The latest UK exports arrive in town

It’s coming up to four months since I touched down in Nova Scotia from merry old England, and so far, it’s been a blast. Discovering a new city has been an exciting experience, especially one that is as open and accessible as Halifax. On the strength of my previous visit here, I had anticipated a warm welcome for my family from the local community, but this has extended to the business environment.

And after driving for many years on the other side of the road, he brings new perspective. Go for a ride with Nic and you’re in safe hands.

So where are we going on this leap? That’s what we’re working out. It’s the first time I’ve had another person in addition to myself, taking the wheel to help build the business. And we’re looking at offering more services, better client relations, expanding production capacity and building the team. If you’re a small business person, it’s intimidating to make such a decision alone.
