In this, R&M’s March News Letter, we celebrate 25 years in the business!
Click on the link to access our newsletter to learn about the conception of R&M in a one room business unit in Southampton – with wall paper pasting tables and deck chairs for office furniture – through to the multi-million, global company it is today!
This issue of the newsletter also includes interviews with our longest standing employee, Simon Lush, reminiscing about the early days and what it was like to work for R&M back in the days of Cynthia Payne, Margaret Thatcher, and the year Hilda Ogden made her last appearance in Coronation Street
“… we started out with one tiny office and a cupboard …. I turned up on that first day to find that Brian had thoughtfully provided office furniture seemingly from his garden shed ….”
We also take the opportunity to celebrate all of R&M’s achievements through out its 25th Anniversay year, which includes the winning of “The Exporter of the Year Award” , the opening of two new divisions in the UK – a lighting and a marine division, and the newly launched joint venture with our Iraqi partner – Siraj Naybur.
