Chris Richards is a second generation company man – following his Dad, Frankie, into the business in 1983 as an Apprentice Toolmaker at Hirwaun. Aberdare born and bred Chris moved to the “new”/current Magor site in 2002. Chris is seen below celebrating his Service Award.
“Chris had a great technical grounding in his career, progressing from Apprentice, through Toolmaker to respected and recognised Section Lead and ultimately Team Leader”, says Sean O’Brien, Managing Director. “This great technical grounding and experience base provided fantastic foundations for the next phase of his career where Chris has built on his expertise in the commercial arenas – developing a well respected and well earned reputation for his work both in quoting and procurement. In autumn 2018, Chris took on the new role of Accounts Manager, coordinating Magor’s activities in these two business critical areas”.
When asked for a few words Chris said “ Thanks to everyone, its great being part of a great team here at Magor. Let’s hope the next 35 years are as good as the first!”
