What a year 2012 has been!

2012 is fast drawing to a close but wow, what a year it has been! Although times have been tough for all Britons this year, we have also many a boost to revive a little bit of the good old British spirit.

We all watched in awe as the Olympics showed the world what Britain could do. Bradley Wiggins won the Tour de France, there is a new royal heir on the way and more than a few of us shed a tear when Andy Murray missed out on the Wimbledon title. All in all, we have proved what a proud nation we are and that we can get through even the toughest of economic times.

This has also been a tough time for small businesses across the county. But similarly to the public, we have seen a boost from the nation’s successes this year. Although the start of 2012 was looking a little gloomy for businesses, many have still managed to achieve successes over the past 12 months.

Here at SureSet we are delighted to say that we have had a very busy and prosperous year. Here’s just a summary of some of our highlights:

Launch of our new Website: A new innovative, funky and fun website was created so that we could give you a more interactive place to find out about our products and services. This included weekly Blogs, an online shop, e-newsletters and special offers.

Envisage: A new interactive driveway feature was created on the website so that you would have the ability to try different colours of aggregates onto a driveway and have a true image of how it would look.

Glitter Range: We recently launched our new ‘Glitter’ aggregates to the Spectrum range giving you the opportunity to have your bathroom, drive or any surface laid in 100% sparkles.

New Products: We launched our Loose Glass range in November. Over 30 bespoke colours have been created here in the SureSet labs to give you a huge range of bright and colourful loose glass to buy. Use this in pot plants, water features or anywhere else you can think of!

Ground breaking projects: Back in August we completed the aptly named ‘Rainbow’ project at Canterbury University. Over 30 bespoke blends of colours were created and laid to create an incredible rainbow effect on two pathway areas. The finished product was so impressive that it was entered into the Surface Design awards 2012.

Chelsea Flower Show: We worked with a Landscape Designer to help them achieve Gold at the Chelsea flower show in 2012. Our DIY kits were used in and around her stunning water feature to create a permeable, eco friendly and beautiful surface to complement her outstanding garden. We are incredibly proud to have been part of such a prestigious competition.

Charity Sponsorship: As a company we have supported numerous charities this year. Our Staff have also been involved with many charitable pledges such as Movember, charity runs, triathalons, bike rides and many more.

As you can see from just the summary, we’ve had a rather busy year! We’d like to say a big thank you to all of our customers, suppliers and contractors for a brilliant year. Special thanks also go to all of our fantastic approved installers for laying SureSet across the land.

To one and all, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
