Small - far away, Small - Far Away

Good to see that Commercial Motor Magazine penmanship is up to snuff. Interesting to see them reporting that Fruehauf had a 90 % market share prior to their Bankruptcy in September. Well possibly that maths might work in some universe - somewhere where grass is purple and dogs have two bottoms - 90  per cent in a suburb of Grantham perhaps? It is not even hard to fact check - there is public data showing market shares. At some time Commercial Motor needs to work out that people in our industry need objective reporting not Press Releases or their magazine will need to have slightly more perforations and come on a roll to be useful to us?

Thanks to Father Ted for 'Small Far Away' - perspective can be tricky when your primary advertisers issue press releases that are slighty out of kilter with planet earth.

And all was well..........

Sat in on a meeting with Bank's chief economist and was quite shocked after slides and charts and the usual good stuff that..............all was well in the UK.  It did make me feel better. And best of all Brexit never happened. Looking at all the slides and charts Brexit does not show up on the last 2 years of UK performance data - Covid - yes certainly makes a bit of a dip on the graph (biggest since WW1) but that bounces back to 'meh'. So equities look set fair, interest rates - will peak but not cause trouble, inflation will peak but not cause trouble, and companies and households are sat on the biggest savings cash pile for some decades and will unleash it as soon as they can. So rosy - but then he is an economist - so could get his rubber out and change the charts when the future actually shows up....

STAS - endless pleasure

STAS - Endless pleasure.

We have been fortunate enough to have been working with STAS for a number of years - which has been a pleasure - great product and great people.  As you may or may not know STAS use the strap line - 'endless pleasure'. This can obviously cause the odd wink or smirk to the potty minded amongst us Brits but if you think more deeply it does make sense.  STAS have moved beyond just offering a product that works and endeavour to become your and our partner in life - at least for the long life of a trailer.  We see this as our philosophy too and we are now offering the STAS tipping trailer range as our number 1 product partner - we hope you all enjoy the Endless Pleasure we can offer you!!

Ramblings of A Deranged Mind

Ramblings of A Deranged Mind

As a quick reminder this blog bit is the freestyle zone: remember these musings are but the ramblings of a deranged mind. They carry no weight and should on no account be used in a court of law:

Partners in Bulk

It is usually during a Church Service that I ponder what on earth I do for a living.

Clearly, we sell excellent products at a good price TICK.

We have a fantastic digital offer TICK. 

So what next?- clearly our role is to be PARTNERS to our customers in life. So not just to supply a trailer but to stay working alongside our customers for the life of their trailer - and because we like them and want our customers to do well. Next level up from just being salesmen.TICK

And beyond these important items, we endeavour to be PARTNERS in life to the planet - making sure that the products we select are the best for the planet too.  Now that is what we do for our customers at Newton and I am proud of that - WORK IN PROGRESS.
