Introducing Emma, our newest staff member...

Those of you calling the office to speak to us will probably already have had the pleasure of speaking to our newest SMB team member Emma Bower, who joined us last October. She has been busy learning all she can about bearings & has now officially passed her probation.

Its an amazing challenge to learn all the technical aspects of bearings, especially in a busy office environment, but Emma is doing an amazing job & is still smiling, mores the miracle! Even our esteemed leader Chris (whose been in the bearing trade since the 1980's) commented:
"it takes longer than you think to get to grips with bearings. I'm still learning (a bit)!!" :-)

Emma hard at work, processing your orders...

Emma is now responsible for fielding your sales enquiries by phone, fax & email, processing your orders, general office administration & a host of other day to day responsibilities
& quite frankly we'd be lost without her!
Welcome to the team Emma :-)

Harry Redstone's BRCA Micro Nationals, the season so far...

Harry, mid Micro race preparation...

The Redstone racing fleet in all it's glory :-)

Our mate Harry Redstone is a keen young competitor in the BRCA Micro Nationals (when he's not busy competing in the SRS series) & so far he's had a pretty eventful season - he's doing so well by round 3 in Dudley that he rated a mention as the top junior competitor in RC News magazine!

The micro track set out for round 3 of the BRCA Micro Nationals competition at Dudley

This video gives you a real flavour of just how fast and furious these micro RC races can be:

Well done Harry, keep up the great work!

How our bearings are made...

We found this fab old vid on Youtube & thought it was definitely worth a share...

Admittedly a bit geeky, but still cool!

Schaeffer Mclean & friends at Ronda Skatepark...

If you're thinking "Gosh, it looks sunny for Wales" the vid was filmed in Ronda, Spain as opposed to Rhondda in South Wales :-)
