Record Results for Flooring Firm
A United Kingdom flooring firm based near Radcliffe is currently experiencing record results as a consequence of increasing its export business. James Halstead has broken record ground for growth during the last six months of last year, achieving no less than nine percent rise in profits (prior to tax, at least) during the months of July through to December 2010. The flooring firm, which produces numerous types of flooring including wood flooring ideal for wood floor repairs, found itself experiencing sales of more than a hundred million UK pounds for the first time during an interim period, netting just over a hundred and six million, a rise of no less than fifteen percent in total.
The success of the company is largely down to its export business, with James Halstead last year shipping flooring off hospitals in both Chicago and Libya as well as to South African Railways. Whilst sales in their native Britain increased as well, by around three and a half percent, it was nothing compared with their increase in sales in countries such as Australia, Germany and North America. There it grew by as much as twenty three percent.
“Localised issues have given us problems but overall the global marketplace is solid and we continue at the forefront of commercial flooring specifications on new builds and in refurbishments,” the company says. “Our solid foundation in healthcare and education is renowned but our products are far more widely installed and our success in the sports sector continues.”
