Deritend enjoys £1m sales boost

A UK provider of engineering solutions is celebrating a major birthday in style after announcing a £1m boost in sales and creating 11 new jobs.

Deritend Group, which looks after the repair and replacement of electric motors, pumps, gearboxes, electronic controls and induction equipment, is 121 years-old in 2019 and has marked the anniversary with a string of new contracts. Today, the company employs 110 people across four locations in the Black Country, Luton and Middlesbrough and, thanks to the clutch of recent wins, is on course to post £11m annual sales.
A fully equipped fabrication operation in Middlesbrough and a skilled team of engineers located strategically across the UK supports customers ranging from Severn Trent/Thames Water and JCB, to British Steel and Mondelez International, which owns Cadbury. Over £750,000 has been invested in new equipment, recruitment and upskilling its workforce over the past 12 months, with plans in place to relocate its Wolverhampton site to West Bromwich by the start of 2021.
