Well what a busy few months we have had…yet very poignant, as it’s our 20th birthday!

To celebrate, we held an open month in July, with competitions and lots of cake, we also dug deep into our archives to look how the story began and also donated money to a very deserving charity , Ashgate Hospice.

Melissa & Rachel from CosterFirstly, we would like to say thank you to all who helped us celebrate and took time out of their day to come and visit us during our open days. I would also like to congratulate Rachael Cook of Coster UK for winning our corner competition, with a very impressive time of 15 seconds. For a little bit of perspective, the average time in the competition was over 1 min, however the CCC staff who assemble the corners on the shop floor do it in 4 seconds!!  That’s right!! 4 seconds.

We also donated £1,000 to Ashgate Hospice, who are a fantastic local charity who we have supported for years. They provide specialist care and support for to patients with life limiting illness, and support the patient’s family in these tough times through running a fantastic 21-bed inpatient unit suite, 16-place day hospice and providing a range of therapies and support services.

 

 

 

While moving the new offices round, we found some very old pictures of the factory when we first started in 1997. So here some pictures to show you our journey, from 1997 to 2017.
