20 Years of Outstanding Dedication and Loyalty Rewarded

Dan Vegas 2017Daniel Hills joined Futures Supplies & Support Services Ltd in 1997 as a Warehouse Assistant at just 16 years old. Over the ensuing 20 years, Dan progressed rapidly, acquiring additional skills through training, mentoring and experience, to the position of Office Manager and ultimately Operations Manager. Assuming responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the business his role now includes client support, order processing, purchasing and co-ordinating logistics.

Dan is a key member of the management team. He is remarkably dedicated, loyal and cheerfully supports the team fostering a friendly and collaborative environment with both his colleagues and clients alike.

His dedication and work ethic never waver and this was rewarded with an all-expenses paid surprise trip to Las Vegas in March.

Dan said “Vegas has always been on my wish list, I cannot tell you what a fabulous surprise it was and how grateful I am. What an amazing time I had, I can’t put it into words. I am blessed to work at such an amazing company with a great team of people – roll on the next twenty years.”

Founder and CEO Mandie Kemp’s belief is that there is more to business than the bottom line. Futures Supplies has always been committed to the support and development of young people. It has offered apprenticeships and work placements to young people providing training and experience to help build their confidence with a view to catalysing long-term employment.

Vegas 2017

Mandie says, “Responsible business, sometimes referred to as corporate social responsibility or CSR, is at the core of our business strategies and Dan living breathing proof of this. I congratulate him for his long service, he is an inspiration and I wish him continued success in his role for many years to come. I hope the trip goes some way to shows how much we truly appreciate his loyalty, hard work and dedication.”

Making a Clear and Credible Commitment – Celebrating Ten Years of Certification!

Futures Supplies is delighted to have its green credentials independently endorsed for the tenth year running achieving the credible and sought after Carbon Neutral certification. This is a highly sought after accolade and recognises the company as an industry leader in its field for its environmental commitment and for delivering carbon neutral supplies to its customers.

Carbon Neutral Certified LogoWe are proud to be taking a net zero position on emissions by measuring the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with our business, reducing them at source and then offsetting any unavoidable emissions by purchasing carbon credits.

Supporting the Andipatti Wind Power Project located in the state of Tamil Nadu, India, this 49.5MW wind power project delivers zero-emissions renewable electricity to the Southern regional grid. The project is validated and ‘Verified Carbon Standard’ (VCS).

This wind farm consists of 30 Vestas turbines, each of capacity of 1.65 MW, generating approximately 100,000 MWh of clean renewable electricity annually. This reduces CO2 emissions by displacing electricity which would have otherwise been drawn primarily from fossil fuel power stations; subsequently, the Andipatti Wind Power Project generates 90,000 tonnes of emissions reductions on average per year.

Demonstrating our commitment to reducing CO2 in accordance with leading edge quality assurance standards, the CarbonNeutral trademark is one of the worlds most recognised and robust brand marks for greenhouse gas emission reduction.

As a result of this reduction process coupled with offering the unavoidable emissions associated with our business, our carbon footprint is reduced to net zero.
