You have provided us with a robust start to the year with the consistent shipping of high numbers of customer orders after the January Furniture Show and Spring Fair early February. Your output was hard, fast and relentless, thank you very much. Our sales target was set higher than last year and with your support and cooperation we not only hit it, but beat it, even in this tough trading climate.
