08 Oct, 15

Sales already up 20%, four times greater than the market average reports JT

Shower tray manufacturer JT has seen an increase in sales of 20%, which it reports is four times greater than the 2015 market average of 5%.

To meet this growing demand from UK and international customers, JT has financed a six-figure capital investment in its production site and extended its night shift, to further boost manufacturing capability.

It cites strong sales in its JT Fusion shower tray, as well as growth in the aqua cushion floor JT Softstone.

The company has signed a long-term deal to supply 1,450 apartments in the high-rise residential scheme at the 12-acre London City Island by EcoWorld Ballymore with its low profile JT Fusion tray.

Work on the development will start this year, with the complex expected to be complete in 2018.

Managing director at JT Paul Crossley said: “We are JT are enormously proud of our team’s achievements and our investment to extend our production capabilities to serve new contracts in the pipeline.”

Founded in 1988, JT manufactures 7,000 units a week and was the first company to launch low profile shower trays in the UK, which now accounts for more than 50% of its sales.
