As one of the UKs first specialists in industrial door repair Stanair, with a depot in Peterborough, has over 40 years serving business across the UK.

The company has service, reliability and trust at the heart of everything it does. It is a consistent and engaging investor in the local community including the continued support of business and community awards, young grass roots sportsmen and women and professional teams.

Peterborough United, known by many as The Posh, have received Stanair’s support for a number of years now, and for season ticket holders, you’ll recognise their iconic logo on a board at the ABAX Stadium.

Kings Lynn Speeday, just a short distance from the county’s border, has been a firm favourite with Stanair customers, who have often been entertained by the exciting races taking place at the Adrian Flux Arena.

As a business, Stanair’s ethos is all about its people and it is with that in mind the company has also continued to invest in the recognition and celebration of local business success. That is why they are backing the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards in 2017.

“Our business is all about people and people are what drives a successful business in an ever challenging economic world.” said Sheena Markham, a Director at Stanair. “That is why we like to play our part in recognising achievement and bringing people together to recognise what a great county we have, what great firms big and small we have and what a real difference they are making every day.”

We all use Google because we know, like and trust it to deliver the best results. Google makes its money by showing ads called AdWords or sponsored links. That’s what we do all day, every day and have done since 2007. We work with dozens of clients who know that Search, Display, Remarketing, Shopping, Mobile, YouTube and Gmail campaigns are key parts of their marketing strategy and outsource their campaign activity to us for efficiency and peace of mind. My Mustard clients also enjoy the benefits of LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pay per click advertising opportunities.
The recipe for My Mustard is pretty straightforward: Take eight professional women, two rather splendid young men, a joke-telling pig-rabbit, the world’s biggest search engine, some forward-thinking customers, and mix well. Add hours of number crunching, extensive market research, some seriously creative writing, a lot of patience, a bucketful of tenacity and a Bit of luck. Sprinkle with endless enthusiasm and serve hot.
“The winner is the chef who takes the same ingredients as everyone else and produces the best results.”
We work really hard and we are nice people to do business with. We realised on day one that we can only do well if our clients do well so we try to stay focused on their success at all times. We really like what we do and it shows…. and we always play to win.
