"As 2018 draws to a close, we wanted to take a minute out from the end-of-year rush to get everything finished off, to say a few words.
"It's been a great first year for us and the IPEX team - we couldn't have imagined how well when we started out.
"Celebrating our first birthday in September was a real highlight.
"It felt great to bring our team together and take some time out to talk about our plans for the business. We also enjoyed bringing in some of our trusted partners to present on inspiring topics, from using sports psychology to build teams to the work of our charity partner, Manchester Cares.
"We've also recently completed our move to our new offices in Altrincham, taking over a bigger and more exciting space that we're looking forward to making our own over the coming months - we'll be sharing more about that in the New Year."
"For us, working with our customers and our teams is one of the absolute best things about doing what we do.
"When we established IPEX, we wanted to put the human relationship back into the heart of telecommunications, and with the help of the dedicated and talented people who have joined us, and the customers who are putting their trust in us, we feel we're achieving that.
"Our chosen charity partner remains Manchester Cares, an amazing organisation connecting young and old people experiencing isolation across Greater Manchester.
"There's still time to make a real difference to a vulnerable older person in Manchester today.
"Please do consider even a small donation."DONATE NOW
"Thank you again for supporting IPEX at the beginning of our journey - we sincerely appreciate it.
"We're looking forward to next year and our next chapter and hope that you'll continue to support us.
"Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
