Founded in 1979 by Peter Colyer, the company in Crewe (UK) has extensively celebrated its 40th anniversary in November 2019 together with all its English and Dutch employees, a number of former employees and all partners.
The main strength of Custom Powders lies in the fact that all employees form a very close-knit team of experienced, motivated and qualified employees, some of whom have worked together in their company since it was founded.
It was decided to celebrate this memorable fact in a memorable way with the entire team in the Netherlands’ most appealing city – Amsterdam.
On Friday, November 22, the entire English party flew with a reserved private plane from Manchester to Schiphol, from where it was transported by private taxis to the Radison Blue Hotel, in the heart of Amsterdam. Here they were united with the Dutch company and the weekend could be kicked off with a joint buffet. A large part of the group went out after the buffet for a first introduction to the nightlife of Amsterdam.
On Saturday, everyone had the opportunity to view the city by daylight on their own. Full of enthusiasm, everyone went out alone or in groups of their own choosing to discover their own Amsterdam.
In the evening everyone came together for a joint drink and dinner in the Amsterdam Tower – a fantastic location overviewing the IJ-river with a panoramic overview of Amsterdam at night.
The weekend ended on Sunday with a 3-hour boat trip through the Amsterdam canals and connecting waterways to see the city from a completely different point of view. An extensive buffet was enjoyed on board, after which everyone could start the return journey rested and satisfied.
It was fantastic to see how all the mutual ties in this diverse group were strengthened and how new friendships were formed. The farewell was therefore heartwarming and very cordial.The owner and founder of the company, Peter Colyer, can look back with pride and satisfaction on a great team weekend and on what he has been able to build together with his employees over 40 years.
