A family firm is celebrating 45 years in business.

Wilfred Gibbons set up Gibbons Engineering Group in 1969 to repair and rewind electric motors.

The electro-mechanical products and services company in Woodrolfe Road, Tollesbury, now employs 25 people.

His son Martin is now chairman and grandson Matthew, Martin's son, is a director and sales engineer.

The company expanded from rewinding motors to selling motors and progressed to pumps, panel building, drives and other products.
