Olmec

I thought it best if everyone knows what the REAL situation is with Olmec and what has happened.
The company is now in liquidation, there are many contributing factors to why this happened which i will not go in to.
In the past i have made some mistakes with Olmec, some big mistakes too which i am now seeking to rectify, i am now a sole trader and undertaking the same line of work but on my own. I now build all of the tubes which go out of my workshop and i also fit them, this way i can make absolutely damn sure that everything is as it should be when it leaves to go to the customer.
I will continue in this line of work and believe that i am good at it, what i'm not good at as i have discovered is managing a business with several people working for me.

I hope that this puts those people who are interested in the picture.

Best of luck to you! I'm glad that you've come on here and held your hand high.

I'm all for fresh beginnings and hope you can re-invent yourself.

Good to yer

Hope all goes well for you, Plenty of room for one man with a good service and good quality product in the rib world. I know, I have a set of your tubes, and I would have them again given the chance, top quality.

A partnership might be good. With Dan Cooper perhaps?

Do you think so? I ran a business with my name in the title for many years. If a job went wrong it was MY fault. The fact that one of my employees may have been responsible or a supplier supplied us with crap material was irrelevant as far as the customer was concerned. The job had to be done again regardless of loss until done properly. No blaming others or phone avoidance. If Ribraff has now decided that he is a poor businessman, why is he going back into business? Perhaps employment or a decent business minded partner could be a better route, maybe not Dan Cooper.

All the best Ed,good to hear from you again,hold your head up high,don't listen to any of the crap some people like to dish out,If they can't say anything positive they should keep their opinions to themselves! In the mean time,keep your phone on you,will have a job for you in the near future,which I am sure will be the same brilliant standard as the one you did on my Searider a few years ago!!
