2019 has been a fantastic year for P2, seeing us go from strength to strength. As the holiday season approaches, we thought we’d fill you in on how we’ve grown over the past twelve months, and what our vision for the future is. We’re hoping that, as good as 2019 has been to us, 2020 will be even better!
2019 has seen us expand our workforce, adding valuable skills to the team including 2 new joiners and another computer-aided designer (CAD), who has helped us to ensure that our design capabilities stay at the cutting edge of the industry. In the New Year, we’ll be adding another CAD & Project Manager to help us manage our steadily growing workflow. We have also promoted from within, with one of our labourers becoming a CNC programmer and operator.
We hope to add another two joiners in 2020, boosting our capacity even further.
What’s driving our workforce’s expansion? Simple – a corresponding increase in the amount of work we’re taking on. In 2019, we’ve had repeat work from long-time clients (all very hush hush!), with builds in the likes of the newly refurbished JLP Peterborough, an iconic jeweller in London and Paris, as well as a luxury hotel in London. We’ve also won new contracts, with businesses within the travel retail sector.
As a reflection of this growth, we’re shifting our offices around. The reason is simple: we want to accommodate our bigger CAD and production offices. We’re also hoping to locate another suitable factory into which we can move our machine shop & Spray shop to create a bigger workshop. These facilities will be well stocked with a newly acquired heated press, drum sander, and (space permitting) a new CNC machine in 2020.
As you can see, 2019 has been 12 months of success for P2. We hope you’ve been as fortunate. After all this activity, even we need a break, so we’re closing up our offices at lunchtime on December 20th. But we’ll be back in the New Year, opening as normal from January 2nd. Until then, there’s only one thing left to do: wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
