Senior managers and staff of a Horsham company have celebrated its successful first year of business with a special birthday cake.

The specialist groundwork and civil engineering distributors Rudridge enjoyedcake, shaped like a Rudridge bulk bag.

A year ago the branch at Howards Estate, Handcross Road opened with six members of staff. Now there are 11 full time employees.

Horsham branch manager John Chesson said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our first year of business today. The past year has been hard work and not without its risks but it’s great that we have now almost doubled our staff to keep up with demand and are looking forward to the years ahead.”

Managing director Robert Rudd added: “On behalf of everyone at Rudridge, I would like to thank those who helped celebrate this fantastic first year for the branch and those who made it all possible, the hard working staff. We have been so well received into the Horsham community and I look forward to many more prosperous years to come.”
