UNWIN SAFETY SYSTEMS DIRECTOR RETIRES
Mr Taylor joined Unwin in March 1997, when the wheelchair safety systems manufacturer was still based in Yeovil in Somerset.
One of Mr Taylor`s major achievements was to help Unwin move successfully to a new HQ with modern manufacturing facilities in nearby Martock. The place was gutted and transformed.
Mr Taylor said: ‘What a difference! Then we had round about 40 staff, now we have 70-ish. It`s given me an enormous amount of satisfaction to see the way that people have developed.
‘And there`s been such a big change to the sort of equipment we`ve got around us. Everything is now much more sophisticated and we`ve brought a lot of work in-house, like machining rail for example.`
What will he miss? ‘People, without a doubt. It`s such a happy place to work, with very good relationships. It`s lovely just to walk around the factory and get the smiles and the nods. I`ll miss the involvement.`
Andrew Creese, Unwin`s chief executive, said: ‘Peter has made an enormous contribution to Unwin`s success, developing people, refining production, setting up supply chains and just always looking for improvements. We wish him a long and happy retirement.`
Mr Taylor has been shadowed for the last six weeks by his successor Nick Coleman, 38, to ensure a smooth transition.
