“I’m pleased to say that the business is well-positioned to expand and move forward thanks to the effort of all of our employees during this tough period.

As for what the future holds, McCauley says to expect it to continue to innovate and develop with the customer being front and centre.
"I think everyone is currently in the same situation post-Covid, and we are looking for a real strong return for business, and we are already showing strong sign of return in a lot of those areas," McCauley continues.
"We are one of the few distributors that is vertically integrated, with a factory based in England, and we are heavily invested in continuing to develop new products and technologies to bring into the market."
