For some of us, the past two years as we battled COVID- 19, has been a roller coaster ride and at times we thought about ‘what happens next’? It’s offered us time to reflect, think about a better future and how we could make the most of it.
Karl Sands did just that. After stepping down from his senior role within a construction safety services company, he decided to start his own business – Salt Town Contractors, specialising in roofing and cladding nationwide.
Together with his wife Kim who has taken up the role as Finance Director, the company has firm foundations based on over 16 years industry experience together with resilience to make the business a success even during difficult times. In fact, the company is already working with several UK wide blue-chip customers with plans for real growth this year and for many years to come.
The continued aftermath of the pandemic is still affecting the construction industry, with materials shortages causing project delays, but the team at Salt Town Constructors remain positive as the business enters its third year of trading.
Through building strong customer relationships and offering the best products and service, Salt Town Contractors continue to have a busy order book and a business that has flourished against adversity. Karl is grateful for the opportunity to have his own business and see it go from strength to strength:
“The pandemic has not been kind to everyone, and it has been a trying time for us all. We had to remain positive and continue providing the quality work that our customers expect. We have been so grateful for all the projects we have been a part of, and value those who supported us from the start. Now that things are getting back to ‘normal’ I am optimistic about our future and can only hope that my colleagues within the construction industry see the same.”
Alongside daily operations, Salt Town Contractors became a founding member of Donatable, a social enterprise focusing on giving back to your community and improving corporate social responsibility. Thanks to the organisation, the Salt Town Contractors team have been able to help and support their local community.
