54 NEWS PCL ‘saves Christmas’ for Mark Two employees When Bolton kitchen and bathroom company, Mark Two Home, made around 200 staff redundant after Tesco terminated its contract with the firm late last year, the festive season looked bleak for Mark Two’s staff, who were told they would not be paid before Christmas. Enter Radcliffe conservatory roof company, Phil Coppell Limited (PCL) which stepped in to ‘save the day’ for four of Mark Two’s former employees, who accepted jobs at PCL, based in Cemetery Road. PCL has reportedly grown to a multi-million-pound business with more than 100 employees since its launch in 2009. Karen Ackerley, sales and marketing manager at PCL, said: “Upon hearing of the plight of the Mark Two personnel, PCL tried to come to their aid. “We first approached one person from Mark Two who we knew had been made redundant, and have now hired four Mark Two staff in total. We are expanding all the time, and it is likely several more Mark Two employees will be joining us soon.” Daniel Buck, who had worked at Mark Two for almost three years, is now PCL’s customer operations manager, while Karl Beresford is the company’s new transport manager after being a Mark Two employee for 22 years. Also given jobs were Emma Swarbrick, a Mark Two employee of three years who is now a PCL customer care manager, and Mica Swarbrick, now a general office administrator, who worked at Mark Two for two-and a half years. Emma, from Bacup, said: “It was quite shocking when we lost our jobs at Mark Two, especially at this time of year — so it was great news when I was offered the position at PCL.” Anyone from Mark Two who is seeking employment can call Kev Ashcroft at PCL on 01706 828733.
