As leading thinktanks estimate that UK growth will start to pick up and increase in 2014, Pallet Trucks UK are urging all businesses not to rest on their laurels, and to take advantage of the growth that could soon be coming their way.
The NIESR (National Institute of Economic and Social Research) has forecast that growth will end 2013 at 1.4% and will quick to 2% in 2014; both of these forecasts are up by 0.2% even in the last three months, strengthening claims that the recovery from the recession is truly beginning. Leading providers of pallet trucks and manual handling equipment to businesses across the country, Pallet Trucks UK supply the tools and apparatus that many businesses need in order to grasp this opportunity with both hands, and they are encouraging all industries to prepare for the growth that will soon occur.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Pallet Trucks UK, which boasts an extensive catalogue of pallet trucks, manual stackers, aerial work platforms and semi-electric lift tables, says, "Finally the UK is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with regards to the recession that has been the scourge of so many businesses. It is now up to the businesses of the UK, across all industries, whether it is retail or manufacturing, to ensure that this expected growth does not pass them by. Making the necessary investments now, ready for when business continues to pick up in the next few years, will stand a business in good stead for what will hopefully be a fruitful future."
Businesses can prepare for growth in a number of ways. Whether they take on further staff, expand their premises, extend their marketing campaigns or invest in brand new equipment, all of these actions will help to ensure a business will be able to deal with growth and added demand when it comes. As pallet trucks are often considered the lifeblood of many industries, doing all of the fetching and carrying that the manufacturing, logistics, warehousing, storage and distribution industries need, these are often the first to be upgraded when an economic bright spot appears on the horizon.
The hand pallet truck is versatile, high-quality, durable and easy to use. It requires no formal qualification to operate, it can assist everyone in the working environment and it helps to ensure that everything in the workplace ticks over smoothly, like a well-oiled machine. Transporting goods from A to B is one of the most important aspects to many businesses, so if they want to be sure that this economic growth will benefit them, businesses must be prepared to upgrade their pallet trucks and be ready to transport higher, heavier volumes of goods as Britain recovers.
Pallet Trucks UK is warning businesses to stock up on the right equipment, ensure they have appropriate staff levels and make the necessary expansions to their premises if needed, in order to reap the rewards that the healthier economy will hopefully bring to the UK.
