Once a year Indutrade will issue a Communication on Progress (CoP) that details how we are conducting our operations in accordance with the 10 principles and outlines our responsibility.

Dear Valued Customer

After some deliberation I would like to inform you that I have decided to take early retirement for purely personal reasons, and will leave the company on the 5th April.
This decision has not been easy but after 43 years in the door industry it is time to “hang up my boots” as some would say.
I have many personal things I would like to do; I have new roots that await and will move from mainland UK very shortly, a list of household jobs has been prepared, so this will keep me occupied for many months. In addition, and now that I can afford the time I want to travel and visit the many places that are on my bucket list.
The last 11 years has seen Ellard grow from a company in a very dangerous predicament in 2008 to one that is now extremely successful, it has been a pleasure to work with you during this time on what has been a truly remarkable and enjoyable journey that we have shared together and one that I am sure has been beneficial to both our businesses through our strong cooperation
During that period we have had consistently good sales growth and in 2013 moved to our current, prestigious premises, a legacy that gives me great pride.
The company is in good shape with a solid foundation for further growth, backed by very supportive owners in Indutrade. With the exciting recent addition of NRG the future looks very encouraging, so now the reigns are passed into Paul’s very capable hands, to take the business to the next level. I am sure you will all give him the same support, commitment and loyalty that you have shown to me during my time at the helm.
Finally and most importantly I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the business you have placed with Ellard, for the relationships that have been built and that I will always value and I hope  you will continue to work in closely together in the future.
I wish you good health, good luck and success for many years to come.

Thank you
