As the year draws to a close, plans are made for what lies ahead.
New Year’s resolutions will be made, and inevitably broken. 2016 looks to be our biggest year yet as a company, so in the spirit of ‘out with the old and in with the new’, we decided to rebrand. Rest assured we are still the leading Japanese knotweed removal specialists! We’ve just decided to update our image to bring it into the 21st Century.
We have agreed the new design for our logo and branding to reflect our position in the marketplace, giving us a fresh image as we move forward with our extensive growth plans for 2016.
The new brand and logo comprises green and raspberry, reflecting the colours of Japanese knotweed and portrays assurance, professionalism, approachability and innovation in our niche industry. It is now appearing all over Environet marketing material including our exhibition stands, at the NAEA, RICS, The Guild and Constructionline to name but a few.
Environet has grown significantly during 2015 and created many new jobs in the process. In fact we’ve almost doubled our coverage since last year. Our regional and operations teams are out today under clear, blue but cold skies removing knotweed from gardens and development sites. Regardless of the knotweed growing season, our teams work tirelessly throughout the year to ensure house sales go through and developments can start on sites.
At this time of year, when knotweed is hibernating during the winter months, we work on improving and developing our methods. On-going training for all the team is vital and, with this in mind, we will be holding an internal seminar to celebrate our achievements and enjoy the festive season together during December. It was a very busy spring and summer so everyone has earned drinks, dinner and an overnight stay in a nice hotel in the Cotswolds.
With our team of experienced regional managers we are now able to deal with any knotweed problem in every corner of England and Wales. At our team meeting, we will be discussing new ideas, research and development, operations and health and safety along with how we deal with the large commercial projects we undertake in order to achieve removal for our commercial clients. We are increasingly being asked to carry out our Resi-Dig Out™ service for our residential clients, especially when an urgent house sale is in progress, so our methods for this are being reformed, to ensure we can deliver exceptional service to fit the tight deadlines.
Development work continues at our Head Office; everything from improving access for our machinery as it comes and goes from our warehouse, to new accounting systems, improved marketing methods and reviewing training requirements.
Japanese knotweed may take a rest to recuperate during the long, cold winter months but here at Environet the work continues to lead the fight against Britain’s most troublesome plant.
