Saracen Interiors has announced it is on track to demonstrate continued growth in the coming year, after revealing an increase of almost 30 percent on its forward order book compared to this time last year.
In the past 12 months, Saracen has seen its turnover climb 10 percent, despite external factors, such as Brexit, causing most businesses to exercise caution and down-scale plans in the face of uncertainty.
The company cites key sales appointments and the expansion of its business throughout the North and North West of England as important factors in its growth. Saracen has also benefited greatly from repeat business, with 80 percent of projects stemming from well-established relationships within the industry.
Commenting on the company’s success, joint managing director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page, has said:
“We were in a very strong position at the start of last year and we managed to build on that enough to carry us through the impact of the uncertainty many companies felt in the Summer months, post-Brexit. Our strategy to expand in the North has been timely and has served us well and we look forward to some key announcements regarding work in Yorkshire and Scotland in the coming months.”
In 2016, Saracen was shortlisted for two awards: for its work for global network services provider Tata Communications, and for its facilities management division, Saracen Facilities, which has enjoyed a 20 percent increase in turnover during the past year.
A strong market presence and a steady stream of recommends has allowed business to soar for the division, which provides innovative and environmentally sound solutions.
Saracen Facilities sits alongside Saracen Small Works and Saracen Move Management to complement Saracen Interiors, which handles larger fit out projects. The company’s clients are able to benefit from access to all of the four divisions, with a set of seamless service options designed to anticipate all manner and scale of requirements.
