Our factories maintain good stock levels and delivery lead times, merchants and distributors are turning to Crest to help them through these challenging times.
The construction material shortage remains challenging for building and construction businesses as demand outstrips supply. With little improvement in the availability of many key building materials, such as timber, bricks and roof tiles, and with suppliers’ delivery times increased sharply as the supply chain works hard to keep up.
Crest’s manufacturing partners have been actively increasing the supply to merchants, distributors and housebuilders to help remove the tremendous pressure they all face. We have adequate production capacity and the ability to manufacture more bricks and roof tiles to further help the supply shortage.
The Scottish Government’s new £30 million ‘Small Developers Scheme,’ which will form part of Help to Buy (Scotland), will increase growth in the small house building sector, according to the Federation of Master Builders (FMB).
Gordon Nelson, Director of FMB Scotland, said “Like the Scottish Government we want Help to Buy (Scotland) to stimulate sales of new homes across both urban and rural Scotland, thereby helping more people across the whole country to buy new homes. This is only achievable with the participation of smaller local building firms and we therefore welcome the move to ring-fence £30 million specifically for buyers who want a new property built by one of these companies.”
