Ramsey Chain has announced that David Foden, its European Sales Manager, has retired after 13 years with the company. Foden’s replacement, Bob Hughes, joins Ramsey with experience in the Hollow Glass Container Industry, as well as power transmission products.
It is with sadness and warm wishes that Ramsey Chain announces the retirement of David Foden, its European Sales Manager. Foden has been with Ramsey since 2000 helping customers throughout Europe and the Middle East from his office in England. His last day was 31 December.
Foden’s leadership and keen sense of humour have been a tremendous addition to the international Ramsey team. Ramsey is indebted to his commitment to growing the company and propelling it to its present position in the market.
“At 16 years of age I left school and was accepted into an engineering company as an apprentice. In two blinks of an eye, here I am, 71 years of age, working for an American company, which I would never have dreamed of, and looking forward to retirement at the end of the year,” states Foden.
“I have enjoyed my life as an engineer, being involved in different industries. However I can honestly say that the last 13 years working for Ramsey Products Corporation have been some of the happiest and most rewarding of my career. Silent chain is something that gets into your blood.”
Foden also thanks the people he has worked with, “Over the years, I have made many good friends in all parts of the world. To all of those I say thank you for your time and your business. It has been a pleasure working with you. And of course, Ramsey is a team and supporting me has been a fantastic group of people who helped make my job so much easier.”
Foden’s replacement, Bob Hughes, joins Ramsey with experience in the hollow glass container industry, as well as power transmission products. This combination makes him an ideal person to take over this market.
“David’s retirement is our loss, but we are happy that he will finally get a long and much-deserved vacation after all his years of hard work with us. We all wish David the very best,” says Bill Hall, President of Ramsey Products.
