As 2016 is rapidly coming to an end, we all start to reflect on all that has been going on in the last 12 months. It seems like only yesterday we were all laying on our sofas on the 1st of January 2016 probably feeling slightly worse for wear, promising ourselves that THIS would be the year to get fit, give up something and definitely stick to our all new year’s resolutions. Now were only weeks away from welcoming 2017, ready for Christmas and The New Year and come the 1st of January 2017 ready to repeat those promises to ourselves all over again!
2016 has been a very busy for us at Rosetone, with a lot of highs. This year has been all about expansion - our best year yet.
This year we have welcomed 3 new staff members:
Millie, our office apprentice who joined in July is now working hard alongside Averil in our hires department. Millie has been keen to learn and shown passion and enthusiasm for everything Rosetone stands for. She has already become a fun and valuable member of our office team.
Alex, who joined our production and transport team in May. Alex has been a perfect asset to the team the guys describe him as reliable, hard-working and funny. Alex has stepped up and helped us out on more than one occasion and has more than impressed us with his commitment to Rosetone.
Last but not least Coral who re-joined us in July. Coral previously spent 6 months working with our Hires Department back in the summer of 2014 between studying at University. She is now back, and has joined the Sales department, working alongside Michelle. She also handles our marketing – working hard to create our new brochures and helping create our new website and social media accounts working on improving Rosetone’s brand identity and awareness.
In 2016 we have seen a huge expansion of our stock! Introducing our NEW Crossback Chairs, Ghost/Ice Chairs, the Black Chiavari, White Resin Folding Chair, the Napoleon, the Melanie, our entire Hotel and Restaurant and Health and Education chair range, our LED furniture range, and are stunning beaded charger plates. Going in to 2017 we are also looking to expand our catering stock.
During 2016 for our production team we have taken on, not one, but TWO new units to accommodate our increased stock. For our transport department, we have brought two new vehicles to accommodate for the evergrowing demand.
Our hires department has seen its business double since 2015 and we have been fully booked for almost every weekend throughout 2016. This year has also been a big year for our sales department in the introduction of Asian chairs.
Last but definitely not least, we have had a VERY special addition to the Rosetone team in November 2016. We are happy to announce our beloved and hard-working factory manager Richard Allder (who has been working for Rosetone since he was just 16 years old) and his wife have welcomed their second son to the world! His name is Riley-James Benjamin Allder and he weighs 8pounds and 1oz (watch our video all the way to the end to see his beautiful face!).
We wish you all the luck and happiness for the year ahead.
From the Rosetone Team x
