As a way of celebrating and reflecting on the last 10 years, we asked a few of them to share some of their favourite memories from the last 10 years working at Mercedes-Benz South West.
Will Ross – IT Manager:
"The dealership refurbishments in 2012 are quite memorable. Everyone 'camping out' in the showroom during winter, fuses blowing due to all the little heaters plugged in. In Plymouth, we had two portacabins perched on top of each other for office space, the entrance up an infeasibly long external staircase due to the slope of the car park.
I remember satisfaction from seeing the current Site 5 offices being built and completed, a project many of us had worked hard on for a long period of time."
Rick Metcalfe - Local Business Development Manager Taunton:
"There has been a lot! Memories that come to mind straight away would be presenting prizes for our golf days, and telling customers they are off 'To the Home of Golf', St Andrews, a day out money can't buy. As a big golfer myself I have always enjoyed mixing my work with my hobby.
Of course, the new product launches are always memorable and I've seen many over the last decade. It's always great introducing customers to the lastest Mercedes-Benz products with the most advanced technologies."
Alan Tait - Warranty Advisor Head Office:
"I have had a couple of stints at Mercedes-Benz South West, the highlight for me being a trip to the Mercedes-Benz factory in Sindelfingen, Germany. The factory tour was unbelievable and the sheer history within that whole site is quite spectacular."
Again, we would like to thank these team members celebrating their 10 year anniversary for their continued hard work and service over the last decade. We look forward to working with you for many more!
