Ma­rine Har­vest em­ployee nets 40 years of ser­vice

The Oban Times - - Busi­ness -

A LOCHABER em­ployee at Ma­rine Har­vest has cel­e­brated cross­ing the 40-year mile­stone with the com­pany – and has be­come the first per­son to do so.

Steve Bracken started with the com­pany when he was aged 24 on May 23, 1977, un­der Unilever, as a fish farm as­sis­tant, based at Lochailort.

The ton­nage in 1977 was 250 and the firm op­er­ated at three sites – Lochailort, Leven and In­ver­garry.

In Steve’s 40-year ser­vice he has held many po­si­tions work­ing in both Scot­land and on a sec­ond­ment in Sri Lanka.

He has worked as a site su­per­vi­sor, fac­tory man­ager, gen­eral man­ager and on tech­ni­cal sup­port be­fore tak­ing up his cur­rent po­si­tion as busi­ness sup­port man­ager, which he has been in since 2000.

Steve was joined by friends and col­leagues re­cently in Stob Ban where Ben Had­field pre­sented him with his long ser­vice award, thank­ing him for his enor­mous con­tri­bu­tion and ev­ery­thing that he has done and con­tin­ues to do for Ma­rine Har­vest.
