Our Nottingham Plant & Tool Hire Manager Ian Harris is celebrating his 30 years long service award this year. 

Ian joined us at the tender age of 26. He has overseen many changes at the branch, including our transition from handwritten systems to a fully integrated digital back-office.

Richard Meeks, Frank Key Group Plant & Tool Hire Director, presented Ian with his hard-earned award: “As well as being a loyal member of the business and hard worker, Ian is a fantastic person to be around. He provides us with many laughs and brilliant stories - only a few of which could be repeated in print - and is a crucial part of our team. Congratulations on your pearl anniversary!”

Ian says: “A lot has changed in 30 years. When I started Oasis topped the charts, Germany dominated the World Cup and John Major was Prime Minister. The business has expanded significantly during my time here; the branch team has doubled in numbers and we now offer a range of plant and powered access equipment as part of our hire fleet, ranging from diggers and dumpers to scissor lifts and cherry pickers.

“I look forward to seeing how the business continues to evolve and continuing to be part of the fantastic, ever-growing family business”.
