40 Years of Service Innovation

Thinking locally, operating globally

Chairman's Message


Over the past three years, our teams have focused on 'working smarter' in relation to suppliers, customers, buy/sell margin and non value-add costs and resources, latterly employing the Pareto (80/20) principle e.g. 80% of our profit coming from only 20% of our customers – so making sure that we don't become 'busy fools'!
