Well we are now into our 10th year of trading, who would have
thought that when we started all that time ago. We are still
working very hard with our customers to provide our services at
a very competitive rate.
2014 It's time to announce that Peter and Ros
have a new member to the family, with the birth of their
daughter Pippa. I'm sure we would all like to offer our
congratulations to them both.
2014 We really should update
our news more frequently, but when your busy it's admin tasks
like these that get pushed to the side. So what has happened
over the last few years. Well it's still business as usual
really, and we have been kept very busy with jobs around the
country, but there is no great news to announce, well not
Well it's been a year since the last update, where did that time
go, too busy to comment on here obviously!!! In the last comment
I was hoping to be able to report the completion of the work on
the unit, but although much progress has been made with
partitions, doors and carpets, there is still finishing off work
to be done. The greatest achievement of this last year seems to
have been avoiding another burglary, with many of the other
occupied units suffering the same fate. On the work front, we
still seem to manage to keep busy during these difficult
operating conditions, and as we look forward to the start of our
8th year in business, we hope to continue that trend.
We've started to slowly make improvements to our new unit.
Firstly we've increased the mezzanine floor over the front door
to give us a meeting room, well that's the current plan anyway. Then
following the burglary, we decided it's about time to start
some of the internal partitioning we've kept promising to do. At
the moment it is very much a work in progress, but hopefully by
the next update we'll be able to report its completion.
2010 Merry Christmas to all our
customers and suppliers, and please take note of our new
address and telephone number.
2010 Yes we've now completed on Unit 2
Stanley Court and we should have moved in by the end of the
2010 With the free
rent period on our current office coming to an end at the end of
the year, we've been working hard to secure a new home. And we
can now announce we'll be moving into Unit 2 Stanley Court,
Telford Way, Waterwells Business Park, Gloucester. With this
being more of an industrial unit, it'll allow us to keep
separate the valves and cables rather than just having them
pilled up in a corner of the office.
2010 So its the start
of another new year and to get thing started we've taken on
Shaun Mullins as our new Sales Manager. Shaun is very
experienced in the Dairy and Cheese industries with years of
experience with Wincanton Engineering, CPS and Moody.
2009 Well finally we have moved into our new
office, Unit B7 Elmbridge Court, which is off the Elmbridge
Court roundabout on the A40 as you head into Gloucester.
2009 We may have some exciting news to
announce soon regarding a new office - keep watching!!!
What 'Global Recession' - ever since July it's been hectic, with Alan out in South Africa again
and with the prospect of
another 2 three week trips before the end of the year, and its
definitely not a holiday!!! This leaves Pete and Rich picking up
all the UK work.
Up until now we've not noticed the impact of the 'Global
Recession', but recently we've got a little quieter, but at
least it gives us a chance to catch up on all those items we've
been too busy to do.
2008 Now with the 'Credit Crunch' well
and truly upon us the building of the industrial units has been
postponed by the developers.
2008 Let's just say the completion of the
industrial unit by October will not be happening given that it
has not even started yet . . . maybe by the New Year if the
problems with the council are sorted. On a positive side, we
still keep ourselves really busy, with Pete at Severnside almost
permanently and Richard and Alan taking care of the software and
Our exciting news, is that we are now in the process of moving
into a new industrial unit on the Waterwells Business Park, just
off junction 12 of the M5 south of Gloucester. The building work
is due for
completion in October, we'll announce more details when
2008 If you've
visited our site before, you may have noticed a new company
logo, well it's a new year and time for a change!!! But
seriously, our new logo is an attempt to combine our company
name with the initials 'PSS', which we are more often known.
Just another quick few words, "still very busy!!!!!". But it has
been a worrying time with some major customers closing down, but
in the short term it has led to a lot more work, we just hope we
can fill the void one it's all over. But we do wish all the
staff at Dairy Crest, Totnes and Bacardi-Martini, Southampton
all the luck in the future and thank them for all their
Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday
PSS, Happy birthday to you ! ! ! ! Will this be the start
of the terrible two's, now that were 2 years old. Not a chance,
not with all the support of our fantastic customers.
2006 Oh well, the end of another year,
and yes this year we have managed to organise to get together to
celebrate Christmas - well an excuse for Pete to organise a '4x4
Off-Road Driving Experience' at
Trax & Trails
anyway - you can see some of the photos on the
Out of Work page. And also the 3 of us would like to wish all our
customers and suppliers a Very Merry Christmas and we hope to
see you all again in the new year.
2006 Just a quick
update, but other than work there's not a lot to mention. All
three of us did manage to get together with Dairy Crest, Totnes
Engineers for the "Abbfest 2006", a Beer and Food Festival at
Abbotskerswell, near Newton Abbott, Devon. Maybe this will have
to be the substitute for last years Christmas party, which we
still haven't had!!!
Over the past year we've worked on projects all over the UK,
from Devon to Moray in Scotland, then on
projects going to Switzerland and China, then a commissioning
project in South Africa, and now we've stretched it further by
working on a project out in Australia - how much further can we
April 2006 Well here we are, a year old already - doesn't time fly,
especially when you're busy. At this time we would like to thank
all our customers and suppliers for all their assistance over
the past year. Also, following the birth of their third child,
we would like to wish Richard and Becky all the best with their
new little boy Oscar.
March 2006 The new year has been a little on the hectic side. Pete
working all hours at Dairy Crest Totnes and preparing for his
house move. Alan has been working on a
stacker/reclaimer out in South Africa for over 2 months. And poor
old Richard is having to mop up all the other work, and all that
with Becky expecting their third child.
2005 With a little time on our hands
we've managed to update the web site to provide some more
October 2005 With Richard, Pete
and Alan now exclusively involved with PSS we can now cater for
all your Process Software and Service needs.
A new company called Process Software & Service Ltd formed.
