Give us one of your funniest memories at Armorgard…

Justin: The funniest memory I have is when I scared Neil very badly…  I had removed the gas struts from inside a TuffBank TBC5, so the lid didn’t have an assist when closing. Neil was right behind me when it closed - let’s just say he did not expect it!

Pete: My funniest memory has got to be when I sneaked up on my colleague and made him jump out of his skin! His reaction was priceless.

William: One that comes to mind is when our colleague Dan came back from helping spray some FlamBanks red. He was so proud of himself until he looked down and realised he’d ruined his black shoes by spraying them bright red!
