The company is now fulfilling orders for new customers in varying sectors, including the construction, industrial, storage & racking and agricultural markets.

Fellow Director and co-owner Wayne Fletcher further discussed the business performance in detail. “MCRS has seen turnover increase 3 fold under the latest regime since July 2016. January was a record month with February looking equally strong.”

Wayne continued “We are introducing more regular monthly turnover customers to help us to stabilise the business and to compliment the ‘project based clients’ of the historical order book. The feedback from the new customers so far is positive and whilst quality and service are a given these days, the new (and existing clients) have been suitably impressed by the close supplier/customer communication, improved lead times and competitive pricing structures.

Wayne added “Our Fabrication Division has just completed an order for a large multinational environmental engineering company and we are currently quoting on our first export work.

We would like to acknowledge the support received from the loyal existing long term customer base and welcome our new customers that have joined us. We would also like to thank our long term suppliers and growth fund partners who are also helping to ensure we achieve long term success for the company” said Wayne.

    Hi both,
    It sounds like the plan that you put in place back in July 2016 had a solid foundation, on which you have grown considerably during the difficult first 6 monthly period.
    Your joint capabilities coupled with a dedicated workforce have put you in a strong position to secure new customers through a confident and determined approach, thus providing a commercially viable solution at all levels.
    I look forward to reading your next review to see the next stages of your growth.
