|KFC from PVL...|
Should you notice a strong smell of fried chicken and chips as a silver Mercedes passes you in the High Street, that will be PVL’s Head of Sales and Marketing on his way to a meeting. David Almond has discovered that many of his OEM customers rather prefer some Kentucky Fried Chicken and chips to the salad sandwiches that they tell their wives they eat every day, and is leading Purchasing Managers and Design Engineers all over Britain astray with his Mephistophelian ways. So if you encounter an overweight Purchasing Manager who smells like David’s Mercedes, you can rely on it that PVL called for a meeting at lunchtime.
If you then discover that your company’s expenditure on pressure switches, or flow switches, or temperature transducers, or whatever you use most of has gone down, even though you are making more of your products, then you can be even more sure that a deal was done over the chicken breasts – perhaps with a slight whiff of sulphur. A quick look at www.pvl.co.uk will show you the cornucopia of technological wizardry that David has available to persuade his customers that a lunchtime meeting would be a good idea. Or you could phone 01892 664499 for counselling. Our engineering team are now accustomed to listening to the after-lunch confessions of David’s customers, and to recommending PVL’s favourite sandwich shop as a source of suitable penance – but watch out for the sultry senorita behind the counter.
And, if you are contemplating a significant OEM order for the knock-out products at www.pvl.co.uk, have a taste for Kentucky Fried Chicken and don’t mind the odd white lie at home, call 01892 664499 and give the password. This week it is ‘tender breasts are best’.
Sarah is back!
PVL customers who were phoning us to get engineering advice, an agreeable chat and the best deals in components for pressure, vacuum, level, flow and temperature more than five years ago, will surely remember the dulcet tones of Sarah Berndt, who was often the first welcome voice on the phone. Sarah first worked for Steve Moorey, PVL’s Managing Director, over twenty years ago when, according to Steve, she still sported pigtails and a gym slip (better check on the employment laws, Steve). Having married and continued to work at PVL until 2005, Sarah left when she was about to produce her first daughter, and has since had a second .
But now she’s back! Unable to resist the lure of the customary PVL mayhem, she is back bringing quite unaccustomed semi-Teutonic order to the sales office. So if you recognise a voice from your past when you phone 01892 664499, it could just be Sarah. You have our permission to say hello.
