Christeyns announces record turnover in UK

Chemicals manufacturer Christeyns recently announced that overall UK group turnover last year exceeded £60million for the first time in the company’s history. From January to December 2018, all divisions recorded positive turnover growth, with one division growing by 17%.

At the same time the 2019 targets for the business – for both Christeyns UK and its parent company Christeyns N.V. – were presented and key issues – such as industry trends, the impact of Brexit as well as training, marketing and business development – were discussed.  With its continued focus on the environment and the challenges of producing innovative solutions, the company is constantly seeking to provide specialised chemicals and systems that offer optimum results whilst also reducing operational costs.

The statements were made at a conference for over 100 employees from across the UK and Ireland representing its key business units in laundry, food hygiene, specialist construction chemicals and professional hygiene. Nick Garthwaite, managing director Christeyns UK, led the opening address and update from a UK perspective.  Alain Bostoen, CEO of Christeyns Group, provided the global viewpoint. They closed the event with a summary of the 2019 plans, which include ambitious organic growth as well as further acquisitions.
