ERJ staff report (BC)
Christchurch, UK – A Hampshire-based rubber firm has moved headquarters after expanding. Delta Rubber Limited, previously based in New Milton, has relocated to Christchurch, Dorset, reports Rory McKeown for the Southern Daily Echo.
The move will allow the firm, which makes a variety of products from rubber extrusions and seals to electrical safety matting, to treble its capacity.
The turnover for the firm’s first year (2007) was £80 000, (€93 000) which was risen steadily with roughly 30 per cent per year growth over the past three years.
Turnover in 2012 topped £550 000 (€640 000), and 20 per cent growth is expected this year.
Co-director Jon Fisher is reported as saying: “It’s hard to find your place in the market when you’re competing against well established, national businesses.
“It’s been a long process but we’ve always had a plan that we knew would work. In the last few years everything began to fall into place and we’re continually expanding our workforce to keep pace. We’ve just outgrown our New Milton premises and are intent on growing further, hence we are relocating to our new Christchurch facility.
