Record Month for Arkoni
Posted 10th February 2017
Arkoni secured over £3.0 million of contracts in January representing a significant 52% increase on June 2016, its previous best month.
Founded in 1991, Arkoni supplies the construction industry with fire-rated glazing systems, a wide selection of standard and bespoke steel glazing and architectural metalwork.
Arkoni founder and MD Mark Prentice commented: “This is the busiest start to a year we’ve had since our formation and augers well in what could be a year of uncertainty with Brexit negotiations on the horizon.
“The poor exchange rate means that we will be forced to put prices up by 10% but with a solid pipeline of new work on projects across the UK we are well placed to navigate through choppy waters.
“Over the last few years we’ve grown rapidly. The increase in turnover however was slight last year due to strategic investment in people, processes and production and that consolidation has helped to put us on track for what should be a record year.
“The bulk of the increase in sales is coming from Arkoni’s ability to work with architects and specialist main contractors, to develop bespoke glazed solutions, within the construction industry, both fire rated and thermally broken,” added Mark.
Arkoni currently employs 60 at its workshops on Armytage Road in Brighouse and recorded a £6.5 million turnover in 2015-16.
