Marshall Tufflex - Time Capsule

Amber Rudd today (Friday, June 2nd) took time out from her busy schedule to join leading Hastings employer Marshall-Tufflex in burying a Time Capsule to mark its 75th year in business.

Ms Rudd, Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Hastings and Rye, was given the honour of placing the capsule in the grounds of Marshall-Tufflex’s Head Office and manufacturing base in Churchfields Industrial Estate, watched over by delighted management and staff of the multi-million pound business, which employs more than 150 people and trades in 40+ countries.

She said: "Marshall-Tufflex has a long and successful history in our area, delivering significant employment and benefits to our communities. I was delighted to bury this Time Capsule, and I would like to congratulate Marshall-Tufflex on a very happy 75th birthday and send my best wishes to them for many more anniversaries to come."

Marshall-Tufflex Chairman Kevin Page thanked Ms Rudd for taking the time to celebrate the anniversary. "Amber’s willingness to help us mark this important occasion was most appreciated, particularly given we are just days away from a General Election. It feels quite fitting that she is helping us archive a little piece of history at such a momentous time for the country."

The capsule contains a selection of artefacts including company literature, newspaper/magazine clippings, photos, a 3D printed model, messages from staff, the new £1 coin and a selection of product samples. It is planned to be retrieved on Marshall-Tufflex’s 150th birthday in 2092.

The Time Capsule is just one of the many ways in which Marshall-Tufflex, founded by Harold Cirket on May 28th, 1942, is celebrating its birthday. A summer party is being held for all shareholders and employees past/present and their families. Plans are in place for staff to do 75 company-donated days of charity work and company book ‘The First 50 years and On To the Millennium’, is being updated for release later this year.
