Andrew Barry, OUTCO CEO:
“I had an unexpected call from Amazon today; OUTCO was discussed at their senior leadership team meeting yesterday. They asked to pass on their thanks to all of the OUTCO Team for the fantastic job we have been doing on their sites this winter [2020/2021]. Amazon have managed to remain 100% operational at all times, despite some of the most challenging weather we have seen in many years. This is no insignificant feat and is a key performance indicator for their business so they are very pleased”
