Bath manufacturer BC Designs has brought back all of its employees from furlough, as it is refocusing its growth plans.
The company, which remained operational during lockdown with a limited service, has now resumed its full operations to support UK demand and overseas sales.
Already present in European countries, BC Designs has received “several significant sales enquiries” from the Middle East.
The company is also currently developing a new collection of products aimed at the USA market.
Managing director at BC Designs Darren Allison said: “Lockdown presented us with a unique opportunity to revisit and refocus our business strategy.
“We have strong growth plans and one area which will allow us to achieve this is through increasing our presence and sales in the international arena.”
He continued: “The senior management has since taken the decision to invest heavily in key markets, including the Middle East and the USA, of which we have already started to see the benefits.
“Since June 1, we have already secured housing and hotel contracts in Ireland, with plans to continue to invest heavily in the country.
“However, this has only been possible by bringing back all our staff off furlough to ensure we have knowledgeable sales and customer service staff to meet demand both in the UK and abroad.”
Celebrating its 20th year of trading in 2020, BC Designs reported it has doubled its turnover of 2018.
