Bond It sales rep retires after nearly 20 years

Published: 11 July 2012
The sealants and adhesives manufacture is bidding farewell to one of its longest standing employees, Alastair Fergusson, as he announces he is to retire from the business.
Mr Fregusson joined the company in 1993 as a sales rep for Scotland before becoming Scottish area manager.

A familiar face to many in the builder's merchant and DIY sector, Mr Fergusson has been instrumental in driving Bond It's success north of the border and across northern England, said the firm. Over the course of his career, he has successfully developed a large and growing customer base for the manufacturer's products.

Mr Fergusson plans to spend his retirement indulging his passion for travel with his wife, Jean. Both have already travelled extensively to far-flung locations, including Japan, and the pair has now drawn up a list of future places to visit.

Speaking of Mr Fergusson's retirement, Bond It managing director David Moore said: "Alastair's retirement brings with it mixed emotions. On the one hand we're delighted for him and Jean and wish them all the best for their retirement. On the other we're sad to lose such a long-term and valuable member of our team. Alastair will be missed and we'd like to thank him for his many years of hard work and dedication."

Mr Fergusson added: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my twenty years with Bond It. During that time, I've worked with some great colleagues, some great products and some great customers. The business has evolved enormously since I joined it back in 1993 and especially so over the last 10 years since becoming part of Seal It Services. I'm sure it will continue to go from strength to strength and I wish the team the very best of luck for the future."

Bond It plans to announce the appointment of a new area sales manager for Scotland imminently.
