01/01/2017 - Happy New Year

So, thats it for 2016… and, what a great year its been.

Behind the scenes development

2016 has been a real stand out year for us, a year that has seen us grow and develop behind the scenes more than ever before.

Over the past couple of years we have gradually refined the coordination between our product range, trade orders and bespoke projects. A trial & error balancing act that we have continually developed and improved - well, in 2016 we found the correct balance and over the past year a vast majority of everything that we do is being completed, within the given schedules.

Plus, over the coming months, the new systems which we introduced in the Autumn will continue to be refined - resulting in more efficient processes throughout 2017. This should ensure that, even though we continue to grow & expand, throughout the year (even during our busy periods) all projects will be completed on schedule.

Shows & events

In 2016 we also rearranged a couple of Classic Mini shows in our calendar (we dropped two shows from previous years and added one new show), as we continue to work out which shows work for us.

And looking ahead, in 2017 we are actually planning on dropping a couple of other Classic Mini shows from our calendar (including MITP 2017), but - we will also be adding a few Classic Mini shows that we haven’t traded at in the past (we are looking to trade at between 6 and 8 Classic Mini shows in 2017 - which will be more than ever before).

In addition to trading at more Classic Mini shows, we will also be trading a number classic & modified car shows in 2017, for the first time - including Trentham Transport Festival & Ultimate Stance.

So, here is to looking ahead, welcome to 2017… let’s buckle up and enjoy the ride.
