Keeping John’s legacy alive

Keeping John’s legacy alive

It’s that time of year which always reminds us of John Toon (Ex-chairman/ Managing Director Andy’s dad). John was involved with EPC for over 40 years and in that time, he developed true family values within the business and strong relationships with staff.

To mark the arrival of Spring and cheery days ahead, John would bring the team handfuls of daffodils. This tradition is continued by Andy each year.

We’re not exactly sure when it started but it’s become so natural each year that we’re keen to continue it and keep this memory of John alive!

As all leaders should be, John was always the first and last on site, setting a prime example for younger and existing workers at EPC.

John was an inspiration to us all, through thick and thin he remained a vigorous & intuitive leader. Whether it was his iconic lab-coat or cheeky smile John Toon has and always will be a significant part of EPC.
