Norcros Adhesives continues to achieve growth in sales and employment. It now also has its sights set on exciting overseas growth.
The company has invested recently in a number of areas at its factory, including manufacturing technology, management controls and staff facilities. This has enabled the company to increase its manufacturing capacity by 150 per cent in the past year. The company’s investment programme has led to the introduction of a number of class-beating new products in its core tile adhesives and grouts business.
The success of these recent new products has also enabled the company to increase its Tunstall-based workforce. It has taken on three new recruits in the past few months – two in finance and one additional technical advisor. The company continues to employ apprentices and currently has two working within the business.
Now Norcros Adhesives is setting its sights on its Middle East market, where it is expanding its sales team in order to serve this growing region better. It has also recruited a new financial controller, on account of the number of construction projects in the area that it is now supplying.
“I am happy to report that continuing success at home and growth within the business is now being reflected in increased international business as well,” says Richard Wallis, managing director.
