DSL Systems celebrate 40 years

In August 2019, DSL Systems became 40 years old. To mark the occasion, DSL Systems’ team celebrated with their colleagues from the Feed and Grain industry at the Derek Randall Suite in Trent Bridge Cricket Ground last Thursday.  DSL showcased their latest feed mill control innovations during the afternoon along with historical control systems from the seventies and eighties. DSL’s guests also enjoyed watching Nottinghamshire playing Kent  in the County Cricket Championship which came to an early conclusion mid afternoon with defeat for Notts. This was followed by a banquet in the evening with our special guest Peter Shilton OBE providing a fantastic after dinner speech. Peter was very humorous and entertaining with stories from his goalkeeping career. Thanks to Alan Fletcher from A Shot In The Dark for the photography and Trent Bridge for hosting the event.
