Happy New Year 2015

I am pleased to wish a Happy New Year to all David Salisbury staff and customers. I hope you have all had a great Christmas and that 2015 will be an even better year for everyone. Everything is in place for a good 2015 for the company, and I will be commenting on over the next few days on how 2014 ended.

Happy New Year

As often in the run up to Christmas, it has been a hectic period. It is always the busiest time of the year for us as everyone is focussed on what can be achieved by year end and our customers would like things finished, if possible, or at least tidied away for Christmas. The end of 2013 was no different, if anything it was even more challenging.

The Future of The Conservatory

It’s been rather a long time since my last entry, during which I have been to Australia and back. Not that being in Australia is any excuse, as I was online virtually every day. Since my return, there has been a crazy pace of work – especially the preparation for next year’s marketing campaign.

Breckenridge Administration

I was shocked but not surprised to hear this morning that Breckenridge Conservatories has entered an insolvency procedure and called a meeting of its creditors. This is the kind of company that gives our industry a bad name. It is less than than five years since an earlier incarnation of this company with the same ownership went down owing a lot of money, only to be reborn days later after a “pre-pack” administration.
