September Newsletter

A warm welcome to our first newsletter from The Excellence Group! My name is Richard Lurie and I am fortunate enough to lead our group of companies and our remarkably talented and passionate people, who are at the centre of everything we do.

Our intention for this newsletter is to keep you abreast of exciting new happenings within The Excellence Group (TEG) as well as updating you on current and relevant industry news and products. We hope to add value to the people who share our passion for the industry. We will be sending our newsletter out every 6 weeks. If you have received this – you are on our TEG database, this means we have worked on a project together or one of our team members already has a relationship with you. If you would prefer to opt out of receiving this newsletter, feel free to unsubscribe below. The Excellence Group is proudly home to luxury-kitchen designers Valcucine, engineered surfacing experts Infin8 Surfacing, wood craftsmen Craft Furniture, Italian kitchen creators Eurocasa and local joinery manufacturers Spotlight Joinery. With a global pandemic, a nationwide lockdown and the constant uncertainty of the future, it felt difficult to stay positive and focused. And yet, weirdly enough, it seems as if we learnt so much in our home offices over those weeks. We learnt to celebrate the ‘small’ successes, we learnt to operate our business digitally but most importantly, we learnt to appreciate each other more than ever, which in turn made our TEG team one tight-knit unit… and this unit has come back stronger than ever! I hope that you enjoy the read and we welcome all interaction, feedback and engagement!
