Paul Dix retires after 48 years

Paul Dix joined the Didsbury Engineering team as an apprentice way back in February 1965 at Didsburys first factory in Rusholme.  After serving his time, Paul took two short breaks before returning and serving 36 years straight. Paul was also a part of the team who helped Didsbury Engineering move to their bigger factory in Levenshulme, Manchester in 1970.

Around 1983 Paul became Charge Hand for 7 years before earning promotion to Shop Floor Foreman in 1990.  During this time, Paul was also the caretaker for the factory and lived in the company house on Barlow Road for 4 years.

In 1996, Paul returned back to the tools in the CSU department and was later promoted to Team Leader around 2007.  From here Paul rounded off his 48 year working life and hung up his tools to take his much earned retirement with his lovely wife Joyce.

Paul, you will be missed by everyone at work and we hope you drop in to visit from time to time.

All the best, from everyone at Didsbury Engineering Co.Ltd.
