EnviroBuild, a supplier of sustainable materials to the construction industry, sees growth with strong trading despite the national lockdown.
The business turned over £13 million in its last financial year and in quarter two of this year EnviroBuild reported a 45% increase in revenue on 2019’s figures and that increased even further in quarter three with a 51% rise in revenue via the retail sales division.
Their Galleon garden furniture range, which is produced using recycled plastics, also saw a massive 250% increase on 2019 sales.
EnviroBuild also brought on six new commercial projects during lockdown including Taylor Wimpey’s new homes development at Innsworth and CALA homes construction in Cheltenham.
James Brueton, Founder and Director of EnviroBuild, comments: “We’ve seen exciting revenue growth over Q3 and we believe this is due to the public turning towards more sustainable products.
“‘Thinking how sustainable is my project’ is becoming a more important deciding factor in our customers purchases”.
The national lockdown is reported to have cost the construction industry over £300m per day according to the Construction Index. Yet despite the difficult trading conditions, EnviroBuild grew its team during lockdown to cope with demand, employing six new members of staff – two in its sales team and a further four in the operations team.
