Despite widespread construction and roofing industry materials shortages, PermaGroup is surviving the storm and continues to safeguard the future of the business through a unique approach.
PermaGroup, a leading supplier of specialist construction and roofing products, has implemented a three-pronged approach to the crisis from the very start, stepping outside the box to navigate the sector’s current challenges.
Adrian Buttress, PermaGroup’s dynamic and forward-thinking Managing Director said, “I’m proud of the way we have responded as a company to the stock shortages, which have been an issue since early 2020. We’ve taken decisive action to support our customers and stayed flexible to allow us to respond quickly to the changing circumstances.”
A three-pronged approach
The company’s approach involved bulk purchasing, rewarding client loyalty, and supporting the industry skills gap with CPD seminars to help upskill the workforce. New investment has been welcomed and as a result, PermaGroup has met and exceeded its KPIs, safeguarding the future of the business and supporting ambitious plans for growth.
Adrian added: “Recently, I made the decision to sell some of my shareholding to a private equity company and bring on new board members – something that had always been part of my plans when I became MD. Now was the perfect time to implement this, as it has allowed us to reset targets, adapt our strategy and prepare confidently for the coming years.”
James Wooster, director of Owner Venture Managers, the additional shareholder alongside Adrian, said: “PermaGroup is an innovative business and I’m eager to join the board to support its future success as it continues to grow from strength to strength to service more customers than ever before. Adrian’s remarkable leadership has seen it thrive, despite the challenges of the past couple of years, and it’s a journey I’m excited to be on.”
