2017 and all that!!
Well another year is drawing to a close and what a year it has been.
I think on reflection 2017 seems to have been a very good and positive year for a lot of MiM companies, err dare I say it "Despite Brexit".
I know for Subcon Laser it has been another incredible year with turnover set to increase by over a million pound again this year. We have created 9 new jobs and invested in another Trumpf 2 axis laser system and that is just the start of some exciting growth plans for 2018.
Back in March we were successful in achieving the new ISO9001:2015 quality standard as well as the new ISO14001:2015 environmental standard.
In May we were proud to be involved in what was the biggest and most successful MiM Expo to date at the Ricoh Arena and in June Subcon was once again exhibiting at the annual SUBCON Exhibition at the NEC, oh and we have managed to win a couple of awards as well.
Over the past year I have attended some great MiM member breakfast events and I will repeat what I said in my "Meet Britain's Makers" video shoot, which by the way is now the most viewed in the series. And that is of being a member "you will get out of it what you put into it", if you become a member you have to "join up and you have to join in".
The breakfast events are a great way of letting other members know who you are and what you do, I know I have gained business from them and made some good friends along the way.
So as 2017 nears its end I would just like to take this opportunity to wish all MiM members a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Peaceful and Prosperous 2018
