What Advertising/Marketing is carried out?

There is a web site that is utilized, but the majority of the work comes from the large projects that the major contractors are awarded, and who in turn sub-contract this company to supply the ducting requirements.

What competition exists?

There are a few smaller suppliers, but these do not have the capacity to get involved in large developmenrt requirements, so they place smaller orders for smaller construction requirements.

Growth in the construction environment would require larger orders for the manufacturing of ducting products to be supplied. Marketing to other smaller suppliers of Air conditioning developments is an ongoing process of new business development.

Due to the growth in orders the business will require to be relocated into larger premises when the lease expires in 2020
