Shaken not stirred…

Will you be watching the new James Bond film Spectre?

The new film had it’s premier on Monday 26th October. The spy thriller, starring Daniel Craig featuring Sam Smith’s Writing’s On The Wall as the theme music.

SPECTRE gets its name from the acronym for “Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.” Ever since its foundation, its main goal has been to undermine the governments of the world, in hopes of one day ruling it. Some of their most infamous plots have involved the attempted radiating of Fort Knox’s gold supply, the ransom of two nuclear warheads found off the coast of the Bahamas, as well as various plots involving the sabotage of the space program.

Did you know that…

  •  SPECTRE is on track to be one the most expensive films ever made, costing over $300 million.
  • SPECTRE establishes a link between all of Daniel Craig’s Bond movies up to this point, as it features both documents from Bond’s childhood found in the ruins of Skyfall Lodge and the return of Mr White. Skyfall had no apparent link to both plots of Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale before.  
  • Directors Ang Lee, Tom Hooper, David Yates, Danny Boyle, Shane Black and Christopher Nolan were being considered to direct the film until Sam Mendes decided to come back after Skyfall.
  • Sam Mendes confirmed SPECTRE will be his last Bond film.

Here are some more facts about the film.

 1. While shooting in Rome, the Mayor allowed producers to shut the busiest road in the country off so that crew could film the high-speed car chase scene.
2. The crew of Spectre travelled to Morocco, Austria and Mexico to shoot the film.
3. Not just a road, but even a plaza in Mexico was shut for four days to shoot huge sequences in the film. The opening scene in Mexico shows the Dead Festivities, and it took six months to make costumes for the thousands of people involved.
4. Lucia, the character played by Monica Bellucci, is the James Bond’s oldest love interest at 50.
Bond is known for using many gadgets throughout the film in order to succeed at the task, and here at Masterflex we have our own set of gadgets, specialised tools and machinery to manufacture hoses and ductings for individual requirements.

Why not increase your stocks of flexible hoses and ducting from Masterflex?

Simply let us know what is passing through the hose, the size and length you need, and your order could be with you the next day on stock items.

Time to gain an hour!!!

clocks_990a

Clocks go back Sunday 29th October

What is the one thing people want more of?????

Well if it is Time that you are wanting then you are in luck!, as we will all be gaining an extra hour on Sunday. Yip Pee!!!!

The clocks should be put back 60 minutes at 1am on Sunday October 29. When the clocks go back, the UK will be back onto Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Mobile phones and other devices connected to the Internet should change automatically. Other devices, like cookers and ovens will need to be changed manually.

Clocks then move forward again on March.  The reason for changing the clocks twice a year is known as Daylight Saving Time and was brought in from 1907 to get people out of bed earlier during summer when it gets light from 4 to 5am even when the clocks have gone back. But there have been calls to scrap it entirely because of the adverse impact of nights drawing in earlier during winter.

So don’t forget Sunday 29th Oct to turn your clocks back 1 hour!

It’s back to work for everyone at Masterflex (hopefully everyone will turn in on time) manufacturing hoses and ducting to suit your individual requirements

Give the office a call to get a quote, sample or to make a purchase.

Trafalgar Day

lord nelson

Trafalgar Day

Today is the celebration of the victory won by the Royal Navy, commanded by Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson. He oversaw the combined French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21st October 1805 at Cape Trafalgar, off the coast of Spain. Today it is commonly referred to as Trafalgar Day.

The battle had massive repercussions for Napoleon’s France and the future of the British Empire. Admiral Lord Nelson commanded the fleet from HMS Victory but was mortally wounded in the engagement, so the event also commemorates and celebrates his life.

Wreaths are normally laid at Lord Nelson’s tomb in St Paul’s Cathedral and on board the Victory at Portsmouth on Trafalgar Day.

The historic signal “England expects….” is sent from the ship at 8am followed by a memorial service on board.

At Trafalgar Square in London, the Sea Cadets usually put on a display to showcase their skills at 11 am before marching to the Wellington Barracks on Birdcage Walk.

Traditionally this event has seen bands salute – the display lasts over an hour and has been a highlight of the Sea Cadets’ calendar for over a century.

Each year around 500 members of the Sea Cadets march from Horse Guards’ Parade to Nelson’s Column to mark Trafalgar Day.

Here at Masterflex, we are continuing with our legacy of manufacturing hoses and ducting for a wide range of industries.

If you use hoses in your job, but are unsure which type you use, contact us and we can help you in choosing the right product.
