“If you don’t take the first step, you will never start the journey. Investing in ideas, concepts, research and people is the life blood of our business. Invention and innovation are what drives me and all the engineering team, aiming for simple solutions that challenge what is achievable, keeping our eyes on the ball and being quick on our feet to understand customer needs and desires.” - Alan Stannah, Joint Chairman
