Steve said, "Bill's loyalty over the past 50 years is a testament to his character and by naming this facility after him I hope that we are not only honouring Bill's many years of service but also inspiring the next generation of employees to exhibit similar qualities."
Bill attended the ceremony with his wife and son and said, "I have enjoyed my career with the company and am honoured to be recognised in this way.
"I can got out to Yatala now and swing past and see my yard, which is nice."
Bill started his career at Graham Evans on 26 August 1960 and worked on various projects throughout NSW and Queensland. In 1982 Graham Evans was acquired by Abignano Pty Limited, which later became Abigroup.
In 1988 Bill took up the position of overseeing the plant yard which over the years has provided an invaluable service to the company.
