Berg celebrates Keith Pavey’s 43rd year of service[ssba]
It is not often that a company can boast about such a long time in service but next month we will be celebrating Keith Pavey’s 43rd year with Berg.
Berg is proud of the fact that many employees remain with the company for so many years. “Without the dedication and hard work of our employees Berg would not be the company it is today” explains CEO, Derek Berg.
Keith Pavey began his career with the company in 1973. During the last 43 years he has had many responsibilities including capstan lathe operator, centre lathe operator and he was responsible for manufacturing axles for Wheelie Bins that were supplied through-out Australia. He has managed manual milling machines and in 1983, he began operating Bergs first CNC machine, one of the first machines in Brisbane. Throughout his career, Keith has kept abreast of new technologies and one of his greatest achievements has been running the most sophisticated and largest capacity machine tool in Queensland.
When asked what he enjoys most about working at Berg, Keith says “I enjoy working at Berg because of the varied work that we are capable of doing and the constant challenges this presents” He also says “I enjoy the friends I have made whilst working here and they will remain lifelong friends.”
Berg has built a reputation for excellence on the back of two generations of family passion which Keith shares. Shane Pavey – Keith’s eldest son – will commence his apprenticeship next year marking the next generation of the Pavey family at Berg. Shane has shown great determination and enthusiasm to follow in his father’s footsteps and we are certain he will excel.
Keith’s brother, Norm Pavey, also works in the Brisbane facility as a Production Scheduler. Norm commenced his apprenticeship with Berg in 2000. He has steadily grown with the business and is now in a key management position.
We would like to congratulate Keith and Norm on their outstanding service and dedication at Berg and we look forward to Shane joining the team in January 2016.
