My day started by taking the train to Glasgow and then finding my way to Enterprise to collect the car I was using to do my three visits of the day. Soon I was on the road and on my way to visit our Scottish members for the first time! First stop was Carpet and Flooring where I met Transport and Warehouse Manager Mike Kelly. It was nice to see their Silver Award Certificate from the Recofloor Awards 2017 on display. Mike and I had a productive conversation where I gave Mike an update of the scheme and details about the Grand Tour. We were invited to their trade show on 23rd August which Joe will be attending.
Next I went to MCD Scotland. Although I didn’t have a great deal of time with the Branch Manager Jim Macgregor, we discussed the Recofloor specification, talked about the bins and Jim agreed to promote the scheme further. Back on the road again for the last visit of the day to Headlam Scotland. As it was the first time I was visiting them, it was great to discover that the first thing you see when you arrive at the reception area is all of their Recofloor Awards certificates! Dawn and Chris were very welcoming and we talked about ways that we can help them to increase the use of Recofloor amongst their customers. This went very well, in fact, we created a custom Recofloor advert for their next price list booklet! So hopefully now more contractors and fitters will see the benefits of using the scheme and how they can help the environment. Here is a photo of their certificate wall in the Reception area!
