- Whatís that building opposite us?

- Thatís the warehouse where the larger items of office equipment are stored. We try and keep a stock of the faster moving items so that urgent orders can be met quickly from stock.

- If I ordered something of these items today, how long would it be before I got delivery in Scotland?


- What would my work entail?

- Youíd be responsible to me for all advertising and to Mr. Grant for public relations. You would brief the agency, whoever it is, on the kind of advertising campaign we want. You would also be responsible for getting our leaflets, brochures and catalogues designed.


- Our prices are most reasonable. You can find this long-lasting furniture at cheap prices. There is certainly cheaper office equipment on the market. But when you look at the quality and finish I think we have no rivals.

- Quite so, quite so. Allís very interesting. Iím sure. Your prices are much too high. Look at these wastepaper bins Ė twice what Iíd pay for them elsewhere.

- Oh, but theyíre highly competitive when you consider quality.


- I see.

- Yes , they are complex instruments and also have to build them to various customers specifications. In the room we came through, we have Product Control keeping an eye on everything and making sure itís all going along to schedule. Every piece of equipment goes through testing in here.

- Iím very impressed.


- Now the next bit is very important: gross weight.

- Theyíll be packed into large crates. One will be seven hundred and twenty kilos and the other will come to seven hundred and fifty kilos.

- A total of one thousand four hundred and seventy then.

- Thatís right.

- And finally the nature and quantity of the goods.

- Right, well, there are two vehicles.
