 years with the company.

Mike, who was born and bred in Norfolk, began his working life as an electrician and joined the company in 1978 as sales manager.

Mike’s easy going manner helped establish an impressive list of customers as he helped grow the company’s local market in Newmarket and Bury St Edmunds.

In 2013 the business moved from its base in Fordham to the quarry at Cavenham and Mike was instrumental in setting up the office and a new computer system.

Managing director, Richard Stevens, said: “Mike has been such a loyal servant over nearly four decades with us and he will be sorely missed - life in the office will be just a little bit quieter, and quite a lot different. His dedication and commitment to the company has been exemplary.”
