This is a new project for Roaches where positive criticism or requests for content is encouraged to help us improve for future publications. We hope that you enjoy reading!
Message from the MD
“Having set up Advanced Dyeing Solutions Ltd in 2001 following the closure of Longclose Group Ltd, now 21 years on and the only original member. This has probably been the most challenging period since our formation, from both a personal and business viewpoint.”
“Who would ever have thought that Covid would have had such an impact on all of us in every area of our lives. And now half way through 2022, more than 2 years after it first raised it’s ugly head, things are only just returning to ‘normal’.
The end of Covid has meant that manufacturing in almost all areas has been busy, which along with reduced global production, logistic problems and raw material supply issues, this has led to a large increase in raw materials and component costs.
Looking forward, things look challenging, but we know that with your continued support, we will do our best to minimize price increases as much as possible and work with you to continue to grow our businesses together and further develop relationships with our partners.”
Sean O’Neill (Managing Director)
