Here are some rare photos of the insides of the Brenco factory taken in about 1973 that have been kindly donated by Bob Clements.

Bob worked for Brenco from 1970 - 1979 and started off as a carpenter and joiner spending a few years making the cabinets. After that came promotion to the metal shop as charge hand and then soon after he aquired the top job as foreman.
