Open for business
Dow Chemicals in King’s Lynn, UK, recently opened its doors to the local community with a site open day.
The event on Saturday 21 April was an opportunity for friends and families of workers, as well as community partners, to take a tour of the plant and see what the chemical manufacturer does and how the work carried out is invaluable in creating everyday products.
Hertel has worked at King’s Lynn since 1999 and was keen to get involved. Mark Dalgarno, Operations Manager East Anglia, Angela Jones, Area Administrator, and, supported by Bev Dalgarno, Site Administrator at ConocoPhillips in Seal Sands, were all on hand to help.
At Dow Chemicals, Hertel provides a range of disciplines including scaffolding, insulation and civils. Through work with sub-contractors, its responsibilities extend to labour supply, water coolers and support services.
Mark Dalgarno says: “With the long association Hertel has with the site the open day helped us to reinforce our position within the local community and show the value that we bring to the area. The event was a huge success and many people took away information.”
William Costin, Site Leader at King’s Lynn, adds: “We’d like to thank Mark, Angela and Bev for making our open day a great success. Their enthusiasm on the day, support and gifts to the attendees were greatly appreciated.”
