And we’re off to a fabulous start! According to trade supplier, Plumbfix, 2015 has kicked off positively for UK plumbers and other tradespeople, with nearly one in six claiming they are so busy they have more work than they can handle!
Further stats reveals that 78 per cent have enough work to keep them busy, while 59 per cent believe business will improve for them within the next 12 months. One third of those surveyed report that business is busier than expected, preparing more quotes compared to the same time last year!
And the positivity continues with some 53 per cent of respondents feeling optimistic about their business and the economy in general believing it is set for good things over the next 12 months.
Commenting on the research, Andrew Livingstone, ceo of Plumbfix, explained: “2015 has got off to a buoyant start for UK tradesmen, with many taking on more work year-on-year. This trend has also come through other measures such as the latest construction growth figures.”
It’s worth bearing in mind that to support a busy workforce, Plumbfix is set to open more than 50 new stores in the UK, helping businesses access what they want, when they want it.
