Welcome to the first edition of Potter Space news and for joining us.
I started with the business in 2005 and clearly in that time we have evolved and transformed ourselves firstly into a full service multi model logistics player and now into a commercial property investment and development company.
There have been many challenges and successes in that time and I am particularly proud, after our excellent performance in the logistics market, of the safe transition of both the business and the people into our new organisation, safe in the knowledge that our former colleagues are now thriving at W H Bowkers, MES and DT Warehousing.
Throughout this journey our evolution has depended upon listening to our clients, learning about the changing market and reacting in a positive way, bringing value to all parties. Critical to our success has been our belief in building strong long-term relationships. We are so pleased that, on average, many of our clients have been with us for more than 10 years. In fact some have been with us for over 50. It is fair to say that without our clients, we wouldn't be here.
The backbone of the performance of our businesses has always been the amazing staff that make up the Potter ‘Team’. I am immensely proud of the way we conduct our business - I know I am surrounded by colleagues who genuinely care and are passionate about doing a first rate job and I am delighted to be welcoming new members to the team for the next phase in our story. All these key ingredients mean that we are well placed to move the business forward to the next level, so I'm thrilled to share our exciting new brand with you all.
As the successful owner, developer and manager of five thriving business parks, we have a proven track record of delivering 1.6m sq. ft of industrial and commercial units, to a multi sector client base. With further development planned, we will continue to expand the business parks to accommodate future clients. Our business has been successful for over 50 years and we will continue to foster long-term relationships for the next 50 years and beyond. Our aim is to build space to help our clients grow and our mission is to provide a great home for all kinds of businesses.
Thank you for your continued support regarding this important next step in our enterprise.
