Raise a glass to wine firm’s transformation
STAFF at the UK’S leading homedelivery wine merchant are popping corks after its main call centre offices were officially reopened following a major refurbishment.
Laithwaite’s Wines called in interior design specialist, Cobus, to install a modern working environment for 130 members of staff at its Gloucesterbased offices. With the wine merchants expected to take on an additional 90 new members to cover the Christmas period, Cobus was required to utilise the allocated workspace to allow for the major growth in capacity.
The family-run firm, also based in Gloucester, installed up to 200 work stations, alongside additional desking and boardroom tables.
Phil Mcinnes, pictured, project manager at Cobus, said: “Using our 40 years’ experience in interior design, the team were able to tackle the difficult challenge of providing extra space for the expected surge in staff by working very closely with Laithwaite’s Wines from the initial design consultation, right through to the installation stage and ongoing after-care. The end result was a great success.”
A Laithwaite’s Wines spokesperson said: “From start to finish, the service planning and delivery was excellent.”
