TECHNICIAN Steve Hunter is among 100 people who have all received a long service award for 25 years at commercial vehicle distributors Crossroads Truck & Bus and Hartshorne Group.
Steve, who lives in Harthill, Sheffield was presented with his award by cricket hero Matthew Hoggard MBE at a prestigious event at Trent Bridge cricket ground in Nottingham.
The HGV technician, who is based at the Crossroads depot in Rotherham, said: “Crossroads has always been a fun place to work, where everyone gets on together to get the job done. It’s the camaraderie with the people you work with, and the relationships with customers, that make it special.”
Over 60 people attended the milestone celebration, all of who had completed 25 years or more service with either Crossroads Truck & Bus or the Hartshorne Group. Both companies are distributors of commercial vehicles on behalf of Volvo Truck & Bus.
Every guest at the event signed their name on a timeline wall that traced the history of when the companies were founded back in 1968 (Hartshorne Group) and 1956 (Crossroads Truck & Bus).
Hartshorne Group and Crossroads Truck & Bus Managing Director Martin Cronin co-presented the awards with Matthew Hoggard.
Mr Cronin told Steve and his colleagues: “It’s down to your passion, care, friendship and perseverance that we have a fantastic business of which we can all be proud.”
Steve, 60, is married to wife Julie and has three children.
