Tom Eakin celebrates his 80th Birthday

23rd October 2013 is no ordinary day at Eakins…. It’s the day that Tom Eakin turns 80!

For those of you who don’t know, Tom founded our company in 1974. Shortly afterwards, he developed the Wound Pouch™ and Cohesive® product ranges, which have become renowned worldwide.

To mark the occasion, we commissioned Emma Hastings, the daughter of one of our employees, to draw a cartoon of Tom. He seemed thoroughly delighted with the masterpiece and the other gifts from the staff. I’m sure you will join with us in wishing Tom many happy returns on his 80th birthday.
