The Way We Were
Forecasts. Plans. Budgets. Schedules. With the day-to-day necessity to continually look forward and anticipate the future direction of a business, it’s rare that we cast more than a passing numerical glance over our shoulder at where we’ve come from.
However a chance find of some old photos cast the mind back to where Techtron has come from. The pictures show the site in the very early days in late 2007. The business had recently been established following the acquisition of the assets of a local company that had been recently liquidated.
The set-up had been cobbled together to meet the needs of a handful of customers that transferred along with the assets. The whole operation consisted of one water tank (an IBC filled by hosepipe), a single overhead IBC mixer and one single head filling machine. The entire day to day business was handled by a team of five staff who specialised in multi-tasking.
