Welcome

We ’ re very much on the up !

Welcome to our very first quarterly newsletter which contains lots of up-to-date news about Finley Structures . The aim of our newsletter is to not only keep all our clients and employees updated on the development of our company , but it is also to showcase the wide range of talents and services that we offer . At the beginning of the recession , like so many rival firms , Finley Structures suffered a little . However , the Company has continued to be successful since the project came back on line , and are now in a strong position within the industry . Orders have picked up and in recent months we ’ ve secured prestigious contracts to supply such as Nissan , car parts supplier Nifco and Sunderland Software Centre . All our recent and current projects are included later in the newsletter . I ' d be lying if I said the recession wasn ' t a worrying time for everyone . We dropped from having 65 to about 50 staff and now employ 75 . The investment in the factory has made us a more competitive force in the long run resulting in us going for contracts that we may not have got in the past . Bids have to be keenly priced because it ' s a very competitive market , the margins are tight , but the key thing is that we are on an upward curve . We are winning business because I ' d like to think we give our customers great service and the best quality . It is also important that we employ our own steel erectors , we have our own cranes , so that makes us self-contained , whereas most other fabricators sub-let . We can do everything . Our base , in Newton Aycliffe , County Durham , is also the perfect location for our business . You can draw on a good workforce from the surrounding towns like Shildon , Spennymoor , Bishop Auckland and Sedgefield . Road and rail links are also perfect , we have Durham Tees Valley Airport on the doorstep so keeping that all important face-to-face contact with our clients is pretty straightforward . We have faced a really hard spell , but we fought back and are now starting to get the rewards . I hope you enjoy our maiden newsletter , and enjoy reading about the continued development of Finley Structures . John Finley Managing Director
