Welcomed by company founders Chris Murphy and wife Pamela, the Lord Lieutenant was taken on a guided tour of our headquarter offices, display garden and growing Humanitarian range which has recently secured a contract with leading charity Oxfam to supply superstructures and latrines for the next two years. For Mrs Nellis, the ever growing Humanitarian range was an inspiring aspect of the company:
“As industry leaders they are also finding the space to prioritise humanitarian work in addition to their commercial drive, demonstrating that they have both huge business acumen and a true commitment to playing their part in the challenges in the wider world”
The tour concluded in the recently acquired second factory on Caxton Road where the Company manufactures uPVC windows and doors along with prototyping and testing prospective Garden Buildings for durability and use.
The Lord Lieutenants visit is another achievement for the us as we continually expand, allowing us to serve more customers and provide jobs to the local areas surrounding our four branches in Warminster, Flixbourough, Faversham and Bedford. We are expanding in the New Year bringing 65 new jobs to Liverpool and Basingstoke. Throughout the visit, Mrs Nellis was introduced to our team that work behind the scenes and was impressed by their drive and passion:
“I was delighted to meet the inspiring team at Dunster House. They demonstrate a great entrepreneurial spirit based on a truly vibrant diverse workforce. It is a great asset to have businesses of this high quality located here in Bedford.”
Chris Murphy was pleased with how the visit went:
“It was an honour to welcome HM Lord Lieutenant of Bedfordshire Helen Nellis and show her the hardwork our team put in to build our standing and increase job opportunities in the community. She was very interested in our current Humanitarian range and our future plans with leading charity Oxfam”
