      I have 11 GCSEs (Four As, six Bs, and one C), 4 A levels (Maths, Physics, Theatre Studies, and Psychology), and a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
      I’m not too sure what my industry size is, as it is quite broad. One thing I have heard is that we are the last hospital bed manufacturer left in the UK, which is quite scary – most beds are now manufactured in Europe or America. Across the world there are much larger companies than us, but I think it is a very good thing that we are able to make beds that don’t have to travel very far to get to hospitals in the UK.
      Unfortunately there will always be people who are sick, disabled, or in need of operations, so we will always need equipment and apparatus to care for them. I am very happy that I am able to contribute to this and do my bit to help people in their recovery.
