Celebrating 50 Years of Springfield and our many Long-Lasting Relationships which define our passion for Loyalty, Mutual Trust, Reliability and Consistency

This year officially marks 50 years of Springfield, and what a fantastic 50 years it has been!

They say time flies when you’re having fun, and for Springfield, the past 50 years have definitely been just that!

To celebrate this remarkable milestone, we hosted a party to thank our dedicated employees, valued customers, and reliable suppliers who helped get us to where we are today.

Celebrating Our Dedicated Employees

Behind every successful, longstanding business are those who work tirelessly behind the scenes. They are the people who bring Springfield to life and have helped make it what it is today. Many have even been with us for decades, transforming their roles into lifelong careers.

A huge thanks to all our employees past and present, a number of whom we show here.

Thanking Our Valued Customers 

Since the very beginning, our aim has always been to understand our customer’s needs and provide solutions that exceed their expectations. Through this approach, we’ve fostered relationships with returning customers that have truly stood the test of time.

Appreciating Our Reliable Suppliers

Our relationships with our suppliers have allowed us to provide exceptional solutions confidently and consistently for our customers. From the early adopters who believed in our potential to the long-term partners who’ve stood by us for the entire 50 years, your loyalty has undoubtedly contributed to our success, thank you.

We have over 20 years of trading history with this Company – Albion Sections, suppliers of our galvanised Steel sections.

MG Cabins representatives, including John Careless, a relation of Lyndsey and family – we do like to keep it all in the family!

The Entertainment

The rest of the Whiskey Chasers who entertained the party with a great eclectic mix of pop covers

Evidence of the party spirit the band created with their excellent quality and playlist – Here Lyndsey and her dance partner were demonstrating where Springfield are heading in the next 50 years – onwards and upwards!

The Magician

Andrew Dean the magician for the evening who stunned us all with his sleight of hand and high quality performance – Here he surprises Tony Mather and Katie

Andrew manages to remove Keith Hynes watch without his knowledge. Keith is  our Project & Technical  Manager. Keith has no idea how he did it but glad to report he did get it back!

The Scene

Below are a selection of the superb imagery and decorations on display supplied by the hotel to remind us all of the purpose of the celebration and help the occasion even more special.

Here is a selection of confectionery available to all at the part containing all manner of candy treats on a custom build stand manufactured by Graham and Andy in the Springfield workshop.  The Hotel was so impressed they asked to buy it for use at other events….. so we let them!
