We have all faced an extremely challenging year and as it draws to a close I want to express our sincere thanks to all the clients and suppliers, across all of our operating companies, who have supported us through this difficult time.
Clients have worked tirelessly to ensure that project sites and the buildings in which we operate remained Covid Secure. Suppliers have adapted their procedures to achieve continuous and safe service delivery. We value the relationships we have with you and are grateful for the trust you place in our teams to deliver.
Our staff, who make up those teams, have made an extraordinary effort throughout the Covid pandemic to keep all our sites operational and our clients serviced to the normal high standards expected. They have displayed exemplary teamwork and we are grateful to each and every one.
We are also grateful for the invaluable contribution of all those other key workers, bus and train drivers, refuse collectors, cleaners, care home workers and the staff of the NHS who have helped our business and society at large to function safely.
Thanks to the efforts of you all Gratte Brothers will enter 2021, our 75th year, confident in the future.
I wish you all, on behalf of the Directors, a very safe and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
