What the future holds
The last two years have been a challenge for Warmington, just like the majority of NZ businesses.
Warmington has needed to be flexible in order to deal with the differing guidance from the NZ government when it comes to sorting out COVID-19 in the workplace.
It also faces the challenge of changes to the competitive Solid Fuel heating market, but it is focused on keeping the team together and growing it in response to more demand.
Despite the fact inflation will be an issue in 2022, Warmington sees such challenges as a chance to keep improving, to be the designer, manufacturer, and home heating solutions provider that customers expect.
Warmington is fully staffed to manage the growth, and it is making investments in equipment to improve its processes and to keep training its team to meet demand.
Warmington loves to improve its business and it isn’t afraid to take challenges head on.
The business expects more growth, demand, and improvements in time to come.
