Well, the festive period came and went and now we are all back to reality, taking a giant leap into the New Year and hoping it turns out to be another year full of exciting projects, prosperity and health.
As we embark on 2017, we are looking forward but reflecting on how much we have grown and achieved over recent years. Lovell Stone Group like so many other companies in the construction sector, has flourished and it seems like we have much to look forward to.
We saw some amazing projects emerge and complete last year and it seems that the South West is a hot bed for some creative and outstanding schemes this year too. For us, it’s business as usual, making sure we provide quality bespoke stone to customers, old and new.
At this time of year, it’s also good to sit back and consider how to grow and improve a business, ensuring that we continue to take the lead in investment and staff so that we can simply get bigger and better!
When we took over the lease at Hartham Park, a huge amount of investment and time went into this incredible underground quarry where we are extracting Hartham Park Bath stone for customers throughout the UK. That investment, planning and commitment is more than paying off now and on the back of this, we have big plans for this year across our network of quarries, making sure we retain and develop the great reputation we have, one that we are fiercely proud of.
So, what does 2017 hold for us? We will be participating in next month’s Surface Design Show in London and taking a stand (E40) at the Natural Stone Show in London (April). We look forward to seeing some of you there.
Our staff are at the core of our success and so we will be looking to expand our team and take on an apprentice at our Hartham Park quarry. There will also be further investment in equipment and how we run the business to make it as efficient as possible.
There is a lot to look forward to and we start this new year with optimism and excitement and we hope you do to.
