If, like me, you tend to view the “News” page of a website as a mechanism for gauging if the company concerned has any discernable pulse, you might be forgiven for assuming from the evidence of our own site that all at Greenbarnes expired sometime around February.
However, nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is that we have been busy. So busy in fact that some of the routine tasks like updating the website have had to take a back seat for a while. So what has been keeping us so occupied?
Well, to start with, in February we said goodbye to Chay Leach, our Technical Sales Assistant, who after four years sterling work left to pursue a career in a totally different direction. As many of you who had come to know Chay will appreciate, he is hard act to follow.
The diverse nature of what we do, together with the fact that much of it has a bespoke element, ensures a steep learning curve for anyone joining us. This was certainly the conclusion reached by Chay’s replacement, Andy Brewer, not least because he joined us at precisely the moment when we experienced an explosion in requests for quotations! Five months on, we’re delighted to report that Andy has survived his “baptism of fire” and is busily engaged in answering your sales enquiries and generating quotations.
If February and March were about sending quotations out, the months which have followed have been all about work coming in. Contrary to what might be expected if you’ve been listening to Robert Peston and his fellow pedlars of gloom, we have enjoyed the busiest start to a financial year in our 25 year history. Starting with our biggest single job to date, for a leading charity, we have seen a steady influx of work from a variety of sectors, including some prestigious individual projects, of which we will write more in future postings.
Against this hectic background the ongoing process of product development has also continued apace, with several new items scheduled for launch later in the year including additions to the Vitrum ranges of poster cases, notice boards and monoliths one of which is illustrated above.
So, as you can see, despite the prolong news page silence, we are most definitely alive and kicking!
