Another New RFC?! In Milton Keynes?!
“We’re looking at opening a brand new regional facility in Milton Keynes” the advert said in large letters.
Williams and Co. is a household name in the South and they’ve just opened their first branch in Manchester. I’d heard the name from suppliers and they’ve been making waves with the heating and plumbing engineers online – I would have been mad to not apply really.
Turns out luck was on my side and after a few positive meetings, I got given the gig.
Initially, I was a bit worried. It’s a tall order to open a new branch but a whole new regional facility with plans to open more local branches? That could be a challenge.
Then again, I’m the right man for the job. Born and bred in Milton Keynes, Bletchley is my stomping ground. I know the city and I know the industry. With my background in building merchant, I’ve dealt with suppliers and traders alike for well over a decade. There was a good reason I helped win contracts to work with the likes of Red Bull and Network Rail.
It’s time to start constructing a plan;
We need a space we can call home. A big space, with enough racking stuffed to the rafters with the best products at the lowest prices in the industry. We need staff; hard grafters that know their stuff back-to-front. Last but by no means least, we need good customers to keep coming back to us.
That bit is easy though. We don’t faff around with our prices like other trade merchants do. We only sell to trade (It’s a sackable offence here..) and we guarantee you the best prices, and that’s one price – None of this “my mate knows a guy” or haggling at the counter for discount. We’re professionals after all.
Anyway, I’ve got a lot of work to do. I’ll be writing here soon to let you know how I’m getting on and planning the big Milton Keynes launch..
