The contract involves maintaining the verges and open spaces around the town. Since Shed mobilized the contract in April, the council have received several compliments from their residents via social media, commending the new contractors’ performance and praising Shed’s care and attention to detail. This contract is one of three local authority contracts awarded in April, including the parishes of North Ferriby, Humberside and Riccall in Yorkshire.
In the first quarter Shed also won several new contracts in the private commercial sector including multiple sites with local property developers Litton Property Group and the renowned Welbeck Estate. Growth has been further assisted by existing key clients including CEVA Logistics and property management groups Ryden who have awarded Shed with several new sites in the past three months.
Shed have also been honoured to have been selected by the British Standards Institution (BSI) for their marketing campaigns to smaller businesses. They see Shed as an excellent role model for an SME working with the standards of ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management).
BSI recently featured an article in the national newspaper The Telegraph writing on the challenges of growth for smaller businesses. They showcased Shed as a company meeting these challenges and discussed how accreditations can help businesses to both manage and facilitate expansion.
Upon being featured in the article Peter remarked, “This article puts us in front of national audience that perhaps we wouldn’t have been able to reach by ourselves. We are delighted to have been chosen by BSI for their marketing campaigns to SME’s, which is a recognition itself as to our implementation and operation of the standards.”
In the past two months, BSI also invited Company directors Peter and Nicky Botham to attend and contribute to two global live streaming webinars, developed by BSI to promote ISO standards.
