After 11 years at Fastbox, and 28 years in the cardboard packaging industry John Doran, better known to his customers as Dr Box, has decided to retire and spend more time with his family. John has been an asset to Fastbox and has played a significant role in its growth and development over the past 10 years. John will be sorely missed both by his loyal customer base and by his colleagues who have this to say…
“I can still remember the day John walked into our offices at Climax Works 11 years ago, seeking a job. At the time Fastbox was run by family members but we knew we needed help to progress the company. So on 2nd June 2008 John started work for Fastbox Ltd. John has been a huge instrumental part in the success of the company from the moment he started. John is a larger than life character, a ‘’ one off ‘’ as they say. My gratitude to him for all his endeavours, commitment and success is immeasurable.
What his customers and colleagues have to say about him is a true testament to the man. I thank him for everything and wish him all the best in his retirement” Jonathan Fuller
“I have had the absolute pleasure of working alongside John for 10 years and known him for nearly 20 years. Over your working life you meet people that you look up to and who leave a lasting memory on you, and even on rare occasions you meet people that you can describe as a legend. John is definitely one of those people, and the influence that he has had on my time in the industry cannot be understated. I wish him many years of happiness in his retirement and will miss him dearly” Mark Jeffs
“I have known John all my packaging career, as a supplier for 10 years and a dear colleague for the past 4. You don’t meet many people in this life that you can truly call your friend but John is definitely one of them and I will miss him terribly. John is a true legend and I wish him all the happiness he deserves in his retirement” Sarah Bird
“There was never a dull day in the office working with John. He is truly one of a kind and I am absolutely honoured to have known him for 8 years as a colleague and friend. John has left lasting footprints at Fastbox not only for the work he has done but also just by being John D. He may be retiring from the industry, but I am sure his name will be mentioned and recognised in the stories that people tell each other! I wish all the happiness to John in his retirement” Liene Basko
