Members of staff at Tewkesbury based Tungum Ltd, are celebrating more than 120 years of combined service.

Established in 1933 in Cheltenham, Tungum tubing is a cost effective and reliable alternative to stainless and super duplex steel alloys, and is used across the oil and gas, shipbuilding and dive industries.

Operations Director John Zbihlyj and Stores Supervisor Dave Kavanagh are the longest serving members of the team, with a combined 59 years of service, followed by Managing Director Ian Johnstone, who joined Tungum in 1998.

Next in line is Ian Rickard, Technical Sales, and Sean Hammond, Sales & Marketing Director, who have clocked up 31 years of service between them, while Alison Keen, Credit Controller, marks nine years at Tungum.

The company is continuing to expand its team following the appointment of Ruben Muro, Vice President of Sales USA, in 2015 and Mick Hopkins, Technical Sales Engineer, in 2016. More recently, they have welcomed Sales Administrator, Hannah Robinson, who joins Tungum from an events management company, along with new Stores Operative, Dave Rawlins.

Ian Johnstone commented: “Over the past 19 years, we’ve seen a lot of change at Tungum, including our move from Cheltenham to our current location in Tewkesbury in 2006. The team has grown and developed, and the wealth of experience and knowledge relating to the industry sectors in which we work allows us to deliver a total solution for our customers.

“It’s a privilege to work as part of such a committed team that works hard to contribute to the success of the business. I look forward to continuing to see Tungum grow in the years to come.”
