Happy New Year 2014
The team at JP Concrete would like to wish all customers a very prosperous new year, and we hope you enjoyed a relaxing Christmas break. Our time off has gone by in a flash but we’re certainly glad to be back as 2014 is already shaping up to be a great year!
The Construction Industry
The new year has confirmed more encouraging news from the construction industry. As we reported in late 2013, the industry has been growing at its fastest rate in more than six years. Various initiatives have prompted increases in house-building and commercial projects.
Although the figures slowed down a little during December, forecasters remain very optimistic about a continuation in growth. We’re enjoying the fact that we’re not alone in thinking 2014 will be a great year for our industry. And as we all know, an upturn in the construction industry can have a hugely positive knock-on effect for other industries.
More jobs will become available, our housing market will continue to strengthen and, perhaps most importantly, general optimism will soar. So let’s hope this positive growth keeps on trucking!
New year, new gear
We’re also excited to bring our newest product to market this year. We’re now manufacturing our new, taller 1500mm concrete barrier. Standing at 1020mm high, it’s taller than our previous barriers (though these are still available) and is available to purchase. Or you can take advantage of our barrier hire facility.
We’ve also launched our new concrete ballast blocks which weigh one tonne each and are 750mm cubed. You can purchase the ballast blocks or hire them for the duration of your project: whichever’s more cost-effective for you. Finally, we’re currently admiring our brand new moulds for freestanding units. The introduction of these additional moulds has boosted our output and means we can produce up to 14 units in a single day.
Seamless customer management
We’re also working hard to keep our customers happy and have introduced a new customer relationship management (CRM) system. This helps us to keep in touch with our growing customer base and helps all orders run as smoothly as possible.
So whether you’re an existing customer or you’ve just discovered JP Concrete, you can be sure that your experience will be positive and that you’ll be kept up-to-date with our latest news and offers if you so desire.
All of the above means that we’re pretty excited about the year ahead and we hope it’s looking just as promising for all of our customers. If you have any questions about our precast concrete products or just want to have a chat about how we could assist on your project, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
