Visy farewells Wal Perkins

  • Posted on Thursday 6th, August 2020.

Packaging and resource recovery business, Visy, wishes Wal Perkins, Weighbridge Operator at Tumut, all the best as he embarks on his retirement.

Perkins started his Visy career 19 years ago in his early 60s.

"Our workforce comprises a diverse age range, with roughly a third each Gen Y, Gen X and Baby Boomers – though at the end of the day we’re all just part of the Visy team," Visy said in a statement.

"While Wal has said he will miss his time at work having a joke with the drivers and his other colleagues, he’s looking forward to spending more time with his lovely wife, children, grandchildren and great grandson. All the best Wal, from all of us here at Visy."

Anthony Pratt, Executive Chairman Pratt Industries and Visy, said Visy has no statutory retirement age. "Congratulations Wal."

"I value that Visy has built a business that does not discriminate against age, race, gender or culture," said Perkins.

"Getting this job when I moved back to the country has allowed me to not only support my family but also the opportunity to make friends."
