Well readers, it’s nearly time for us to sign off for Christmas, so we’d like to say thank you for a fantastic 2012. It’s been a busy year, with new products, great sales, TV appearances and even a few awards thrown in – and it’s all thanks to your support!

Merry Christmas from Worktop Express!

Dec 14

Only two more weekends ‘til the holidays start, and as you can probably tell, we’ve come over all festive.

Therefore – as an early Christmas gift – we’re letting you in on a little secret. As you know, we’re working harder than ever right now – and sometimes the name ‘Worktop Express®’ just takes too long to type/write/say… so, now and then, an affectionate shortening is used among staff. ‘Worktop Express®’ becomes the ultra-modern-sounding ‘WEX’. We think the name has a nice ring to it, though we only roll it out on special occasions…

Lucky for us all, this is one of those times! And what better way to celebrate Christmas and petnames than with a jolly old singalong? So, here we go – you know the tune, but the words are ours!

US:
We wish you a Merry WEXmas;
We wish you a Merry WEXmas;
We wish you a Merry WEXmas and a Happy Worktop!
Good oil we bring, from the team at Rustins,
Good oil for a Merry WEXmas and a Happy Worktop.

We wish you a Merry WEXmas;
We wish you a Merry WEXmas;
We wish you a Merry WEXmas and a Happy Worktop!
Your cutouts will gleam, thank you Fabrication team,
Good cutting for WEXmas and a Happy Worktop.

YOU:
Oh, bring us a prime oak sample;
Oh, bring us a prime oak sample;
Oh, bring us a prime oak sample and throw in a walnut!
We can’t choose until we get one,
We can’t choose until we get one,
We can’t choose until we get one, so send a 2Man van out!

ALL TOGETHER NOW:
We wish you a Merry WEXmas;
We wish you a Merry WEXmas;
We wish you a Merry WEXmas and a Happy Worktop!

We Wish You A Merry WEXmas

The Worktop Express® showroom has been enjoying a busy festive season – just how we like it! We’re constantly updating our space with little bits and bobs to surprise our visitors; for example, we recently introduced some snazzy islands (featuring full stave wenge, full stave oak and a lovely butcher’s block), and these have been a big hit.

If you can’t make it over to see us this year but are tempted to come in the New Year, why not pick up the latest edition of Essential Kitchen Bathroom and Bedroom for a tantalising glimpse? The Worktop Express® showroom is featured in the showroom roundup; we’re really looking forward to grabbing our copy and hope customers will find it equally inspiring.

The January issue of Essential Kitchen Bedroom Bathrooms is on sale for a month from December 6th 2012 – don’t miss it!

No-one can ever say that our bloggers do not care about their work. Every month we watch them, hunched over keyboards, typing furiously as the Worktop Express® team bombard their email inboxes with more and more news that desperately needs publication…

And sometimes we even send them into the field! Last month, one of our keenest and most experienced staff boldly went where no writer has gone before: into the heart of the 2Man Operation. Yes, our writer spent a whole day on the vans, noting down each twist and turn of the vehicle as it proudly navigated precious Worktop Express® cargo direct to our customers’ homes. We have it on good authority that ‘though the weather outside was frightful, the singing in the van was so delightful…!’

If you’d like to read more about the experience, please check out our new information guide: ‘A Day in the Life of a 2Man Van’.
