A business update from our Chairman, Gordon Innocent

Welcome to our first news round up for some time. Rather than just the usual round up of new products that you would expect, I would prefer to start with an honest appraisal and say that the last six months have been amongst the toughest of my career, with Covid affecting the lives of everyone I know. For some, it has been devastating and to whom both I and the whole team at RGB offer our sincere condolences.  For others it has been very tough, as we continue to try and run businesses against all of the odds in what has been extraordinary trading conditions.

Amongst all of the negativity, there have been some great success stories within the industry, with those who have been able to remain positive and focused. Opportunities have also presented themselves, with those fortunate enough to be allowed on site able to start and complete projects to the high standards we set ourselves. 

As an industry, we have all been through highs and lows and I genuinely believe that the good times will return in the near future.  In the meantime, we need to continue to adapt both our product offerings and services to suit the times and I hope that some of the products listed below will help you achieve that.

Myself and the team at RGB are here to help in any way we can. The offices have remained open throughout (albeit with a reduced staff and with strict social distancing in place) and will remain so, on hand to support you however we can. 

Please enjoy this newsletter and remember to stay safe.

Gordon Innocent, RGB Chairman
