SMART by name, smart by nature

Office SMART team with the new smart car

It is now a case of ‘Office SMART by name, office smart by nature’ for a growing Cornish company, which is putting a new division on the road to success with the first model of an all-new fleet.

Redruth-based Office SMART has taken delivery of a new smart fortwo coupé that will be used as a pool car, but predominantly by Unlocking Cornish Potential  candidate Shiraz Jiwa in his new role as marketing manager for the firm’s Office Interiors Division.

The official launch of the Office Interiors Division, says MD Barry Wilkinson, is a natural progression for the family-run firm, which was set up eight years ago. The newly-created department builds upon existing projects such as moving multi-billion pound company Nuon Renewables from Long Rock to Penzance, as well as the re-fit of Hayle Community School.

And commenting on the new car, Wilkinson added: “The smart car is made for us not only because of the name but even the colour scheme which is identical to our own. But whilst the car is a real head-turner, we are also conscious about our impact on the environment and the smart will enable us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint compared to our previous vehicles.”
