A Huge Thank You to Our SUPER-6
The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us many things. One of the key lessons learned is that heroes come in all shapes and sizes…and a huge array of job roles.
Amongst those on the frontline of keeping the country moving – in more ways than one – during the pandemic has been our team of HGV Drivers. Dedicated and committed to getting the job done, regardless of the challenges involved, our team of Paul Oxborrow, Peter Bolshaw, Wesley Smith, Mark Robinson, Paul Brown and Ken Woods are now affectionately known as the SUPER-6 here at AIS Vanguard, thanks to their central role in delivering projects during lockdown.
Not only was this team key to our ability to deliver time-critical, complex and diverse projects across the country during lockdown, they were also involved in mobilising the Nightingale Field Hospitals. We were part of the integrated team that transformed events spaces into hospitals within days across the UK, and our SUPER-6 team of drivers were at the sharp end of that challenge, with responsibility for delivering the right assets to the right place, aligned to a time-sensitive programme.
It’s impossible to overstate how proud the company is of the way in which the whole AIS Vanguard team has stepped up and approached the crisis with a can-do attitude so that we could continue to keep our promises to our customers.
Our HGV drivers have taken a no-nonsense approach to getting the job done, day-in-day-out, week after week during lockdown. They have worked far away from home, and often over weekends where necessary, to get the job done safely and on time. They’ve consistently gone the extra mile, not just for the Nightingale Hospital projects, but for every job that needed our involvement. Thanks to our SUPER-6, production equipment has been moved from A to B to keep supply chains running, contributing to the whole national effort; from hospitals to supermarket shelves.
The success of AIS Vanguard has always been built on teamwork; amongst the interdisciplinary team we employ and across the collaborative partnerships with clients. It’s been inspiring to see just how embedded that culture, driving our team to give their all to support our customers and our colleagues during the challenging times of COVID-19.
It’s clear that the ‘new normal’ will continue to require an agile approach and can-do mindset and our SUPER-6 have proved that they have those attributes in spades. On behalf of our colleagues, our leadership team and our clients, we want to say thank you to all six of them, we are very proud of what you’ve achieved.
