25 years and still going strong


Silver Anniversary

25 years with Sinclair & Rush – well done Shane

On the 25th May, 1989, twenty five years ago, Shane Bone started employment as a machine operator with Sinclair & Rush. Since then, he has developed his career and become an expert in the industry of plastic dip moulding, and attained the position of Operations Manager.

We wondered what else happened 1989:

Margaret Thatcher was PM in Britain whilst in the States Ronald Reagan handed the keys over to George H.W. Bush.

Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, The Bangles and Prince were popular in the discos; and Batman, Lethal Weapon II, Back to the Future Part II, Honey I Shrunk The Kids and When Harry Met Sally were showing on the silver screen.

Nintendo began selling the Game Boy, Microsoft launched Office, and Sky TV launched in the UK.

It was also the year of The Marchioness Disaster on the Thames, the Hillsborough stadium disaster and the 747 crashing on the M1.

But on the up side - Shane joined Sinclair & Rush

Happy Anniversary Shane – here’s to the next 25 :)
