Science Warehouse looking forward to 2013

In this article Steve Kerridge, Managing Director at Science Warehouse reviews the last 12 months at the Science Warehouse HQ.

As we approach the end of the year, it’s always a good time to reflect on what has passed and give some thought to what we can look forward to in the New Year.

At Science Warehouse, it has been an incredibly busy year. I expect all the team is looking forward to the break and the opportunity to put their feet up for a few days!

Whenever I review how the company is doing, what always strikes me is how important our people are to the success of our business. Although our financial year doesn’t end until March 2013, I am already fairly confident that we will hit, and possibly beat, our budget for the year. We are on track to grow the business by over 30% compared to last year. This is an impressive achievement but couldn’t have been achieved without a fantastic group of individuals working together across all parts of the business.

It’s not all been plain sailing. Fast growth brings its own challenges. But it’s how people respond to those challenges that determines the outcome. Our Chairman, David Hames, refers to this rapid company growth as like ‘riding a tiger’; you need to make well thought through but quick decisions and trust your judgement. Customer relationships are crucial and should never be taken for granted. You need to take everyone with you, staff and customers alike. Fail to keep your balance and you suffer the obvious fate.

Looking forward to 2013, we believe that the company will continue to grow strongly. We have a growing number of partners who are taking our solutions into new markets, both in the UK and overseas. Our client base continues to grow in both the public and private sectors. To support this expansion we will continue to invest in our team; in product development to ensure our solutions remain ahead of the market, and in our delivery teams to ensure that we maintain our high levels of customer service for both existing and new customers.

In closing, may I take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped make 2012 such a successful and enjoyable year.

2013 promises to be even better!
