Mainline celebrates 35 Years in the industry and we are still going strong!Posted October 31, 2017
In May 1982 Keith and Carole Williams set up Mainline Tool & Plant Hire with just a few tools, a cement mixer in a small unit on Midland Road Industrial Estate. Today we have a purpose built depot with offices and over 10,000 square feet of outside space to accommodate our ever-growing fleet of access, plant and power equipment. This couldn’t of been achieved without the loyalty and support of our valued customers and the hard work put in by staff.
2017 marked our 35th year in the industry and to celebrate this marvelous landmark on 21st October we had a night of Motown, soul, live music, barbecue, dancing, and celebration. Celebrations started at 7.30 pm and went on late into the night. As guests arrived they entered into the bar area where they were served drinks while they socialized with staff, customers, and friends. Soulful music was the soundtrack for the night and after socializing over a few drinks the barbecue buffet was ready to be served. Guests could choose from a wide selection food filling up their plates with pasta, potatoes, couscous, beef burgers, lamb chops, sausages, pork, and chicken skewers. The barbecued food was then followed by a selection of delicious deserts.
Once bellies were filled, DJ Ronnie Radar played hits from the Motown and soul era, which soon enough got guests up on their feet as they started to vacate to the dance floor to show off their best moves. This was shortly followed with an exceptional performance from the live band, The Old Boys Network, as they played a selection of hits from the 60’s and 70’s which sure enough had guests singing along.
There was a welcomed break from dancing when director, Carole Williams, took to the stage to make a heartfelt speech looking back at the past 35 years and thanking customers, friends, and staff for helping to get Mainline to where it is today, it was a passionate speech that was met with a big round of applause. As soon as Ronnie Radar resumed the music the dance floor filled up with people dancing late on into the night.
