Cape Town plant RPC Astrapak Thermopac bids farewell to William Hartzenberg. Hailing from Mitchell’s Plein in the Western Cape, William has been working as a truck driver and took care of the general deliveries for the past 10 years. His peers say that William knew the Cape like the back of his hand, and his kind nature and commitment to his work schedule held him in good rapport with everyone that he met.

At 55 years of age, William would be considered by many as being too young to retire, but this is not your average retirement as he is respectfully stepping away from his work to look after his wife who has taken ill. We commend and support him on his difficult decision, as what he is doing is honourable and it certainly sings true to his character.

Thermopac bids farewell to a man who is forever pleasant, cheerful, smiling and always taking the time to greet those he comes across. William has even taken on the role of teaching his replacement and although he has left big boots to fill, we believe that all his knowledge will be taught in the time he has with his trainee. William always took pride in his work and truly enjoyed what he did. His work ethic is acknowledged and appreciated.

We wish William and his wife all the very best for their time together. You will certainly be missed at Thermopac. Thank you for your years of hard work and dedication to your team and the task at hand.
