Andrew Dawson, Site Manager at the Stowmarket Factory, said: “We’re really excited to be celebrating this huge milestone with the people that make the factory what it is. Despite the everchanging trends in consumer preferences, Stowmarket has always kept on top of the demand for paint, something I’m really proud of.
“We’ve seen huge developments at our site over the years, such as becoming one of the most automated AkzoNobel factories and using state-of-the-art technology like Laser Guided Vehicles. Imagine what Stowmarket will look like in another fifty years! Thank you to everyone who has played a part in Stowmarket’s history.”
To celebrate the site’s birthday, AkzoNobel hosted a fun day at Stowmarket FC, giving its 100 current employees the chance to share stories on their time working at the site with ex-colleagues, friends and family – with a special guest Madison, the infamous Dulux Dog.
