A member of staff from Russell Roof Tiles’ Lochmaben site has been recognised as Employee of the Quarter after going above and beyond his regular duties.

Davy Porteous, a key loader and forklift driver for Russell for 26 years, received the award after his exemplary service over the last quarter. He received a certificate and £150 in retail vouchers.

The Employee of the Quarter scheme is in place to reward exceptional staff displaying outstanding services.

Bruce Laidlaw, production director at Russell, said: “During Quarter 4, Davy went above and beyond his normal duties by working extended hours to cover a long-term sickness in the department.

“His attitude, attention to detail and availability in his position was key in him being recognised for the award.”

The Employee of the Quarter scheme was introduced in 2017 to maintain Russell’s collaborative company ethos, and to recognise their staff’s continued hard work and dedication.
