Seasonal greetings from our Chairman
Another very successful, exciting, and interesting year. We have remained totally adaptable and continued to offer market-leading services throughout.
Our priority has always been the safety and wellbeing of our employees and our customers. The fact that we have been able to ensure the safety of all on site is mainly due to the diligence and expertise of our safety team.
We now directly employ 80 people and we have not needed to furlough any of our employees this year, in fact, we are continuing to recruit. We have had another record year increasing turnover to over £57 million. There are a number of factors which have helped us achieve these being; continued loyalty of our long-established client base, backed up by the diligence and commitment of our excellent employees.
Our clients trust us and value our total independence as we are one of the largest independent British supply companies, focused only on the Sale and Hire of Scaffolding and Access equipment. While I am Chairman and majority shareholder, I will always be committed to this strategy. Our clients can talk to us at any level to help plan and discuss major projects with absolute confidentiality.
Despite fluctuating Steel and Timber prices through the year combined with escalating container prices, we have had no major supply chain issues.
Moving forward into 2022 we are anticipating a continuation of high demand and are well geared up with stocks to accommodate even further growth. We have now also acquired another new large warehouse and yard to improve both storage and Health and Safety Management.
On behalf of myself and the board of Directors, I would like to sincerely thank all our staff and customers and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
