News & reviews
A wonderful news story came to us recently from one of our customers….
Tel: 0115 944 5555
Advanced Roofing & Cladding (Derbyshire) decided to celebrate a milestone birthday for the Managing Director, David Hartshorn, by taking one of his first rubber melters from a rusting heap, it was purchased from Horrods’ in 2004 that David would not part with, and turning it into a surprise that he could be proud of, and just look at that pride! Louise Hunt, Operations Manager told us; “It was in such bad condition, I wish I’d taken before pictures. Our MD, David Hartshorn was never going to part with it so, for his 60 th Birthday we have decided to make it a feature, rather than leave it tucked behind some storage cabins. So we have had blasted and re-sprayed in our Advanced orange colour – not sure if the top part was black originally, but spray man said it would break up the colour for our display.” Like Horrods, Advanced Roofing & Cladding is a family run and owned business. David has his family working with him; Lisa the FD (wife), his daughter Olivia (Accounts Assistant), Charley, his son, Junior Contracts Manager, and Louise, Operations Manager (sister-in-law) We were very moved at David’s affection for that first Rubber Melter, considering when it was made, our father, Terry Horrod (1940-2009) was still at the helm.

Celebrating a milestone is always important. We at Horrods would like to wish David a very happy 60th Birthday!
The Advanced Melter, sitting outside the business will soon have a place inside. Thank you, Louise for letting us know. We really do appreciate it, and it is particularly lovely to have a colourful piece of both our companies history so proudly displayed.
MAC AGM came around again! Our family were front and centre celebrating another year and catching up with colleagues, clients, and friends. A very interesting and funny speech was given by the former England cricketer Alec Stewart OBE too!

It’s June already, so it must be time for the summer. And June also brought with it, the MAC AGM, seems like only October since we all joined together to reward (be awarded, we are still delighted!) and mix with friends, colleagues, and customers!
