To give that date some context - 1983 was the year that Karma Chameleon reached number one, Margaret Thatcher was PM, Manchester United beat Brighton and Hove Albion in a replay to win the FA Cup, and Mo Farah was born!

Since Metro Rod first became established, the company has gone from strength to strength, and is now made up of over 40 UK franchises.  And here is some amazing news - out of all the franchises and hundreds of engineers, Metro Rod Bedford's very own Eamonn Ryan has just won the Engineer of the Year Award at the annual conference!
