With only a week to go before we’re able to shamelessly drink Bucks Fizz at 8am on Christmas morning, we have been reflecting on our achievements and the challenges we’ve faced in 2018.
With 2018 being our first full trading year, the challenges all new businesses must go through were present for much of the year. Thanks to several clients who were able to overlook the fact that we were a new business, we were able to secure several projects by Q2 of 2018.
Whilst previous industry relationships played a part in us securing these projects, our knowledge, passion and professionalism was clearly the deciding factor for many of our new clients. We are pleased to have successfully completed a number of these projects, with a few recently secured projects being the foundation of our order book in 2019.
Taking advantage of the slow start to 2018, we set about constructing our supply chain to ensure all of our partners were aligned with our core values. Using ‘tried and tested’ suppliers who were previously known to us, along with some well researched new additions, we have a supply chain that can assist us deliver even the most demanding projects that the future may bring.
The construction industry in general has had a tumultuous couple of years. With the terribly sad events of the Grenfell fire in June 2017 to the shocking demise of one of the industries largest builders at the start of 2018. Whilst our thoughts are still with all of the people affected, we look forward to some of the much needed reform that has and will continue to be developed following these tragic events.
With the continued support of our staff, clients, suppliers and sub-contractors, we are looking forward to developing our business further and delivering some fantastic facades in 2019.
From all of us at Alliance Facades, we wish everyone a very merry christmas and a prosperous new year!
