Back to Basics
Westshield goes ‘back to basics’. Despite the 2008/2009 UK recession and some testing times, Westshield weathered the storm and emerged, although very much battered and bruised.
Over the next few years, the company consolidated and regrouped to become the far stronger business that it is today.
This was a testament to the business ethos and the resilience of its people at that time.
