Managing Director Colin Thomas FICM explains: “Our partnership with Graydon in 2000 meant immediate growth for our business and for that we will always be grateful. Now that we’ve acquired their shares and restored our independence, we reinstate the group’s long-held philosophy that sees strategy and planning in the hands of local management. We fully intend to pursue this ethos with growth via acquisition and organic means.”
