Why Six Works became James and James
On 1 May 2013, Six Works became James and James Fulfilment - with a completely new look and feel. Some of you might wonder why such a dramatic change, so we thought we'd explain.
We initially chose the name Six because it was concise, modern and communicated the technical nature of the business. However, we felt the name and branding as it stood didn’t reflect our ethos.
By changing the name to James and James Fulfilment, we hope this will communicate who we are, that the company is as much about people as it is about process and that we are serious about what we do and why we are doing it. We don't want to be just another fulfilment company - we want to offer a different way of thinking. (Or it could be that we are fed up with people pointing out that it's odd we’re both called James!)
So from today Six Works Ltd will become James and James Fulfilment Ltd - although we still disagree about who the first James is. After two very successful years for the business in terms of new clients and technological developments we hope to further improve and offer a even better service as James and James Fulfilment in 2013.
For those of you who will miss the name Six, you may be comforted to know the name will not be totally wiped out. Our fulfilment system and your portals into it has been lacking a name other than “the system” since it when live in 2010 - so from now on it will be officially called Six. We will log into to Six, and James and James Fulfilment will provide live reporting via Six. You get the picture.
