To Our Valued Ellison Customers,
We hope you are all keeping safe and well. It is hard to believe that we are already past the mid-way point of 2021; having gone through a transformational experience with the global pandemic and all it has brought along with it, we are now able to reflect on the last 17 months with a sense of achievement and pride for the resilience of our business, our people, our customers and our communities.
We continue to diligently follow Government guidelines in the workplace to ensure the safety of our employees as well as our customers. We have adapted our office environment to be in line with all the safety restrictions in place and with that, we have created both a safe and comfortable workspace where our staff can feel at ease and remain highly productive.
Along with many other businesses, we are eagerly anticipating a return to the office for all our staff and are looking forward to finally having our colleagues connected in person again. The efforts from our management and HR teams have been second to none in all the planning, consideration, care and attention that has gone into the organisation of this. We are hopeful that by the end of August, we will be operating with a hybrid working policy, allowing our global teams the flexibility to work between both home and office locations.
As a business, like many others, we have been presented with the inevitable challenges that continue to impact our current distribution including Brexit regulations, tariff challenges, shipping delays and extremely high costs of freight across the board. Our global teams have worked tirelessly to effectively navigate through these challenges to ensure we deliver our best possible quality of service, providing you with our unique products as quickly, efficiently and as safely as possible. We will continue to share our passion for creativity with you, and together, we hope to inspire the next generation of makers.
Thank you to all our colleagues for your dedication, passion, and sheer hard work throughout the year. We look forward to sharing the brighter times ahead with our core values, mission and vision at the heart of everything we do as we continue to a more positive future.
To our customers, partners and creative communities, you are at the core of our business, and we will always be fully committed to you. Thank you for your equal commitment to us, your patience, your support and your collective passion for this special creative industry we share.
Take care of yourselves and of each other.
CEO and Global Board Member
