So what next?
This month I managed to achieve a small milestone in my career at Camida, reaching two years with the company. It has been an unusual start given what has happened in that period. Almost constant restrictions have kept me grounded for most of it and as a Sales Manager it has been very strange not being able to travel freely. To emphasise this point, I have only just made my first visit from the UK to our head office in Clonmel, Ireland!
As you can see, finally getting here had me contemplating: What next? After such a turbulent period working in our industry it would be nice to think that the scarcity of raw materials and disrupted supply chains characteristic of the last two years would ease in 2022. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case, even before considering the distressing war taking place in Ukraine. Once again truly historic events look to be shaping the speciality chemical industry this year and beyond.
Camida had another successful year in 2021, despite such challenging circumstances. We were incredibly busy and continued to grow commercially. Due to this growth, we also saw the start of a new project to expand our offices, marking another exciting period in the company’s history. Watch out for project updates in future newsletters.
It is undoubtedly Camida’s philosophy to exceed service expectations, built on sharing in an open partnership with both our customers and suppliers which has helped achieve such growth.
Importantly, we do not measure success only by our growing figures but by customer, colleague, and supplier satisfaction, along with our contribution to the local community. As you will notice in this newsletter, we have been actively participating with and supporting our local community. There have also been many social events which help maintain a strong focus on the wellbeing of colleagues, particularly important as we all emerge from the restrictions and rules of the past two years.
So, it has certainly been a fascinating start to my career at Camida and it is always hard to see what comes next, but looking at my two years so far, I am confident it will be positive, and I certainly look forward to contributing to many successful years ahead.
