FSP report sales boom in UK and beyond

FACTA member Fabweld Steel Products, has reported a positive start to 2021, with a 30 per cent increase in sales thanks to export orders and a boom in online shopping. The Telford based access cover and fabricated steel products manufacturer says it has experienced the year-on-year rise in the first quarter of 2021 with much of the growth attributed to an increase in international orders and a boost from key customers in the UK. The upsurge follows on from an active 2020 that saw its exports rise to 20 per cent of total sales.
Managing Director, Richard Hilton, said many of the sectors FSP supplies are beginning to see recovery after the coronavirus crisis. “A portion of our sales so far this year is credited to UK-based builders’ merchants, which are seeing an increase in custom as lockdown restrictions have been eased and infrastructure and construction projects recommenced.  “We’ve also seen an increase in demand for steel products for online retailers like Amazon that are experiencing a boom in sales and therefore need to increase their warehouse capacity.”
