Celebrating 40 years of Customer Care

The 29 November 1976 has a special significance in my diary. It was a Monday, under the sign of Sagittarius. On the world stage, Gerald Ford was The US president. The people in US were listening to ‘Tonight’s The Night (Gonna Be Alright)’ by Rod Stewart. In UK, ‘If You Leave Me Now’ by Chicago was top of the pops. ‘Silver Streak’, directed by Arthur Hiller, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1976 while ‘Sleeping Murder’ by Agatha Christie was one of the bestselling books.

In my world, Monday 29 November 1976 was the day I started my employment as a salesman with a manufacturer of storage systems. My career in this industry has continued and flourished for 40 years and shows no sign of slowing down. After four years, I joined a company specialising in manufacturing industrial workbenches where I honed my sales skills and product knowledge. In 1991, I took a massive leap of faith and opened the doors on Maximus Handling Systems Limited. 25 years later, the important people in the business are you, our clients and prospects. Our association with you is crucial. Without your support, I would not be able to continue to trade, so thank you. I greatly value your trust and confidence and sincerely appreciate your loyalty to my business.
