we're getting bigger!

So, for a little over 3 years Kamran and myself have squeezed every last square foot of space out of our ground floor office/workshop in the city centre along with a workshop numpty or two...it's honestly looked like a workshop with a couple of desks in it for the last year due to minimal space as we outgrew the manufacturing area...not the impression we want to give when looking to extract premium rates.

With the need to run another wide format machine to keep up with output and have a more professional office and separate customer area we've taken the upper floor of our unit now that it's been vacated by the traffic wardens...(yeah, we shared a building with them and got our fair share of tickets outside our own front door)...so as of Monday the whole downstairs is becoming a workshop and store.

...here goes nothing!!

Good luck with it David, should be much more productive with more space.

I'm looking for larger premises myself at the moment for the same reason,

Well done mate, good to hear. We're in need of space to after expanding from 1800sqf to 2700sqf just over a year ago but there's nowhere right now that I've put a shipping container next to us to store stuff to create space, we got a nice big laser cutter arriving next week we have to squeeze in :lol1:

Enjoy the new space, I know I would :wink:

Cheers

Warren

P.s. Nice work on that other thread :P

Cheers guys.

We've moved into the offices although parts of the unit remain a building site...not enough hours in the day.

Will have it all complete in the next couple of weeks and be doing a wee buffet type thing for some of our clients / prospective contacts.


Post up pictures once it's all done.

Best of luck with it David.

By "Badge" you do of course mean "Nose" don't you, Martin?
