The summer 2021 newsletter is out from Glastonbury building contractors Melhuish and Saunders, and includes updates on the company's projects and a message from the managing director as he marks 21 years with the firm.
Darryl Mitchard started at Melhuish and Saunders in 2000 as a plaster labourer as a temporary stop gap before pursuing a career in sport and leisure - or so he thought.
He has progressed from a plaster labourer to plasterer, then to contracts management, to contracts director, and now managing director.
In the newsletter, Darryl writes: "Over the years there has been numerous changes and improvements to the company and in the last four years since becoming managing director, I have been able to develop Melhuish and Saunders further with the help from a very supportive and dedicated team.
"One of the key drivers for me, in my managing director role is to get a great work life balance for my staff.
"I want my staff to enjoy coming to work and the challenges we face, and deliver amazing services and products to all our clients.
"We want our clients to be excited to work with us and have their expectations exceeded with the level of service and the final completed project."
The newsletter also highlights new faces who have joined the company, including company buyer Robert, who has replaced Colin Jones.
Colin retired at the end of June after working for Melhuish and Saunders for 19 years.
Darryl said: "I want to thank Colin for his loyalty, vast knowledge and experience, and being a key team member of Melhuish and Saunders - we all wish you a long and happy retirement."
Updates on projects include the completion of the Lawrence Weston Medical Centre, and the continued alterations and refurbishment work at Strode College in Street.
