We have recently invested in the latest automated equipment for our production line following an increase in demand for our products.
Sales of our air filtration systems have gone up significantly since the pandemic started and we have purchased the new kit for an undisclosed figure with support from Lloyds Bank.
15.7% increase in demand
Graham Bentley, our Chairman, says: “We have seen a 15.7% increase in demand for our air filters and air filtration systems since the start of the pandemic, particularly from firms in the commercial, retail and office environments and hospitality sectors, wanting to implement new air filters that help increase air hygiene and cut operating costs.
“Installing new air filters and managing filter systems can reduce businesses energy costs by up to 80% and under industry and professional guidelines, improved general filtration to a minimum level of 80% at ePM1 (1 micron particle sizes).
“We are seeing increasing demand of domestic air filters from consumers who previously relied on overseas production cycles.
“Seeking methods to streamline production and increase operational efficiency will help to shield our customers from further supply chain issues that could potentially impact their strategic ambitions.
“We’ve always maintained our production facility in the UK and resisted the temptation to offshore our operations over the last 50 years. The sector knowledge and support we have received from Lloyds Bank in the form of an undisclosed fee, has been invaluable. It’s allowed us to move forward with our ambitious growth plans and make adaptations to our business that will help us remain resilient.”
Funding and support from Lloyds Banking Group
Lloyds Banking Group is a leading UK-based financial services group providing a wide range of banking and financial services, focused on personal and commercial customers. It helps businesses across the UK, giving them the funding and support they need to grow both at home and abroad.
Will Kite, Relationship Director at Lloyds Bank, said: “Global supply chain bottlenecks and rising inflation have shaken the industry with our latest Business Barometer survey in July reporting the manufacturing sector’s economic confidence fell by 12 points to 20%. This lowering confidence shows businesses must be proactive to help protect themselves from the current inflationary challenges.
“It’s been brilliant to work with Jasun Envirocare and help them increase their specialist production capacity and provide a more extensive service to their customers. We hope other manufacturers take inspiration from their successes, so we can bring more home-grown business back to Britain.”
