House Building Boost Will Help Suppliers as Well as Construction Companies

Government Pledge to Boost Housing Industry Will Create Opportunities Throughout Building Sector

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2011) - A £400m fund has been promised by the government for house building to construct new homes, which will give a boost not just to construction companies but also construction workers and suppliers of materials and building gear such as lifting equipment and vehicles.

The construction of 200,000 new homes is planned between now and 2015 to create affordable and sustainable housing that will help people get onto the housing ladder.

This is great news for construction companies which have been struggling through the recession, and employees of the industry who have been subjected to lay-offs or reduced hours due to cost savings.

It is also great news for all the suppliers in the construction chain. In uncertain economic times, the ability to hire quality equipment quickly and cost-effectively is crucial to enabling movement in the industry.

Lifting Gear UK are industry specialists who provide high quality lifting equipment. They are urging construction companies to ensure that they only hire or purchase equipment from quality providers who have thorough processes for checking products prior to delivery. Builders are able to get both quality equipment and fast, cost-effective service from large, expert companies like LGUK.

Customers are able to order gear through LGUK's website, which is set up to accept both purchases and orders to hire equipment and give transparent pricing. The company's simple ordering process and their quick delivery promises enable construction companies to access crucial equipment such as floor cranes and lifting slings easily and with confidence.

Andy Stafford, Commercial Director of Lifting Gear UK, says; "Any boost to the construction industry is positive. Experienced workers and quality equipment are vital to ensuring high standards within the industry. At Lifting Gear UK we are proud that our expertise within the sector allows us to offer excellent service and equipment, and provide a fast and cost-effective solution to the sometimes troubled construction industry."

With the country's economic future still uncertain, a boost to the construction industry and housing market is a welcome move that will help many people. Quality suppliers who offer expertise and efficiency will play a role in helping construction companies, and the new builds should help first time buyers make that all important first step onto the ladder.
