We’ve moved….but not very far!
This summer we moved into our lovely new offices in Crown House, just around the corner from our original unit on Bingswood Trading Estate.
How things have changed! Many years ago we started our business from the bay window of our bedroom. We used to close the curtains over the desk to shut the “office”!
In 2005 we moved into an office in Chinley (above Jacksons Carpet shop to those who know the area). It was just Carol and Claire in the office/stores, with Rob, Nick and Steve “on the tools”.
A couple of years later we moved to 38a Bingswood Trading Estate in Whaley Bridge and uttered the now famous words “so much space, we are future proof, we’ll never out grow here”! Indeed for a few years we rattled around, we shared the space with an electrical contractor and, other than the complete lack of windows, we were happy!
The years passed and we steadily grew. By 2018 we were bursting at the seams! We’d added mezzanines (still no windows!), we’d hired containers, we’d squashed desks into impossible spaces and had resorted to “hot desking”.
And so to 2019! It was time to move. We had been looking for a couple of years but nothing was ever quite right, and then Crown House, right on our doorstep, became available.
We have completely refitted the front area and made fabulous offices and meeting spaces. Importantly it’s also given us space to set up a dedicated training room, complete with alarm panels and bench testing areas. This means we can continue to grow and train our engineers in the wide range of equipment that we sell, plus to keep up to date with technological developments in the industry.
We love it! It’s so bright and spacious…with many windows! We are all very excited to be in our new home.
