Twenty years since the company was formed, Incom Business Systems celebrated its anniversary in style. Joint MDs David Hughes and Jason Kilvert flew 25 staff and partners to Paris for an all expenses paid weekend. “We wanted to do something special to celebrate the landmark of 20 years and to reward our hard-working team,” commented David Hughes. The party enjoyed fantastic views of the city from the top of the Eiffel Tower, tucked into an a la carte lunch on a cruise along the Seine, and experienced the amazing spectacle of the Brasil Tropicale caberet.
Staff described the complimentary trip as ‘overwhelming’ and ‘brilliant’ and said that they felt they were being rewarded for their commitment to the company. Engineering Manager, Paul Lowe said, “I felt that the weekend brought an already close team even closer.”
The company prides itself on having a low turnover of personnel and, during the Paris trip, staff were set a challenge to calculate the total number of years service for all current staff. Engineer, Shane White, and Sales Manager, Grant Counsell, won cash prizes for guessing closest to the actual figure of 177 years. David Hughes said, “During the period we have been in business, the developments in technology and equipment have been vast and we have adapted to market changes and adopted new technologies along the way. Being at the leading edge of the industry after twenty years in business is a massive achievement in itself; to have brought so many loyal colleagues along this fantastic journey is the icing on the cake.”
