During its more than 100 year history thousands of workers from the Dereham area earned their living at Cranes, later Crane Fruehauf.
Now some of its most loyal ex-employees have banded together in a bid to share some nostalgia with old colleagues.
The 25 Club - a group of ex-employees who worked for the firm for more than 25 years - are hosting a reunion and have issued an open invite to fellow former employees, who worked for the firm for any length of time, to come along.
Committee member Ted Booty worked for the company for 27 years before retiring around eight years ago.
The 72-year-old, who lives in Middlemarch Road, Toftwood, said: 'We just wanted to get people together for a social thing. There are people who I worked with for decades that I haven't seen for years and it's a chance to catch up.
