The Sales Manager Building

Once you have arrived and walked through the main gate, you will notice a glass door on the right with a number of signs outside it, one being for The Sales Manager.
The door will automatically be unlocked from 9:30am – it’s quite a heavy door, but give it a good push and you’ll get into the reception area.
You’ll see a glass table directly in front of you as you come through the door, there is a handset on the table which you can use to ring extension 23 – The Sales Manager office. Someone will be on hand to answer and come and let you into the main building.
