Bonding the UK into Growth

The Building and Construction Market

The UK has a housing shortage. Although we need to build 240,000 new homes a year, each year we build approximately 100,000 fewer homes than this. In accordance with the Confederation of British Industry, or CBI, For the last 14 years only 4 years have managed to produce over 200,000 homes costing British consumers over £4 Billion from above-inflation charges every year. whilst in 2010, fewer houses were built than in any year since the Second World War.

On the plus side according to the CPA ( Construction Products Association ) the UK has experienced a 3.4% market growth in 2014 and foresee a further 5.2% in 2015 with further progress forecast for 2016 and 2017, An exciting time ahead for the construction industry. This will decrease the above inflation charge while also have an effect on property prices within the UK.

As UK Industrial Tapes Ltd  produce and supply a range of Adhesive Tapes which are vital for the Building and Construction market this market sector becomes very integral to us and meeting their demanding application needs is a must.

We are constantly looking at ways to improve our Adhesive Tapes and Adhesive Technology to expand and enhance our product range. By doing this we hope to add value to this market and assist our customers within their applications and future needs.

In June 2014 We exhibited at Fit Show and this was hugely successful for business relations with  the Window and Door Market in general. Due to this we have already signed up for The Build Show in October 2015 which is expected to be another successful event.

Take a look at our latest addition to our Glass, Glazing and Construction Brochure,  you will see the wide range of Adhesive Tapes we offer for the expansive range of applications.  We have a number of products which are approved to certain standards, especially within the manufacturing off Windows and  Door’s with Data sheets available at request.
