Long service tribute to Paul

We are proud to announce our truck driver Paul Eames has just completed 20 years’ service, whilst celebrating his 65th birthday!

When Paul joined Willshee’s in 1999 it was a much smaller business. He says: “When I started, I did some driving, but I also sorted waste and helped in the depot. In fact, occasionally, we would get a call on the in-cab radio to say that some calves had escaped from the family farm and could whoever was nearest go and help!”

Paul has no plans to hang up his truck keys any time soon. He says: “I still really enjoy it! I love driving all over the region – Derby, Coalville, even down to Birmingham sometimes. I will carry on til I drop!”

Paul has lived in Woodville all his life. He is married to Tracey and they have four children between them. In his spare time, Paul is a passionate biker and he rides his Yamaha MT-01 1700cc to work every day come rain or shine.

Willshee’s managing director Dean Willshee commented: “As a family business, our employees have always been especially important to us but loyalty like Paul’s particularly stands out.

“A huge thank you to Paul for his dedication and commitment – it is massively appreciated.”

Well done Paul!
