Allan Hemmings, retiring managing director of Hird has completed his final work day on Friday with a large send–off on Friday evening attended by all of Hird’s employees.
Now aged a very youthful 67, Hemmings handed over to Philip Hird after 18 years with the company, having joined from PTP Platforms in 1993.
Hird said: Allan has played a major role in the business from day one, helping us to expand our powered access fleet to the strength we have today. It has been an honour for everyone at Hirds to have worked with him and he will be greatly missed. We would like to wish him all the best for his retirement along with a Big thank you for the commitment and service he has offered us over the years. I am looking forward to taking over the day-to-day running of the business and hope that I can follow in the footsteps of Allan.”
