Phil Davies announces retirement after fantastic 55 year career

As we celebrated our 25th year in business on Thursday, we honoured Phil Davies on the night as he announced his retirement, a wonderful 26 years since founding the business back in 1996.

Our Managing Director Tony McDonnell spoke fondly of Phil on the night and presented a few special gifts from our board of Directors Gemma Davies, Peter Lyke and Richard Lewis.

Tony commented: “Phil Davies has long been known as the absolute gentlemen of our industry, he’s a man who has dedicated 55 years of his life to his profession and his craft. Phil’s been a great mentor and is also a true friend, it’s been an absolute pleasure to firstly work for him and latterly alongside him for the past 20 years.

I have learned so much from Phil over the past 20 years and in that time he has helped me to grow both professionally and personally. I am indebted to Phil for the opportunities he has given to me throughout my career and I will be eternally grateful for the faith shown in me to take the business forward. We all wish Phil a long, healthy and happy retirement with Jen and the family.”

On the evening, we even created our very own cocktail in honour of Phil and suitably named it ‘The Gentleman’.

We’re sure you will join us in wishing Phil a long, healthy, and happy retirement after a fantastic 55 year career where Phil has dedicated himself to his profession and his craft whilst creating opportunity for many aspiring engineers.
