We’re delighted to announce that we’re finalists for the Business Excellence Awards Essex 2019!
After applying a couple of months ago, we’ve been excitedly checking our emails for updates, and the news came last week that we’re off to Five Lakes for a black-tie event hosted by Denise Van Outen and Mark Dolan.
We’re proud to have been shortlisted for the Sales & Marketing award alongside two other fantastic local businesses and are looking forward to the chance to find out more about other Essex-based businesses at the event.
This year has been a big one for us, as we’re celebrating our 50th Anniversary. Having started out as a small family business rewinding motors in a tiny building in Tollesbury back in 1969, we’ve certainly come a long way. We now comprise eleven thriving divisions, allowing us to be a single provider for our customers’ electrical and mechanical needs.
If you’ve read the rest of our blogs, you’ll know that so far this year we’ve exhibited at one of the largest Agricultural shows in the world and brought new products to the European market. We’ve also launched a new user-friendly website and drastically increased our business with new and existing customers.
To connect with our diverse client base, we employ a wide range of marketing techniques. Our customers range from farmers, to swimming pool owners, to huge facilities management companies, to national water suppliers! So, to make sure we aren’t that annoying company constantly telling you about the swimming pool pump you’ll never need, we put a lot of effort into making sure our marketing is engaging and always targeted at the right people.
That’s why we use printed adverts in magazines for some customers and Google Ads for others. We send targeted emails, publish press releases, attend exhibitions and have accounts on every major social media platform.
Crucially, we practice what we preach in our marketing, and have accumulated some glowing testimonials over the years. Customers praise us for our professionalism, ability to get jobs down quickly, and our high-quality products that are available at competitive prices.
