People and staff are what make H.W. Wood succeed

An interesting future ahead with AI and blockchain
When asked about how the future of the industry looks, Mr Rudduck is optimistic. He said: “Now we have robotics, artificial intelligence, blockchain, and so many other new technologies, which I personally believe will completely revolutionise the industry as we know it.
“Technology has been biggest and most notable development during my career… I remember my first job was to deliver telex messages. Telex messages was how we would send written messages electronically between businesses. All the messages would be printed off on one long role of paper that could fill a room, and every morning we would come in early, cut out the messages, and hand them out to the staff.
