- Comments Off on Tradesmen Are Busier Than Expected
- Categories: Fixings
Over 40% of UK tradesmen are busier than expected and nearly 20% face more work than they can handle! Qualified electrical contractors are among the UK tradesmen whose diaries are getting packed, with many expecting to get even busier during the next year.
It seems that this expectation is well founded, as nearly 40% of tradesmen are providing more quotes that this time last year. The vast majority of contractors are currently working on projects, with more work scheduled.
Not only does this show that tradesmen are progressively more confident about their own workload, but it also indicates how they feel about the general economy, with nearly 60% optimistic that it will continue to improve over the next year.
At Armafix, we are definitely experiencing the buzz of this growing economy, with August and September sales 50% up on last year!
