Did you work at the paint factory?

Have your say

STOWMARKET paint factory AkzoNobel, formerly known as ICI Paints, is inviting former members of staff to return to help it celebrate 40 years of paint production at the site.

On May 15, the factory, which employs 80 people, will celebrate its anniversary by throwing open its doors to former employees to go back and see changes and investments which have been made.

Site manager Steve Kelly said: “We are a close-knit company built on employee loyalty and commitment and we’d like as many of our former employees to share in our May 2012 celebrations.

“We’re really proud of what we have achieved and continue to achieve here at this site. This year is 40 years for Stowmarket, we’re still manufacturing paint here and intend to continue to do so.”

The company would like to hear from anyone who has family locally who may have worked at the site or if anyone has pictures or film of the site in its past days. Contact 01449 778047.
