随着J金莎app客户端CB准备标记其75thbirthday tomorrow there’s one family with an extra reason to toast the milestone after notching up a staggering 600 years’ service to the company.
The Boot family started its long association with JCB in 1949 when Bill Boot clocked on for the first time at the company’s factory in Rocester, Staffordshire. In the years that followed, nine of ten of Bill and his wife Lucy’s children went on to work at JCB. In total 27 Boot family members – including nine grandsons and three great-grandsons have followed in Bill’s footsteps – registering a staggering 600 years’ combined service to JCB.
The milestone has just been reached as JCB prepares to mark its 75th anniversary on October 23rd– the day in 1945 that the late Joseph Cyril Bamford founded his business in a lock-up garage in the Staffordshire market town of Uttoxeter.
Today the late Bill Boot’s legacy continues as 11 members of his family still work at JCB – including five of his grandsons and three of his great-grandsons.
比尔的儿子鲍勃，81岁，居住在斯塔福德郡的Cheadle，1956年开始在JCB上工作，临时合同 - 并留在近44年。金莎app客户端他说：“这是一家已经改变了这么多的公司，但很多事情都保持不变。它可能有一个世界四个角落的工厂，但它仍然基于75年前在斯塔福德郡开始的价值观。“
Bill’s grandson Gary Boot, of Uttoxeter, 58, of who retired in September, said his family were very proud of their JCB links. Gary, who started working for JCB in 1986, said: “I always wanted to join from an early age. My dad, Dereck, would come home and tell us stories of the company and Mr JCB and that sparked my interest. I’ve made so many great friends and have so many memories of the place. It is amazing to think of how many years’ service our family has put in – 600, it’s astonishing.”
Steven, of Rocester, added: “Being identical twins makes it difficult for our colleagues, but to be honest, there are so many Boots I find it difficult to keep up myself on some occasions!”
“Knowing that dad, grandad and great grandad all worked here really does make me sit back and think. I’m really not sure what our family would have done for a living if it wasn’t for JCB. I have a six-year-old daughter and my brother Daniel has a six-year-old son. So, you never know, I wouldn’t be surprised if they decide to follow in the family tradition.”
Bill Boot and his wife Lucy – who worked in the JCB canteen – had nine sons and a daughter and nine of the children – Tony, Dereck (correct), Ken, Bob, Bill, Dennis, Les, Ron and Ruby – went on to work at JCB followed by grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
