Over the past few years the company has grown from strength to strength, they where in a bad place from previous poor management but have grown, have stability and a focus. Better systems and people... are working together not just within a team but inter department team working. Good communication although there is still room for improvement. Health and safety is at the front of every thing, the company don’t just talk the talk with this but they walk the walk as well.

Some employees are still bitter about pre ious management and are living in the past, making them a thorn in the side of everyone who wishes to grown, change and succeed in the future market place
