Rally team drop in to meet Andrews staff in London

Last week, the European Rally Championship leaders took time out of their busy schedule to come and meet company employees at our flagship depot in Charlton.

Chris Ingram travelled south from Manchester via Milton Keynes, where co-driver Elliott Edmondson is based, and the pair arrived in an Opel Adam similar to the car they use on the rallying circuit.

UK Operations Director, David Himsworth, was on hand to give both men a tour of the premises, offering them an insight into our day-to-day operations. This also enabled a broad spectrum of employees to finally meet Chris and Elliott almost eighteen months after their involvement with Andrews Heat for Hire began.

An informal discussion then followed which allowed the marketing team, senior directors and of course Chris and Elliott themselves to review the past few months and look ahead to future opportunities.

It had previously been decided that we would display a signed picture of the branded rally car in each depot, and so the two rally fanatics were busy practicing their autographs during the afternoon!

As expected, their visit was extremely well-received by staff and enabled us to plan for upcoming rallies – the next of which takes place in the Czech Republic over the bank holiday weekend.

At the halfway stage of the European Rally Championships, Chris and Elliott have an eight-point lead over their nearest rivals. Naturally, we would like to wish them all the best in the pursuit of glory and hope that their quest to retain the ERC U27 title is successful!
