IN BRIEF – December 2018

Continuity, commitment and consolidation – looking ahead to 2019

2018 has been one long roller-coaster for the UK economy and business in general. As we approach the end of the year there is continued uncertainty around Brexit and our future trading relationship with our European neighbours. Despite this, here at GfA we’ve had a record year of sales, been fortunate to welcome several new members of staff and consolidated relationships with our key suppliers. All of this puts us in a strong position to face 2019 with a good degree of optimism.

Whilst many readers may be tired of hearing news reports speculating on how, or even if, Britain will leave the EU, we can’t afford to ignore the potential impact of Brexit. Here at GfA we have been in detailed discussions with GfA in Germany and other strategic suppliers over many months to ensure continuity of supply should the worst happen and goods coming into the UK are held up at the ports. We will be in contact in January with further updates as we lead up to the March 2019 deadline.

Next year is an exciting one for GfA. Our plans for 2019 include a move to a new, purpose-built factory which will allow us to offer improved training facilities for customers, a fantastic working environment for our staff and the ability to accommodate a much larger stock holding of completed motors and components. This move is further evidence of the commitment to GfA UK from our shareholders in Germany and provides a great deal of security for the company and our customers.

Christmas closing and order deadlines

Our offices will be closed for Christmas from 1pm on Friday 21st December 2018 and will reopen on Wednesday 2nd January 2019. 

To guarantee delivery before Christmas place your orders by 1pm on Thursday 20th December for next day, before noon delivery on Friday 21st December.

If you are ordering from the Channel Islands, the Highlands of Scotland and Northern or Southern Ireland please note that orders will need to be received by midday on Monday 17th December to guarantee delivery before Christmas.

As is tradition, we will be donating to charity in lieu of Christmas cards again this year. We’d like therefore to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2019.

Door Controls: fault code diagnostic tool extended
