Pallet trucks can lift SMEs to new heights

As the country’s economy continues to support small and medium sized businesses, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of pallet and pump trucks to a wide range of sectors, is highlighting the importance of pallet trucks and other warehouse equipment to SMEs to ensure they stay competitive within the industry for years to come.

Despite the economic uncertainty the country has been facing over the last decade, small and medium sized businesses are on the rise. In fact, a survey conducted last year stated that small businesses accounted for a staggering 99.3% of all private sector businesses, with 99.9% of those being SMEs. Midland Pallet Trucks, who has over 30 years’ experience providing top quality equipment, has welcomed the news that the number of small businesses has increased, and has actively encouraged them to invest in equipment in order to futureproof their businesses.

Phil Chesworth Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, said, “It’s extremely encouraging that small businesses are on the rise. However it’s important that SMEs continue to invest in equipment so they can stay competitive within the industry and ensure long-term success. Equipment such as pallet trucks, stacker trucks and lift tables are all extremely useful for a whole range of SMEs, yet provide excellent value for money. For those who are looking to firmly cement themselves in their industry and ensure they are competitive for years to come need to make sure they are fully prepared by looking to not only their current, but also future needs.”

The Department for Business Innovation and Skills conducted the survey last year as part of their research on the whole economic sector. Highlighting just how important SMEs are to the country’s economy, the survey found that their combined annual turnover was £1.8 trillion, which in turn, accounted for 47% of all private sector turnover in the UK.

The survey also stressed the importance of not generalising SMEs into one or two sectors. Noting that wholesale and retail trade and repair accounted for 15% of all SME employment, and almost a third of SME turnover was spread across construction (10%), manufacturing (10%) and professional, scientific and technical (10%), SMEs definitely don’t fit into a ‘one size fits all’ category.

With a wide range of great quality pallet trucks, drum loaders, fork accessories, lift platforms and so much more, Midland Pallet Trucks is a one stop shop for all business’ needs – whatever their size.
