With combined careers of over 60 years at KANE, we said a sad farewell recently to two stalwarts of the Company who have both decided to retire.
The last exhibition of the 2018 season proved to be as good as the first which was all the way back in May 2018.
Congratulations this year go to Mr Bobby Bell of P.Blackhall Ltd. in Edinburgh.
Many congratulations to KANE Atherton Service Engineers Luke Hudson and James ‘Jimmy’ Hughes for achieving their HNC in Electrical & Electronic Engineering.
We look forward to seeing you in 2020.
All good things come to an end and all at KANE would like to wish Rob Wiskin a happy retirement after over 25 years of service to the Company.
