Imagine late 2009, 3 old school friends sitting round a table having a drink and deciding they ought to set up a business together as the country was coming out of recession (how wrong could we be) and there had to be opportunities to succeed.
So at the beginning of January 2010 the company was formed and operated from a small unit in Bulwell, Nottingham. With no customers and the economy still precarious the early days were challenging; however, an opportunity presented itself in July 2010 that we couldn't turn down - 30,000 pizza trays (10,000 per week) for M&S. Having never been given a contract of this size and not having the right kit, lets just say it was interesting; throughout the course of the job everyone pulled together to ensure that we were never late - no one thought we could manage but our can do attitude was the foundation of the business then as it is today;
9 years on and the same level of commitment from the team was required to produce the Tommies for the “there but not there” campaign to celebrate the end of the first world war. With the ongoing commitment and dedication of his ever expanding team, ensured a smooth delivery of quality product.
