Easispice Manufacturers Limited, situated in Chantilly on the periphery of Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland, is celebrating its 45th anniversary.

Founded by the late Karam S. Josephs and his wife Carmen Ramson Josephs, the company has evolved from its humble beginnings.

It has grown from a manual hand mill and coal-pot clothes iron being used in production to a first-class company, which is now a household name in Jamaica.

Easispice Manufacturers has risen above challenges proving the adage "hard work and perseverance will lead to success".

General manager Peter Ramson expressed his gratitude to the team of dedicated employees who have contributed to the overall success of the business.

He singled out the production team, line packers, machine operators, outlet staff, office staff, forklift operators, drivers and deliverymen as being integral to the business' operations.

Driver, Hubert Spence, stands tall among the staff as the longest-serving employee. He has been with the organisation since its inception 45 years ago.

"I have worked so long with Easispice Manufacturers Limited that I feel like the Josephs are my family, and they feel the same way about me," Spence boasts.

Spence's job tasks are critical as the drivers and delivery men ensure that the company's products reach distributors and its thousands of clients across the island on time and in good order.
