We have always strived to promote a happy, friendly working environment for the staff so as to hopefully achieve a long serving, happy workforce that will ultimately benefit the customer by providing continuity and reliability. We are thrilled that 2 of our staff are in their 30th year of service to Tackwood and many more are in double figures, a major achievement in modern day industry we believe.
