We’re over halfway through 2015 and with the economic climate changing like the weather; it’s onwards and upwards for many organisations, especially in the North East. It’s great to see the tide turning and many businesses embracing change to develop new working practices to improve business growth.
Securing and retaining clients is one of the challenges in business and recently, we’ve had great success with a number of high profile tender wins and local business key accounts. We’re not usually one for shouting about our business success but following a half year review, we thought we’d share some recent good news.
We’re sure every business has good news to share and we don’t think it’s a bad thing to toot your own horn every now and again!
You may have read about our recent large project with Northumbria Hospitals, helping move several departments from three hospitals to their new base in Cramlington, you can read more about that project
Other recent key accounts include a law firm, large local college and a medical equipment supplier. The work includes various aspects of removals and relocating as well as storing documents and archiving thousands of items securely.
A couple of these firms had rather poor existing record keeping so we’ve supplied them with a dedicated archivist to organise and record all of their data and now they have an up to date spreadsheet of each individual file in every box. Recording data in this way requires a keen eye for detail and ultimate accuracy for easy retrieval and correct future destruction. We invest heavily in training and development of our archivists and they have been with us for many years, giving our clients the confidence their data is secure and recorded correctly.
Finally, a trip to Norway is on the cards to work with a local University to relocate paintings and sculptures back to the original artist in Oslow. With our expertise in moving fragile and specialist items; we’re very excited to be working with such a wonderful artist.
We hope the second half of the year is as fruitful as the beginning and we wish you all a productive and successful end of year.
