Latest Press Releases from the Forest Group
Please join with us in wishing Leo the happiest and most fulfilling of retirements. Tinged with personal sadness, the Forest Group family give Leo the warmest of send-offs to the next chapter in his journey.
Leo began working life in the early 70s at Darwen Tool and Engineering and was awarded the Apprentice of the year in Mechanical Engineering at Leesona Holt. From there he went on to Crown Paints, ICI, Acme and then Gamko.
Leo joined Forest in 2009 from Gamko and has been with us ever since helping evolve our systems and methods into the slick machine it is today.
To have worked for 50 years for so few employers is testament to his skills, personality and work ethic and we are proud to have had him with us all these years contributing to making us the sectors leading refrigeration contractor.
On behalf of everyone, thank you, you will be greatly missed.
