The Power of Partnerships

Mark Robinson at Brett Martin looks at how the company’s commitment to building meaningful partnerships has enabled them to continue to stay at the top of their game.

Establishing a reputation as a global industry leader is hard enough, but maintaining that position and continuing to deliver best-in-class products can be even more challenging.  It’s a similar scenario in the word of sport.  It undoubtedly takes a lot of hard work and dedication to become a champion, but even harder to stay on top of the podium. Just consider the breadth of support it takes one athlete to win gold – There are the coaches, the physios, the nutritionists, not to mention family members all working hard to provide a much needed boost behind the scenes to allow them to succeed. 

There is no doubt we have a wealth of talent at Brett Martin to enable us to develop some of the most exciting, cutting-edge semi-finished foam PVC, polycarbonate, PET and acrylic products.  Yet we still recognise the importance of collaborative partnerships and teamwork to ensure our products constantly evolve to suit our customer’s requirements as well as perform to the highest standards consistently, and with precision, with the latest technologies.  Let’s face it, there’s no point having the perfect product if it doesn’t perform perfectly with our customers’ cutting, printing or thermoforming equipment.

That’s exactly why we introduced our Approved Partners programme to give our customers the confidence and assurance that our range of semi-finished products can be processed consistently to the highest standards on the most widely used machinery in the industry.  Building positive and mutually beneficial partnerships in any business is one of the most important foundations for success. Indeed, for Brett Martin, teaming up with the world’s leading manufacturers of processing equipment, in essence, gives us unrivalled access to some of the most technically advanced, live ‘testing laboratories’ we could ever wish for – something that simply wouldn’t be possible without this level of collaboration with our Approved Partners.  What’s more, it is something that enables us to keep our products at the cutting edge of industry.  These partnerships ensure we are constantly improving and developing our range of materials for changing customer needs, and that we keep up to date with the latest in processing technologies.  

At a time when economic challenges are facing every single business, working with quality products, and having confidence that they’ll provide consistent high-level performance, is vital.  By establishing our Approved Partners programme, our customers can minimise product wastage and maximise output from the very outset by eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming trials and test runs. After all, when times are tough, time is money and every second and every penny counts.
