    Good solid workforce. Lots of improvements in progress. Development and progresson for the right calibre and attitude. Unique product to be proud of.

    Pros

    We make the best window out there and its given me a great standard of living and possible promotion opportunities

    Cons

    The shop floor staff aren't appreciated as much as they should be and should be more involved in improvements that are being made

    Advice to Management

    Involve everyone with all the pro's and cons of the business and get everyone onside and working together. Together we are one and together we work better
