It’s been an exciting and proud week for us at Bell & Stocchero. On Monday, we picked our keys up for our new warehouse and office premises. We’re over the moon that our expansion has enabled us to move to the new facility which will allow us to continue to go from strength to strength in the coming years.
There have been many stressful and traumatic times throughout the year; the severe flooding of our offices and showroom in February, followed by the Coronavirus national lockdown in March forcing us to completely halt production and supply for almost four months.
Thankfully, with the support of great friends, family, customers, suppliers, and a little help from the Chancellor, we have come out the other side in a very positive position. Since August, we have broken our trading records month on month which is a great achievement.
We thought that 2020 had thrown everything it had at us but over the last few weeks, the importing world has been thrown into complete chaos. ‘Unprecedented’ doesn’t even come close to describe the shipping line difficulties, which have been well documented in the press recently. Ultimately this is just a delayed chain reaction from the pandemic, which has caused difficulties with our supply chain and profitability. We have had to take appropriate measures in order to get through this period, but we are confident we can ride out the storm.
There are too many people to thank who have helped us along the way, but we appreciate everyone’s support so far. It really is a fantastic industry to be a part of and we are enjoying every minute of the journey we’re on. We look forward to seeing what the future holds.
