Pat’s been here for 25 years!

In 1989 the world witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall, the events of Tiananmen Square, Moscow’s revolution, Reagan’s message, the Internet big bang, the Simpsons and many more historic events.

Historians say that 1989 truly was one of those years that the world shifted on its pivot, but in our history the most pivotal event was that Pat joined Tangent Self Adhesives to work in accounts.

25 years later and Pat is still putting her heart and soul into the company, which is an incredible achievement….or prison sentence as she might say!

She’s seen and done it all here, short of running the machines.

We owe an awful lot of our success to Pat and we can’t really say thank you enough, what we can do is make song and dance of it on our blog.

When we started Tangent Self Adhesives in 1980 we never imagined that we would still be a success 34 years on and a big chunk of that is down to Pat and our other excellent staff members who put in hard work and commitment to the cause everyday.

There are plenty of puns that we can drop in Pats direction, all related to double sided self adhesive tapes…but in 25 years, she’s probably heard them all.

Thank you Pat!
