Staff Increases At Cranes

By Aaron Clarke - 22nd January 2015

Following an increase in demand for our garden buildings throughout 2014, 2015 is set to be a very busy year for us!

Our focus is to provide an exceptional quality product, designed to last a great many years, but demand has been so great, that our lead time has steadily increased to 10-12 weeks.

We are conscious that this is a long time for people to wait, especially during the summer months when people just want to get outside and enjoy the garden.

Our aim is to increase our workforce and output, thereby reducing our lead time to around 8 weeks or, ideally, less, so we have been busy recruiting a number of carpenters, joiners and building installers.

Because of our dedication to providing a quality product, every aspect of our garden buildings (even the doors and windows) are hand-built and glazed by our highly skilled team of carpenters in our Norfolk factory, which takes time to complete properly.

Of course, anyone can quickly construct, deliver, and install a garden building in less than a month, but we would question whether the quality of the build and materials used are equal to our own.

The new members of our team will go through a number of weeks of intensive training in our techniques and procedures with our Quality Assurance Operative, who will ensure that they meet the high standards of craftsmanship we demand.

Existing members of the team are encouraged to work with him to both improve their own skill set and help us to refine our own in-house procedures and techniques, which in turn, delivers an even better service for our customers.

A Training Supervisor works alongside our fitting teams to train them in the installation of our different types of building and helps to support junior fitters' progress into more senior positions.
