Post-Election Confidence Could See Construction Industry Surge - Pallet Trucks UK Encourages Businesses to Be Prepared

The Tories are back in power and in the wake of the party’s General Election triumph, the UK is expecting a surge in construction industry growth. Pallet Trucks UK is encouraging businesses to prepare for the boom by stocking up on advanced new equipment engineered to boost efficiency, streamline operations and keep up with increased demand.

In a recent survey published by Construction News, Brits demonstrated increased confidence in the post-election performance of the construction industry. When asked “How confident are you in sales growth over the next six months?” almost 60% of respondents cited ‘very confident’ or ‘fairly confident’ as their answers. Just 12% were ‘very unconfident’ while 18% were ‘fairly unconfident’ in impending growth. The newfound confidence and positivity is largely due to the fact that throughout the campaign, the Conservative Party was continually hailed as the faction that best understood the needs of the construction industry. This conviction was continually demonstrated in pre-election polls, and continues to endure in post-election victory.

Eddie Tuttle, Senior Policy & Public Affairs Manager at the Chartered Institute Of Building explains, “By establishing a close dialogue with industry professionals, this Conservative-led government has the potential to raise the profile of construction and alter the public persona of a career in construction.”

With industry growth anticipated by the majority of respondents, Pallet Trucks UK is urging businesses to be prepared for the surge in sales and profits. According to the leading supplier of premium quality pallet trucks and manual handling equipment, reliability, functionality and value for money should be considered of key importance. Online, the company stocks a wide range of premium quality equipment to suit a range of different applications. Customers can choose from 18 categories of pallet trucks, as well as an extensive selection of stackers, lift tables, sack trucks, forklift extensions, accessories, platform lifts, moving skates and drum loaders.

Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, says “The future is looking bright for the construction industry, particularly in the wake of an electoral win from a party that places heavy emphasis on creating jobs and boosting the economy through housing and infrastructure projects. To prepare for the influx of contracts we’re encouraging all construction businesses to arm their enterprises with state-of-the-art manual handling equipment that gets jobs done faster, safer and more cost effectively.”

All products are stocked in the West Midlands distribution depot, with nationwide delivery available to mainland UK addresses. The British based warehouse means businesses wanting to stock up on new equipment enjoy fast despatch times and speedy delivery, generally within 24 hours.

From small independent contractors to multi-national corporations, Pallet Trucks UK is the go-to supplier for businesses wanting to stock up on top quality manual handling equipment, before the boom hits.
