2017 is drawing to a close and we are excited for the future. We hope that this year has been a successful happy year for you and your family.
2017- Year of Diversification
This year has been all about diversification for us. Our acquisition of Quality Blasting, in Stourbridge enabled us to add blasting and peening to our range of subcontract services. We have also launched a range of machines to be able to offer a more complete solution to current and prospective customers across different industries. Increasing our presence in the UK and global markets is important for our long term plans. We have had successes in increasing our presence in 2017 and is something we will continue to drive into 2018.
Growing a business brings its challenges and requires continuing adaptation to changing market conditions. Over the years, we have learnt that tailoring our products and services is essential to meet the demands of different industries. A great example of that this year has been in the Additive Manufacturing industry, where we have developed unique methods that have significantly reduced processing times and offers consistency and repeatability.
This year has seen some cultural changes within the business. We want to continue to create a positive working environment for our team. In 2017, we launched service awards and in 2018 we will be recognising and awarding our employees with monthly excellence awards.
We would like to express our appreciation to our valued customers; wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a positive start to 2018.
