Why hello there chip pon, My name is alan I worked in the spray room dept at the DWI plant from when it opened i think july 1974 intil i was ceremonally sacked i was a SHOP STEWARD representing the TGWU , To my defence it was a brilliant set up and resulted in 4 of us losing our jobs that was in a cold January night shift 6.00pm to 6.00am shift . I wonder if you recall the problem that caused a lot of bother? IT was the concrete floor where the " decorators " stood " it used to vibrate and when those cans were turning at 900 rvm the print of the cocoa cola cans was blurred hence they shut 2 lines at a time down . Any way thank you chip pon for replying i have been asking on here many,many times for ex workers to come on to no avail until you wrote so again thanks for the memories oh and i do recall the yanks who we kinda assisted when they were installing the spraying machines they all came from Chicago they said not bad but a bit brash as we say in WIGAN .. THANKS AGAIN ...
