A farewell drink for the retirement of Gaston Voeffray26/04/2012


Gaston entered PEG in 1972 as a civil engineer. The projects that he worked throughout his career were mainly cement projects. However he has also been involved, to name only the main ones, in the construction of industrial carpentries in Algeria, the upgrading of the waste incineration plant of Cheneviers in Geneva and the district heating "CADIOM" in the same plant of Cheneviers.

As a token of our appreciation, Gaston has received a PEGLEX, a watch designed by PEG in limited. All his colleagues and former colleagues wish him an enjoyable and prosperous retirement…even if Gaston will probably come back sometimes for replacements on site.
