Long-serving Glasswells employee Robert Mead was handed an award for his dedication at the company’s annual dinner and dance.

Mr Mead joined the Saffron Walden branch of the business, in King Street, in 1976 and has progressed to be one of the family firm’s leading sales consultants.

He runs the town branch’s flooring department, providing a full service from visiting homes to measure and give estimates, to organising the installation and providing advice to customers that come in to store.

Mr Mead received his award for 40 year’s service at the Apex, in Bury St Edmunds, on Saturday, February 10.

Paul Glasswell, managing director, said: “Robert is a genuine carpet and flooring expert. He is superb in his rapport with customers and his performance from our Saffron Walden flooring department is really rather remarkable, he is truly masterful at making the most of every opportunity that presents itself. He is a wonderful, cheerful man and we have been so lucky to have him working for Glasswells for all these years.”
