The factory visit has been a firm fixture on the business calendar ever since just after factories were invented. In our opinion it’s one of the most enjoyable ways you can spend a day of work.
We took some time today to visit one of our key suppliers. We discussed new products, pricing and making our service better for you, our customers.
This factory is run by a good boss.
There are lots of corridors and stairs. Always a good sign.
There was lots of paper, some of it with foreign words printed on.
Often factories can be a long way from your headquarters, nowadays with globalisation, sometimes even in another country. That didn’t deter us. Community Management came from Scotland, CEO came from CEOland, Engineering came from the land where they make hats out of the jumpers the Levellers used to wear. Art came from LA, hence the one sock rolled up “gang” look.
Where were Sales and Marketing I hear you tapping into your keyboards! Worry not. They were out pounding the streets, knocking on doors, doing the deals that fund these extravagant excursions.
It was a good day.
