Overcoming hurdles, going for gold!

Overcoming hurdles, going for gold! Well we are 6 months into the year and we’ve seen extremes of weather with sweltering heat and hose-pipe bans being imposed, but then lifted when deluges of rain and flooding ravaged much of the country. The one consistency though is that Safestyle sales are still flying, fantastic!

Holiday season is well and truly upon us but during this time standards are never allowed to slip: we need to deliver all orders on time and error free, ensuring our customers continue to receive the impeccable service they always do and expect. This is the time when we see if all the time, effort and training invested in developing our people has paid off. Now is the time for them to stand up and be counted.

Over the last month we’ve encountered a couple of mechanical issues on some key pieces of equipment which really tested the team down here, but they all rose to the challenge and customer service was in now way interrupted. It was not easy, with Operatives, Foremen, Engineers and Managers all switching shifts, doubling back onto nights, working weekends, basically whatever was required to get the job done. This was reminiscent of a swan on the water gliding along with the support functions working like mad underneath to keep it going. We had to fly Engineers over from the continent, put suppliers on stand-by, etc. We weathered the storm well, all the pre-planning and recovery plans all paid off with no compromise in the quality and service people expect from Safestyle, so well done and thank you to all involved. We have an amazing team of people who are prepared for just about anything.

Over the coming weeks and months we will be working through our innovation funnel and finessing any plans we have to further enhance our double glazing products and improve efficiencies within operations. This will enable us to keep ahead with the latest cutting edge glazing technology, leaving our competitors playing catch up and will underpin Safestyle position as the number one domestic supplier of windows and doors for the UK. Watch this space for developments!

All the Safestyle Installation branches and Service Engineers are keep the feedback coming, with every single comment and improvement idea read and considered, some are implemented and some are kept for a more appropriate time.

Things are continuing to go well as we go into the holiday season but we need to manage the distractions of the Jubilee, Euros and Olympics just round the corner. Commodity prices seem to be going through the roof at the moment and this needs to push us to further increase our focus on the war on waste. If this is at the point of survey, input, data processing, production, delivery or installation we always need to get things right first time, every time. We’ll continue to drive down waste figures and focus on exceptional levels of customer service, meaning we will continue to be successful where the competition is not.

Finally, we are looking for supporters in one of our biggest fundraising events to date! Safestyle Manufacturing and Logistics are going to do the National 3 Peaks Challenge, to raise money for our four charities... and we need your help!

On Friday 6th and Saturday 7th July 2012, our brave men and women will be rising to the challenge for charity, scaling the highest peaks in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scarfell Pike) and Wales (Snowden)… all in 24 hours!

Our are aiming to raise as much money as possible for our 4 nominated charities via our JustGiving.com pages:

So please dig deep and send your contributions and sponsorships via one of the Just Giving pages above. Your support in this venture will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
