7THINGS... 5. SOCIAL AND AMUSING Those who know Supalite, will be aware that the people behind this family-run business loves to work hard, play hard, and in doing so, bring a great following of loyalty amongst their staff and customers. Some of the business passions include football - the sponsorship of the local girls under 10s football team, where the girls all wear their Supalite sponsored training jackets, Pool - the company recently set-up a pool team, and golf, a choice of sport for several members of staff and Supalite customers. On its latest golf day, Supalite saw nine of its customers from across the country, attend. Plied with bacon butties and mugs of tea prior to the game, customers were given the opportunity to be at the height of competitiveness, contending against each other. Lunch and awards were given out to customers, but the award for best dressed on the course had to go to Supalite’s National Sales Manager, James Casby. 6. THE 360-DEGREE APPROACH Supalite believes that the passion, loyalty and compassion of its business retailers are behind much of the success of the business. Time and effort is taken to ensure the business offers a 360-degree approach towards its customer’s needs. It takes every aspect of the relationship and constantly looks at how they can develop and progress – from social events to products, from personal visits to annual and bi-annual conferences. More recently, Supalite held its 3rd Annual Conference in Derby, inviting all its approved fabricators to join them. The conferences have become a vital platform for the business to help them share information, and communicate ways of improving products, selling and manufacturing techniques. 7. BOXING FIT Back on the sporting front, Supalite supports British super welterweight boxer Scott Fitzgerald (Fitzy). The Lancashire-born boxer has a good record of wins so far in his career, which fits in line perfectly with Supalite’s performance to deliver products. Supalite recognised the young, up and coming boxer, who decided to turn professional in February 2016 after competing and winning at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Scott defeated Indian amateur boxer, Mandeep Jangra at the event, receiving a gold medal. Sponsorship is providing a winning combination both for Supalite and this talented young man, providing him with financial assistance to help toward his training and travel expenses. Scott remains undefeated since turning pro, after seven fights.
