It’s not difficult to do an internet search to discover other companies celebrating 150 years in business throughout 2022.

Diverse companies in motor manufacturing, construction and pest control are celebrating their longevity with a look at the past and how they remain relevant today and tomorrow including Mitsubishi , Sir Robert McAlpine and Octavius Hunt.

Companies and brands come and go. There are some brands we couldn’t imagine being without, imagined they’d be around with us forever, but have fallen by the wayside, having mis-judged the changing marketplace.  What we have in common with others celebrating longevity, is remaining relevant. We’ve adapted our services to meet the expectations of our clients and their traveling employees.
