Just a stone’s throw from the Olympic Village, Baddeley Brothers, the specialist printing and envelope making firm is ready for the inevitable transport disruption that up to 3 million visitors a day will create.
Preparations are well underway to ensure that the business runs smoothly throughout the Olympics and Paralympics – so much so, that Director Charles Pertwee was chosen by the London 2012 planners to feature in a video providing travel advice to other companies in the area.
“We started thinking about this at the beginning of last year, so we’ve been able to make the necessary investment in a new computer system to assist off-site work and we’ve already discussed with our suppliers and customers the restrictions that may be in place in our area and across London,” commented Charles. “After such a long build-up, we’re now all really excited about the Games coming to London and to be chosen by the organisers to star in one of their official videos is a great opportunity to promote our business. I know that many companies looking to prepare effectively for the Olympics will be arranging their own celebrations, so may be looking for the specialist printing that we provide.”
