A Review of 2018

11th December 2018

Review of 2018

As another year comes to an end we look at what happened in 2018, the highs and lows, the winners and losers, and what's likely to happen in 2019.

Uncertainty over Brexit and especially the type of trading landscape that will be available after the UK exits the EU, meant some manufacturers and some suppliers put plans and decisions on hold. This is a shame, because if, like Durey Castings Limited, they had embraced the market place and explored new ways of fulfilling customer's needs, they would have found an industry eager to press on with existing projects, commence new ventures and explore alternative products and supply routes.

During 2018 Durey Castings increased their sales in 3 key areas.

Sales in the area of Utilities increased dramatically. BT sales up. Electricity, Gas and Water sales up. TV, CCTV and data network sales up.

Special contracts, using mainly bespoke covers and gratings were up by a similar percentage.

The other big increase was in the area of Local Authority sales. A large jump in Durey specified products, many unique to ourselves, resulted in a jump in supply to councils, Transport for London, ports, airports and cycleways.

Sales were also up in Bedding mortars, rapid setting concretes, instant tarmacs and paving grouts.

Durey Castings would like to thank all its staff for the tremendous effort they put into making 2018 another successfull year.

Our Flood Protection product division had a number of high profile successes this year too. Targets for sales of flood products were smashed. If you'd like to know more about these products contact our Fareham Office on 0139 448135.
