Colep loses valued colleague

Colep announces with deep sadness that we have lost a much loved and valued member of our team. After a short natural illness José Delgado passed away in hospital on March 22nd.

José worked at Colep for most of his career and this year was his 25th year working at Colep. In his role as Commercial Director in the Packaging Division of Colep, José was an incredibly respected professional, widely known in the can making industry, not only for his passion, experience and knowledge, but also as a wonderful family man with a calm, gentle, open attitude and a respect for others in everything he did 

Francisco Rodrigues, Managing Director of our Packaging Division: “José passing will leave a big hole in our team, and the Colep group, but we are thankful for the many years we had the pleasure and honour to work with a true professional, a true gentleman and a true friend”. 

The Colep flags at all sites were flown at half-mast as a sign of respect.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathy go to José’s family at this very sad time.
