Celebrating 80 Years of Tobermore

Tobermore recently celebrated its 80th anniversary and the launch of the new company vision.

The red carpet was rolled and champagne was popped as staff enjoyed an evening of fine dining and entertainment at the stunning Galgorm resort, Ballymena to mark Tobermore’s 80th Anniversary.

Celebrities David Healy MBE & Carl Frampton MBE attended the event and took part in a question-and-answer session answering questions from Tobermore staff whilst Cool Fm’s Pete Snodden hosted the evening.

Tobermore owner and Managing Director, David Henderson delivered a heartfelt speech noting how business began at Tobermore back in 1942 and how he envisions the future of the company. He gave thanks to his sisters who were present on the evening for their support throughout the years and commended staff for their continued hard work and dedication to the company.

Charitable giving is a core value at Tobermore and this didn’t go a miss at the company event. A charity collection was held to raise essential funds for the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal with a grand total of £2871.07 in donations which MD David Henderson kindly matched bringing the amount to an incredible £5277.14.

Commenting on the event, Tobermore MD David Henderson said:

“The event was incredibly successful both in terms of celebrating success and raising funds for a much-needed charitable cause.  Celebrating 80 years in business was the perfect opportunity to bring together our staff from across the UK and Ireland, allowing us to show appreciation of their hard work and dedication to our company.  People are at the heart of everything we do in Tobermore.”

The new company vision was launched alongside a series of videos that portray the key elements of the vision. ‘Transform Places & People. Through great products, & great experiences.’
