OK, compared to some of our other products it’s …

Rob, our MD, has been managing customer demand, staffing and furlough rotations throughout the Covid-19 lockdown.

Newsdesk Latest News Leave a Comment

Since we’ve had a bit more ‘working from home and thinking’ time, we’ve been doing lots of work in the background including redesigning the downloads section of our website.

Newsdesk Latest News Leave a Comment

As the more eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed, some of our SEP logos have subtly changed, and this will be feeding throughout our branding over the coming months. After some consideration, we have decided that the time has come to ‘streamline’ our name – which doesn’t actually say anything about what we do, and just causes confusion about where we are.
