S & D Sealants has succeeded in bucking the trend for the recession-gripped construction industry by chalking up a record breaking start to 2013.
S&D increased turnover by 78 percent in the first two months of the year compared to the same period in 2012.
Nick Jones, Managing Director of S&D Sealants, said: “Scotland has been a major growth area for us and with a lot of our work linked to the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, this looks set to continue.
“Our recent run of work means that we are actively recruiting across the UK, we need a number of experienced applicators to ensure that we can keep up with demand. This should actually be a quiet period for us and if we’re this busy now, we’re confident that we will have enough work to support at least five new members of staff.”
In 2012 S&D Sealants enjoyed a five percent growth and already the company looks set to improve on this in 2013 with increased activity and an ever expanding order book.
With a network of offices across the UK, S&D employs 75 staff and offers true national coverage by using a group of local sealant operatives to carry out specific projects. Their UK office expansion includes bases in Exeter, Wakefield, Fareham, Warrington, Bristol and Romford.
S&D regularly works with a wide variety of well-known construction companies including BAM, Balfour Beatty, Wilmott Dixon, Laing O’Rourke, Sir Robert McAlpine and Morgan Sindall.
