A local cricket club, Cae Glas, were the recent victim of mindless vandalism to their newly purchased wicket covers. However, they were thrilled when Fabdec stepped in to help free of charge.
One 8m section of the recently purchased cricket covers was bent and twisted, causing it to buckle. Other half-moon sections of the frame suffered similar damage.
“The structural elements in question are made out of stainless steel and required specialist equipment and expertise in order to get them back to their original shape, form and function,” explained Ian Moult, second team player and volunteer groundsman.
After learning of the club’s predicament Allan McFarlane, Operations Manager, confirmed the company would offer their services. The result? Two Fabdec employees arrived on Monday morning to assess the job and transport the damaged sections back to the factory in Ellesmere where they were re-shaped back to their original form and delivered back all within 24 hours.
Andy Griffiths, Cae Glas Club Chairman, said “After being on the receiving end of a number of acts of vandalism at the club recently, we are very grateful to Fabdec for helping us out in this manner. Special thanks to Allan McFarlane and his colleagues for coming to the club’s rescue.”
