2017 – What a year it’s been for Station Couriers
Posted 18th December, 2017
2017 has been a huge year for Station Couriers. Our family run business has continued to grow; welcoming new members of staff, expanding our fleet and being recognised for our hard work.
First of all, we decided to change our logo to something that is more recognisable when our trucks are out on the road. The new design is based on a pallet (which we know a lot about!) and we’re really pleased with the result.
We have welcomed two new vehicles to our fleet. The first lorry, ‘Ava-Seren’ – named after director, Sian Jenkins’ daughter – joined us in September. ‘George’ was named by Ava-Seren and began his journey on the road in October. Both are brand new DAF trucks, in Jamaican blue and silver, Ava-Seren being an XF model and George being a CF model.
Station Couriers would like to congratulate our sponsored sports teams; The White Stars, Newtown Rugby Club and Montgomery Cricket Club for all of their dedication throughout their seasons this year.
Powys Business Awards
The highlight of our year has definitely been the Powys Business Awards 2017. We were named as a finalist in the Growth category. This meant we had the privilege of welcoming the judges to Station Couriers and showing them around our depot.
They filmed on the day and you can view the video here.
We attended the awards ceremony on 6th October and unfortunately didn’t win our nominated category because of specific judging criteria, however, we did take home the ‘Judge’s Award’ which we are so proud to receive.
The Powys Business Award explained: “The business is successful, it is growing, and it is employing more people each year. The finances are well managed, the equipment is up to date. Many staff were met during the visit, and it was clear that they were happy and fulfilled in their roles.
This business is exemplary as an employer, as a supplier, as a customer, and as a member of its community. They assist with many charity events, at not an inconsiderable cost to themselves both in time and money.
One of the best things about visiting this business and learning what makes the management tick was watching the culture in the business. It is a real family, and we are sure this approach and culture are what has made this business so successful.”
Sian Jenkins, Station Couriers’ director, says: “This year has been a very busy year with lots of change and updates happening along the way. On behalf of Chris, Julie and myself we would like to thank everyone that has helped us and supported us along the way. We would also like to thank all of our Station Couriers team and our loyal customers. Station Couriers wouldn’t be where we are today without your support. We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let’s hope we have a successful 2018!”
