Following the roaring success of our first roadshow launch events, we are absolutely delighted to have secured a limited-space tour of a local Wakefield factory facility.
Our members over at Elis have kindly agreed to give a limited number of our members a tour of their local facility located on Portobello Road. With the chance to not only have an exclusive visit, there will also be chance for you to get to know fellow members and have a chat about how you can all work together.
After seeing the amazing turn out and been given some brilliant feedback from out attendees, we have taken everything on board, and are we are so thrilled to offer you the chance to come to this event.
Starting at the factory doors at 9.30am, there will be chance to grab a cup of tea or coffee to get the day started, meeting with fellow We Are Wakefield members and having a chat to one another.
We will then be treated to a speech from our Chair, Craig Shepherd, who many of you will have already had the pleasure of meeting through our other events. General Manager at Elis, Jonny, will then be presenting to us, letting us know what Elis does and what their plans for future growth look like. A Q&A will follow, making sure that all questions will be answered for all members.
At around 10.40am, the site tour will begin, taking around 20 minutes, which will then be followed by more networking opportunities. This will be the prefect chance for you to have a chat with Jonny and discuss how your business can work with Elis – or other fellow members to see how you can grow your businesses together!
Elis is a pan European textile and hygiene service provider in the Hospitality, Healthcare and ICS (Industry, Commerce and Service) sectors. The Wakefield plant is one of only nine in the UK, which employs more than 100 people and provides workwear, laundry and mat and washroom services to around 1,500 on a weekly basis.
This is a truly unique opportunity that we have been given and due to the fact the tour will be on a working site, we have had to cap numbers on this event and they are very limited – so make sure to get your tickets soon!
As the site is an industrial laundry facility, we do need to make it aware that all attendees will be asked to wear steel toe shoes/boots for anyone wanting to participate on the full tour. If you have your own, please do feel free to bring them along, if not don’t worry as they will be provided.
