Springfarm Architectural Mouldings Ltd. (SAM) is on track to reach ambitious growth target plans which will see the company double turnover by 2020.
The business, which has sites in Antrim and Lincolnshire, is a leading UK manufacturer of interior MDF mouldings including skirting and architrave, as well as façade and roofline products. It also boasts one of the most advanced production facilities in Europe.
SAM is currently set to complete its £5 million investment programme as part of its growth strategy plans, which has so far included an integration of technology and production systems, upgrading machinery, increasing the SAM stock offer, expanding the external sales team by another two employees and offering sector leading marketing support across both digital and traditional platforms, tailored to individual account needs and market demands.
Sam McCrea MBE, chief executive officer of SAM, said: “We have made substantial investments across several key areas including people, equipment and the service we offer to our customers to prepare for future growth and the long-term success of the company. We have successfully integrated two sites and improved our customer offering and we believe this has set a good foundation for the business for the future.”
Gerard Wilson, sales director of SAM, added: “The past two years have been an exciting time for our business. We have always worked hard to provide a market leading service, but as always you have to listen to the market and react accordingly. We want to stay ahead of our competition and maintain our USPs.
“This investment has allowed us to further improve production efficiencies by increasing capacity, shortening lead times and delivering on time, in full, while maintaining our high standards of quality. The improvements to the sales and marketing functions mean we can offer leading industry expertise and an excellent account management service, as well as strengthening relationships with customers by supporting them to develop and grow their sales of the SAM product brands.”
SAM currently employs 200 people.
