'We as an industry are weak'


Lord Lucan you have hit the nail on the head. Its about time al stopped chasing the golden egg , IT DOES NOT EXIST. Good things come in small packages, not all that is big is beautiful. The smaller wholesalers, contractors and suppliers are the ones who suffer. The way in which contracts are won needs to be more transparent. Did no one learn the lessons of the Gateway days and the disclosures of what was going on behind closed doors. The tendering process has to be changed. W R had won major contracts with the big boys in the supermarket sector, they go bump and the contracts are automatically sold to Integral. Surely they should have gone out for re-tender to established contractors who have a history in the business of refrigeration. W R subcontracted their installation work , and retained the service work for their own engineers. The directors of the failed W R find themselves repositioned in Integral. These were the very people who put W R into administration. Whose to say that these same directors are going to do any better now that they are with Integral. 2 years down the road will we see the same thing happening all over again. Good luck to all the engineers, suppliers who have suffered at the hands of W R. If you can have a Good Xmas and a better 2014. J Frost
