For many, summer, and in particular, the school holidays, present the chance to unwind for a week or two and maybe even to take a well earned holiday, whether it’s a staycation in the UK or somewhere farther afield.
However, the opposite is true for Heckmondwike, as when it comes to summer, operations are gearing up for one of the most active times of the year.
As education is Heckmondwike’s largest sector, summer is the busiest period for the company. As schools break up for the six weeks holidays, it is the ideal opportunity for schools, colleges and universities to replace their carpet.
That means all equipment in the company’s manufacturing facility, alongside its production staff, are working around the clock, seven days a week to ensure customers, whether it’s architects, flooring contracts, facilities managers, main contractors or schools, receive the carpet in time for installation over the summer break.
Just like clockwork, the process takes place every year, and 2019 was no exception. Orders for summer installations in the education sector started early in the year and lasted right through to when students and staff returned to their classrooms at the start of September.
Once again, Supacord, which for over 40 years has been the smart choice for the education sector, was the company’s most popular product, with thousands of square meters being manufactured and dispatched to cater for demand in schools (whether primary or secondary), colleges and universities right across the country.
The company’s leading design product, Array, also delivered success across several facilities that required a creative touch. With a striking colour running throughout, many educations sites chose it, and paired it with Broadrib, to match the colour scheme of their crest or logo.
To showcase the work completed this summer, there will be a host of case studies uploaded to the Heckmondwike website over the coming weeks and months – so keep a lookout.
