Back to our anniversary posts! Calvin Davies looks back on his time with Logistex:
“I have been with the the company for 23 years, although it was a bit different when I joined- I think I was employee number 12 in the family-run IO Systems, in two knocked-together houses in Dunstable, and Cleco was just our biggest customer. Projects were a bit different then, with weeks or months spent on site (Mars and BT stand out for me) – great for building team spirit and camaraderie, not so good for family life. We have it so easy now!
I did once try to leave, in 2001 when my wife got a 2 year job in Chicago, but my boss at the time suggested I had a go at teleworking. Many of us work from home, at least some of the time now (though rarely from 4,000 miles away), but I felt like a bit of a pioneer back then. Hats off to the Cleco IT Department for making it work.
I’ve stuck around since then because Logistex are good people to work with and for. There’s a lot more than 12 of us now, but it still feels like it’s run by people who know what’s going on.”
