Although much of Kirkpatrick hasn’t changed significantly in over 160 years, there’s always something new going on within our team, in our factory or with our products – which you can keep up-to-date with right here.

Retirement is the end of an era

Retirement is the end of an era

September was an emotional month here at Kirkpatrick, as we wished a fond farewell to one of our long serving employees Trevor.

Trevor was one of the first members of the Titley family to work at Kirkpatrick. His brothers, Alan and Kevin and his wife Polly still work here. If we go further back, Trevor’s dad, Bill, also worked here. Trevor started work at Kirkpatrick over 20 years ago. After a short break when he left to pursue a different career path he returned to work here until his retirement.

For the last 10 years Trevor has worked as one of our talented grinders in Kirkpatrick’s machine shop and had the crucial task of ensuring the high standards our products are renowned for.

Trevor has been a valued member of the team and all at Kirkpatrick would like to give a huge thank you for Trevor’s dedication and outstanding service over the last decade.

Despite now being retired, Trevor has not yet adapted to retired life and still wakes at 5am every morning, providing a lasting reminder of his working life here at Kirkpatrick.
