It’s always interesting for Recognition Express Mid Surrey owners Adam and Sally Findlay to learn more about the story behind the clothing and products they supply to customers. But one recent project has almost literally blown them away!
They’ve been involved with Kingston University for many years as a supplier of promotional and branded products. Sally also mentors female engineering students, so they were delighted to provide logoed polo shirts for a team of six fourth year MEng students working on the final stages of the Astro department’s three-year programme to develop and launch a sounding rocket.
The experience has been fascinating for the husband and wife team as they have been fortunate enough to be kept informed of the project’s progress at each stage. A test firing of the rocket, which will be used to launch equipment capable of taking measurements and carry out scientific experiments, is due to take place shortly.
"As a mentor of female engineering students at Kingston University it has been really interesting for us to learn more about the work they are doing and get involved even in a very small way with such an exciting project. Space travel and rockets capture everyone’s imagination and this project showcases the engineering excellence of Kingston University at its very best.
Our polo shirts look very smart too!"
Having been away from the workplace for 18 years, I was apprehensive about starting my own business. The support I have received from Recognition Express has been exceptional. The business is going extremely well and the economic climate has not affected my business at all. In fact, people are very aware of the need to promote the business and keep their name out there.Jan Chidley, Recognition Express Hull and East Riding
The ongoing support from the franchisor is very comprehensive. Good initiatives and brochures are widely available to help you promote the business. New ideas and promotions are always changing to keep pace with the marketplace. It's this approach of constantly reassessing the marketplace that helps us maintain our position.Kevin Andrews, Recognition Express Taunton
