As the year draws to a close it’s time to remember some of our highlights of 2012.
Many of you will be aware that the 14th September 2012 marked our 50th Anniversary. Cecil Duckworth set up Worcester Engineering way back in 1962, and the expert workforce that we have developed over the past half a century has meant that Worcester, Bosch Group has grown into the established company it is today.
To ensure we marked this special occasion properly Worcester launched a search for commemorative golden tickets, hidden in boilers nationwide. When the prized tickets were found installers were able to give their lucky customers £1,000 off the cost of their new boiler, as well as a five year manufacturers guarantee and free servicing for its lifetime. Big congratulations to the installers who found the tickets, as they also bagged themselves £200 worth of Bosch power tools.
Our 50th anniversary also gave us the opportunity to join a number of installers who were also celebrating big anniversaries making 2012 a year of celebration. To help each of the firms celebrate, our local technical sales managers surprised the companies with chocolates and balloons to help get the party started. One of the most notable anniversaries was for Barclay Erskine Ltd who celebrated a massive 150 years in action.
We were was also proud to reward those who are committed to conserving the environment. At this year’s Environment 2020 awards, installers, builders and specifiers were commended for their outstanding work using high-efficiency technologies and installation best practice to help make customers properties more energy efficient.
2012 has been a truly memorable year for us. Reaching 50 years trading in today’s difficult economic environment is no mean feat. Here’s to the next 50!
To those celebrating, we wish you a wonderful Christmas, from all at Worcester, Bosch Group. Stay tuned for ‘A look back at 2012, Part 2’
