Alumet’s National Construction Manager Graham Hindley


When Alumet’s National Construction Manager Graham Hindley retired after 45 years in the industry, he did it in style; Not just a few drinks after work for Graham – he hired the Royal Yacht Britannia for the evening!

Graham celebrated his retirement by inviting work colleagues, friends and relatives for a sumptuous meal on board the Royal Yacht, harboured in Edinburgh.

Graham has spent his working life in the facade industry, starting as an apprentice in the drawing office at Henry Hope and Sons in 1966, in fact Graham still has his first pay slip showing his earnings of £6 per week! He joined the Southam based Alumet Group in 2001 and earlier this year celebrated 10 years at the award winning company.

As a thank you to the people with whom he had worked with over the years, Graham invited the entire Board of Directors (and partners) from Alumet along with several Directors from Main Contractors with whom he had also become personal friends.

The Alumet Group CEO Gary Summers said “The whole evening was a once in lifetime experience that will live in the memory for many years to come, Graham was very popular with everyone at Alumet and will be sadly missed. He is one of the old breed of Construction Managers and he is an amazing character” Gary’s son Blake will now fulfil Graham’s role.

Not wanting to leave out the rest of the Alumet workforce, Graham also held a pre-retirement party at Henley in Arden golf club near his Warwickshire home. The lunch was incredibly well attended with work colleagues from past and present joining Graham to celebrate his working life and achievements.
