Ice creams the order of the day!

26 July 2019

There is probably not a single person here in the UK, or in Europe for that matter, that has not had to deal with this week’s heatwave and, in many cases, record temperatures. Here at David Salisbury, we have been acutely aware of our colleagues working out in our factory and out on site installing our award-winning orangeries and garden rooms in the warmer than average weather.

While at the time of publishing this article things might have cooled down a little, we will certainly remember the heat of the past few days – and have concluded regular servings of ice cream definitely help!

Working flat out but time for an ice cream

With thanks to the directors and HR department at David Salisbury, a selection of ice creams and ice lollies have been served up to our factory and head office team each of the past few days.

Factory tour indicates scale of our business

Walking around our cutting-edge joinery factory is not only a really good way to get an idea of the scale of the business, it also underlines the sheer volume of orders and business we are currently outputting. After a record start to the year, with exceptionally strong new sales performance during the first Quarter in particular, it was noticeable how much work was going through the factory.

Prospective customers, who are considering an orangery or conservatory quote, are welcome to come to our head office for a factory tour (which can be organised with only a little notice) – these give a great insight into how we work and what sort of forward-thinking company we are.

Our current workload is testament to the continuing flow of new business but also the whole team that obviously has to work together cohesively to convert a sold order into a stunning orangery, delivered and installed on site and exceeding customer expectations.

It is this teamwork that is such a vital part of any business’s success but is a key facet of how we operate here at David Salisbury. Handing out ice creams and ice lollies might seem like a small gesture but they were certainly hugely appreciated and another example of the strong culture of this business.

After all, award-winning orangeries and garden rooms require award-winning teamwork….and regular ice cream!
