2019 was a great year for the business, including lots of achievements by the company and individuals. We recruited and enjoyed lots of charitable success.
The biggest highlight of the year would be the Queen’s Award which the company won back in April, the company was told by the two directors before being officially presented with the award by the Lord Lieutenant in June. The company did lots of PR on this including stories in most of the local newspapers and water magazines.
We added 3 new employees to the Partech Team last year, covering a wide range of roles throughout the company.
The first employee to join us was Adam, he joined our production team in January 2019, helping our production team to assemble our low range high quality products.
At the end of the year we employed Anjie and Edyta. Anjie joined our sales team, looking after Northern Ireland Water, Severn Trent Water, Scottish Water, United Utilities, Welsh Water, Wessex Water. As well as a couple of countries in europe. She will be the first point of contact for these companies.
Edyta has joined the team as our Production Planner and Buyer, she is responsible for the planning and purchasing of equipment and parts.
Toilet Twinning has been a major part of the Partech Team, we raised lots of money for them throughout 2019 as well as twinning all of our office toilets. We have really enjoyed working with them and wish them all the best for the future.
In 2020 we have decided to sponsor the Cornwall Blood Bikes. They are a are a team of volunteer members who are dedicated to providing a weekday ‘out of hours’ service from 17:00 to 07:00 and a 24 hour Weekend and Bank Holiday service supporting our NHS partners with whom we have formal agreements to deliver essential Whole Blood, Pathology Samples, Medication, Medical Equipment, Medical Notes and occasionally Donor Breast Milk to the NHS hospitals and hospices throughout Cornwall and beyond.
