The past 15-months has been a rollercoaster of highs and lows for the team at Ralspeed. We have had to adapt like every other business to whatever Covid-19 has thrown at us. Yes, we have lost turnover and yes, the pandemic has affected all of us at Ralspeed, but our team has continued to work every single day to come out the other end without too many bumps and bruises. Thanks to the commitment of our team, we are busier than ever.
In the last few days we have been reflecting on 2021 and thought we would share a few of the great things that have happened at Ralspeed since the beginning of the year.
First and foremost, we welcomed back our team and even recruited a new member of staff into our busy workshop. Within a week of the advertisement going live, the post was filled, and we now have an extra pair of hands to manage the workload. We have also welcomed back our wonderful cleaner whose smiley face has been missed and our marketing consultant who is working hard to keep us visible and active!
A huge congratulations to our ex-employee Leah who is expecting a baby in August – we can’t wait to meet the little one. Our service engineer Craig and his fiancée Zoe have just welcome baby boy Ollie into the world – congratulations to them – their 6th child between them (busy bees)!
Jonny our Technical Sales Engineer, and Craig, our Service Engineer both proposed to their girlfriends!! We now have two Ralspeed weddings to look forward to. We love a good ole knees-up at Ralspeed – just need a hat…
From a business perspective, our Safe Contractor accreditation has been renewed and our panels have been load-tested in line with Health & Safety requirements. Going forward, all company vehicles will be replaced with hybrid and electric vehicles, in line with Ralspeed’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and our hire panels have been well used these past few months. We even have some ex-hire panels for sale.
Ralspeed remains a Covid-free environment with workplace testing available to all our staff. Since the start of the pandemic, we haven’t had a single case of Covid among our staff or their families and this is down to the full commitment of our team!
That sums up the first part of 2021. We hope you will agree that there is light at the end of the tunnel and, like all businesses, the team at Ralspeed are moving full steam ahead into Summer, onboarding new customers and looking after our very loyal existing customers. We couldn’t have made it without you!
