Ultraframe Technical Training Manager Phil Wharf, has retired after a 26-year career company.

Phil said: “I have seen many changes in the industry and Ultraframe during my time here which I have been reflecting on recently as my retirement approaches. Some of the most memorable include our founder John Lancaster handing over the reins, exciting times when the company floated on the London Stock Exchange in 1998, and Brian Kennedy’s Latium Group acquiring Ultraframe in July 2006.

“Ultraframe has dominated a very competitive industry for almost 40 years, and I am extremely proud to have been a part of this for the last 26 years and have seen continuous product development throughout that time. I am very much looking forward to my retirement now, especially not ‘living by the clock’ and ironing shirts on a Sunday!”

It is estimated that during his time at the helm of the training department, that Phil has trained some 10,000 salespeople, surveyors and installers.

Marketing director Alex Hewitt said: “I would like to thank Phil for his hard work and dedication over the years. The knowledge that Phil has and has shared is incredible and he will be very much missed. We would like to wish him a very happy and restful retirement.”
