Our Team in the Spotlight
11st September 2018
El’scorchio! Yes, we can’t deny we have not had a good summer, with the added entertainment of the World Cup and our weather… it has been a memorable ‘Summer of 18’. It is hoped autumn will bring a little bit more sun before we have to say goodbye to our fantastic weather for the year.
As the weather heated up, so did our teams enthusiasm and motivation to complete the summer tasks and we want to say a big thank you to them for all their hard work in these not so usual Scottish temperatures.
We were delighted to kick the summer off with a win at the Dumfries and Galloway Business Awards, winning the award for ‘Most Promising New Business’ at this years ceremony. We were overjoyed that the hard work of our team in our first year was being recognised when we were up against some very tough competition. Our team have been dedicated to driving our business forward and innovating our processes to surpass our customer expectations and create a quality product.
Throughout the summer we have been busy completing a distillery project where we supplied and delivered over 1000 panels to clad the new building in the Scottish Highlands and Islands which has certainly kept our team busy and it was a great project for our team to be involved with.
We then launched our new range of precast concrete products which have been very popular after our launch at the Highland Show this year where we joined forces with Robinsons Scotland and extended their stand to house our new range of products – a great 4 days getting out and meeting our customers.
To house our new range of products we have also been very busy extending our site/factories and we have constructed a brand new factory and made significant improvements to our yard and stock areas to house all of our new stock. We have installed lifting cranes and created a brand new road up to our site and installed a gate to help with deliveries in and out of our new state of the art facility.
We also have a couple of keen golfers in the camp, two members of our production team have made the finals of a competition to win a place at the Masters! They are down to the last 52 teams in the finals playing at Blairgowrie in September and the winning team will get a holiday to America, playing 4 courses around Augusta and a chance to play in the Masters, Good Luck lads, we hope you make it!
We want to say a massive thank you to our teams who have worked very hard this summer to pull all of our projects together and complete all our expansion plans as scheduled.
