2020 Positive review!
As we welcome in a new year with the hope of it being much better than last year, albeit with the same restrictions implied at the moment, we have had some time to reflect on the positive parts of 2020.
Throughout the whole pandemic, we stayed open to support many different companies to produce parts for the NHS, assist with PPE and also products to help make work places a safer place for staff. Like many companies we had staff working from home, some furloughed and others who worked on site.
Many of us had to cancel birthday parties, weddings, gatherings and celebrations as we distanced ourselves from our loved ones. Here at Midtherm Laser, whilst keeping to the rules, we had a few BIG birthdays and events that we did what we could for.
Paul Woodall turned 60 in April while at home on furlough. We made sure he knew he hadn’t been forgotten about when he came back to work in September.
Lucy Taylor, who worked throughout the whole year, turned 21 in September. While her birthday plans were cancelled due to the second lock down, she could still have a small office party.
Happy Birthday to you both!
After having to adapt and adjust over the lock down period we had a few changes of job roles in the office. Stacey Donnelly who previously worked on admin for over 14 years has taken a new role in Business Development assisting Sue with her role. Also Hash, who started at Midtherm in 2005 in the estimation team and also previously worked in production, has moved back to estimation. We wish you both the best of luck!
In December we invested in our N2 generator to increase our Nitrogen capacity. This will ease production backlogs and will help in preparation for the next new laser.
To end the year, Adam Dunn passed his Pearson BTEC HNC in Engineering and NVQ Extended Diploma in Engineering Manufacture after 2 years of hard work. We featured Adam Dunn at the start of his studies in July 2018. Congratulations Adam!
We are still open and operational and are following Government guidelines. We have procedures in places to keep staff and visitors safe and appreciate all the business we received in 2020 from previous and new customers. Let’s hope 2021 can be successful.
