Does anyone recall when it used to be 'British Celanese'?

Posted by: dougie (3548)  Report abuse
I started working there for Reeds Corrugated Cases in 1959 the year it changed over from British Celanese,

Pennywise, if you work there or have worked there at any time you may like to look at this video I made in 1992, thing will have changed a lot in 25 years --Click here--then go full screen

I thought it was 'Metal Box', in between being British Celanese, and Reeds Corrugated Cases.

Is my memory playing tricks on me?

Don't forget GB 25 years ago you could walk round the machines having a chat why drinking a cup of tea like your brother in the video,or me making a video for that matter

I got on with your Wilf better than you'll ever think, even after he finished working at Reeds,he was only a work mate to me but a brother to you

Yes everyone that worked at Reeds for a few years would get to know Steve
