We welcome to the team Andrew Richards, keeping the business family run is important to us, so we are pleased to have Andrew, Ians brother on the team. He is here to run the Sales and site visit side of the business. With years of Sales experience he will be a great asset to the team.
What a different year this has been!
From the 1st April - 8th May we decided to temporarily close to keep our customers and staff safe. Our teams although working outside, work quite closely to each other, share vehicles and so we made the difficult decision at the beginning of April to down tools for a while, suppliers also shut which made it harder to get supplies.
We would like to thank all our staff for sticking with us through this time and our customers for their patients while we were shut.
We are now back working again with safety measures in place and following Government advise.
If you would like to book a site visit please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact page.
Thank you for your support.
December 2019 - The run up till Christmas!
Now we are getting to the end of 2019 its always a good time to look back at the year and apprciate what we have achieved, what we can learn and think about the next year and any changes we can make.
We have had a great year inproving the infrastructure of the business with the building of our workshop to help day to day running and maintaining equipment properly, this was achieved by Marc who really can build anything!
We have been updating our Health and saftey policies and continuing training to ensure our work is done to the highest standards in the safest way, we became Silver members of Construction line which is a platform that ensures compliance with health and saftey and standards are met. This is something some of our construction sites like us to be part of.
We now have Mark J who joined us in August on a part time basis, who has been amazing at getting all our Health and Saftey documents up to date and implimented. He also runs meetings and tool box talks on various Health and saftey topics to keep us all up to date.
Our team have been brilliant this year and worked very hard providing the friendly professional service that continues to keep our good name.
So to Harry, Ben, Charlie, Jason, Marc, Dave and a couple that have moved on to pastures new in the year, we thank you for your continued support and hard work and making Richards Fencing the family business we always wanted it to be!
Thank you to all past and present customers for your support and work you have given us throughout 2019 and to our suppliers who provide us with such great service.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year
From Sophie, Ian, Edith, Martha and of course Ned (the dog)
