Life at STS has been a little bit crazy the past few months. We took on some very complex jobs and as is usual for manufacturing new units the development is undertaken as part of the manufacture.. headaches, teething troubles, they are like humans really!
Add to this the usual issues you have when you need 20 people to all be well and here every day but things happen to make that not happen..and you would find us finishing last year quite pressurised!
But bright and breezy with the new impetus a brand new facility brings and we are..as the kids would say..'well excited'! It was only today that I realised just how fantastic it will be when the guys have all that space to work in. The welders are moving in early February and the assembly about a month later. The poor builders will be chased out as soon as the mezzanine wit the canteen and changing rooms are done,and they start work making us a new office for the Autumn.. I can't wait!
Not sure if you can work this out.. but this is the inside of our assembly workshop today, it's about 20 x 40 feet
..and this is where they will move soon..about 50 x 80 feet
Our old TomCat Joey, 16 this year is always around somewhere, hiding under the table in the office or enjoying titbits from the workshop guys when they snack!
