By comparison with timber – which has a reported waiting time of two months according to recent research from the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) and is commonly used for fencing projects – Anderton Concrete, part of Ibstock plc, can deliver to customers within 2-3 days from ordering.
This allows Anderton to provide its customers with continuity of supply so they can take advantage of the sales opportunities which come their way. This will place them in a competitive position as the traditional sales season looks set to be extended thanks to the recent good weather.
Shaun Forrester, Sales Director at Anderton Concrete, comments: “It is well known that there are longer waiting times for popular building products. We are bucking this trend and are continuing to deliver to our customers within 2-3 days of their order being placed. We are able to achieve this thanks to our strategic growth plan. Whilst we continue to invest in our production facilities, we only take on new customers when we are satisfied we have the capacity to meet their requirements, from this we can ensure our customers have continuity of supply and know that their next delivery is only a few days away as promised.
“We are expecting a strong third quarter for sales and with this in mind we are advising our customers to plan ahead to ensure orders and deliveries are met efficiently. We have a proven track record of supplying precast concrete products to the construction industry, and our customers know they can reply us to give them the products they need, when they need them.”
