Welcome to a special issue – The 20th anniversary of the Finley Structures company newsletter .

Our 20th celebration has been clouded by Covid-19 and the only question I ’ ve been asked in recent months is how our business has been affected by the pandemic .

Yes , we have been affected , but I am pleased to say that it ’ s not all negative .
We have been fortunate enough to have work to carry us right through the pandemic , our sites remained open , so we continued to deliver .
Yes , we temporarily lost a small number of staff to shielding , but we then recruited to fill the gaps , some of which we have now made permanent .
We have taken all steps required to make sure our workplace is a safe place to work , and the attitude of our staff throughout has been first class .
Our production team have worked tirelessly during lockdown to keep steel going through the factory and to ensure we achieved site dates .
And our management team have also been hard at it – working on prospective projects and pricing up jobs .
During lockdown , we have won seven new contracts , and there are others pending for the new year , so it ’ s working out really well considering , and we remain very confident about the future .
The reason we have been able to move forward despite the pandemic is because we ’ ve established a solid customer base , a loyal workforce , and a reputation for quality and reliability .
In tough times , that ’ s where our resilience has come from – and it ’ s made me more determined than ever to build on what has been built before us .
I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Finley Structures , as I ’ m really proud of the way they ’ ve adapted and fought through this year .
We ’ re also delighted to reveal that we have finally completed our new website . A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes , particularly from Andrew Workman , to get the new site finished .
Our old site served a purpose , but it was designed several years ago , and it was time for a refresh .
The new site – available at the same domain , finleystructures . co . uk – is more modern , up-to-date and has some exciting interactive content , along with our new corporate film .
We feel it reflects the company in a professional and positive way – we hope you like it .
