Seabourne Express proud to be sponsoring FC Eindhoven

IMG_4965

FC Eindhoven is a Dutch football club based in Eindhoven, North Brabant. They currently play in the Eerste Divisie (second tier of Dutch football), and are one of two professional clubs which are based in the city of Eindhoven, the other one being PSV Eindhoven. Seabourne Express is a proud sponsor of FC Eindhoven.

Proud to be linked to the Mossbourne Federation

Sir Clive Bourne was the sponsor and the inspiration behind Mossbourne School. Following great success, the school in turn led to the creation of the Mossbourne Federation, four schools working to realise Sir Clive’s dream to provide the children of Hackney with an outstanding education;an impressive lasting legacy of which Seabourne are proud.

As well as focusing on the expansion of Seabourne, Sir Clive Bourne also dedicated a lot of time to community projects. He believed that the children of Hackney were being incorrectly blamed for the failure of schools in the borough to reach good educational standards and that the real reasons lay elsewhere. As a successful business man who grew up in Hackney, Sir Clive believed that the problem lay with the schools themselves and not with the students; he felt that the schools’ low expectations and assumptions about what Hackney children were capable of achieing were the root of the problem. “OK is good enough” was not a mantra he was prepared to put up with.

The creation of Mossbourne Academy in 2007 was the beginning of an ongoing commitment to raising educational achievement in Hackney. Built on the Hackney Downs boys’ school, the academy has achieved Ofsted’s rating of ‘outstanding’, and has seen students achieve places in high ranking universities such as Cambridge.

For the past 12 years Mossbourne has continued to demonstrate how right Sir Clive’s belief really was. Every year its students achieve extraordinary academic success. The Mossbourne approach is based on the same principles it has always adhered to: outstanding quality of teaching and learning across a broad curriculum, with high expectations of every student.

In 2015 the Mossbourne Federation opened a second secondary school in Hackney, Mossbourne Victoria Park Academy, and in 2015 two new primary schools, Mossbourne Riverside Academy (in the Olympic Park) and Mossbourne Parkside Academy.

Sir Clive Bourne’s dream
Mossbourne is the realisation of Sir Clive Bourne’s dream to provide the children of Hackney with an outstanding education. Mossbourne is built on a formula of high expectations, doing the simple things right, and the belief that all children can succeed.
Now with two primary and two secondary academies, the calm Mossbourne Federation schools’ working atmosphere creates well-rounded individuals who excel in the arts, on the sporting field and academically. All learners, regardless of ability, benefit from the innovative and enlightened approaches to teaching and learning they experience within the family of schools.

Lady Joy Bourne, who remains on the Board of Seabourne Group, was involved in the planning of the school with Sir Clive Bourne, and still takes an active role in the schools development as a sponsor governor. In addition, our very own Group MD, Daniel, is a member of the governors for the original Mossbourne School.

Total flexibility, complete commitment and a personal service

One of the world´s biggest home electrical suppliers contacted us with an urgent need following the purchase of stock to fulfil a large order for one of the UK’s biggest retailers. The home electrical supplier needed to supply 17,000 units of a specific model of coffee maker in time for the retailer’s January sale, but had no available UK stock. Therefore, the home electrical supplier shipped excess European stock from Germany and France to one of Seabourne’s UK facilities in order that the units could be converted to be UK compliant.

The units had European plugs on and the home electrical retailer contacted Seabourne originally on the basis we could change the plugs to a UK specification very cost effectively, as we have often done for this customer at this time of year previously. However, Seabourne were also able to assist in replacing other non UK items that came with the appliance.  We helped coordinate the inbound shipments of stock, 4 way pallets (UK standard size), leaflets to be included with the coffee makers and starter packs of coffee also to be added to each unit.

Total flexibility, complete commitment and a personal service.
Seabourne sourced legally compliant UK plugs with the correct fuses within 48 hours as well as sourcing new barcoded labels compliant with UK legislation which were printed on-site to be applied to the units once they had had their plugs changed.
Seabourne set up two production lines to utilise our skilled and qualified permanent staff effectively whilst using further temporary staff to fulfil less skilled roles. This enabled us to maximise the number of units processed each day.
All of the stock was delivered to our Seabourne facility in Northampton within 3 days of the initial request where we had all the materials and arrangements in place to be ready to begin work immediately. Seabourne completed an average of 1,200 units every day, working extended shifts and weekends and arranging for multiple collections of the reprocessed stock every day in order to meet the tight deadlines set.
Alongside changing the plugs we replaced the leaflets, relabelled the units, placed leaflets and starter packs inside and flash tested the units to ensure electrical safety. The stock was then palletised, wrapped and loaded for onward despatch. The customer was very happy with the quick turnaround and the quality of the work fulfilled, and they have since enjoyed working with us further on similar projects.

Seabourne Group and Mossbourne Community Academy
