The Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull, Councillor Mary Glew was on hand at Ideal Boilers to help celebrate the manufacture of its millionth boiler in the award-winning Logic range, as it came off the production-line on Monday October 13th.
The Lord Mayor toured the factory with Ideal’s operations director Doug Lloyd and met some of the staff, including longest-serving employee Melvyn Simpson who joined Ideal in 1962 when he was 15 years old and has worked for the company for 52 years.
Ideal’s Head of Marketing, Carrie Young said: “We were delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull yesterday to celebrate the production of the millionth Logic boiler this month with us.
“We’re continuing celebrations with our staff and loyal installers. Each Ideal employee will receive a lottery ticket as a gift from the company and we will be running an online free prize draw to win a Logic Boiler for our installers.”
The millionth boiler will be going to independent charity, the Mercia Therapy Centre, based in Coventry.
