Aircare employee, ambassador and friend clocks up 21 years of service.
When Heather Shipton joined the Aircare team in 1999, she never imagined for one minute that she would still be working for the same company some 20-plus years later. Over the years, Heather has been a true ambassador for Aircare. She has forged strong relationships with colleagues, customers and suppliers alike, always providing a professional yet caring service.
Heather joined the then 8-strong team in October of 99’, when Aircare was located in Darwin Court, Corby, a far cry from the custom-built premises they now occupy at Crucible Road. Working alongside colleagues and close friends, Sue Bennett and Wendy Bennett (now Hayward), together they were an intrinsic part of the company’s growth. In 2003 Heather was promoted to Sales Ledger & Purchase Ledger Manager and she remains in this trusted role today.
Heather personifies Aircare’s ethos; she cares. Her colleagues describe her as kind, funny, professional and a godsend!
Managing Director, Wendy Hayward said: ‘Heather has moved and grown with Aircare as the business has developed. Heather has been a trusted employee and personal friend to our family for over 20 years. She is a true ambassador for Aircare, always the first volunteer at our charity fundraising events and staff social gatherings. More recently, Heather has been a great support through the challenges of Covid-19. We really can’t thank her enough.’
Heather Shipton commented: ‘The strong values and high standards that run throughout Aircare have been the key reasons for me choosing to remain with the company for this length of time. I’m very proud to be a part of such a dynamic and successful team. I’d like to thank Sue and Brian Bennett for employing me originally, and also for the support of my Managing Director, Wendy Hayward and all of my colleagues, who are the best!
Finally, thank you to Aircare Compressor Services Limited for my lovely Long Service Award gift – it is just beautiful, very much appreciated and will certainly always be treasured.’
