Parliamentary Review 2017

In 2017 we were delighted to be asked by The Rt Hon David Curry to write an article for the ‘Parliamentary Review’. This prestigious document is a platform for successful and ambitious companies recognised for illustrating ‘best practice’ in their field by asking what they do, where they do it and how they do it. It is also an ideal opportunity to highlight obstacles and problems encountered by those ‘at the coalface’, particularly in respect of finance and skills shortages. This publication is then sent to numerous Policy Makers and heads of business, to aid them in making those decisions that affect all our futures.

We decided to embrace this opportunity to tell our story, and, indeed, it was very interesting from talking to other chosen companies, that there was a common theme amongst us all. The root of success is, in short, a lot of hard work from management and staff.

The culmination of this process was a gala evening at the Houses of Parliament. It was a proud moment for HEMCO, to be stood in such beautiful and historic surroundings, and to be recognised for the successful, dedicated team that we are.
