When Wayne Strong first took over EmbroidMe East Tamaki back in late 2007 he said he wanted to reward the person who spent the 1 millionth dollar with him. He didn't expect it to come around quite so fast, but it did, on 17th November 2009. "We appreciate the business of all our customers, but there could only be one who spent the millionth dollar, and it happened to be Nova Therm" Mr Strong stated at the presentation. "We are pleased to be able to mark this milestone by rewarding a valued customer."
The lucky recipient of a Christmas hamper plus over $500 worth of complimentary caps with their logo embroidered on them was Nova Therm, a manufacturing company based in East Tamaki. "We are very surprised to receive these caps and were more than happy with the products and service we had received to date. We will definitely be placing further orders in the future" said Paul Vujcich, Managing Director of Nova Therm. EmbroidMe East Tamaki had just completed a substantial clothing order for the team at Nova Therm. In ongoing discussions caps were something that was being considered for the New Year. "It seemed like the obvious thing to me", Mr Strong confirmed. "We specifically chose something that we knew they were interested in, and would get a lot of use from"

"Turnover is actually up over 19% year to date compared to the previous year at the end of November, which is not bad for a recession is it?"

The demise of a number of their own direct competitors bearing witness to the difficulties experienced by many in 2009. However it would seem that making yourself more visible to your customers during tough times is something that a lot of companies have taken up with some enthusiasm. Mr Strong advised "People are realising they need to ensure that staff uniforms are up to scratch in order to portray a professional image. As well as being good at what you do, you need to look the part as well. We have even had some businesses that have been around for many years adopting a uniform for the first time."
