Ehrco has celebrated its 25th year in business by achieving an 18% rise in turnover.

During 2017, the Dudley-based company - under the leadership of new Director Bryan Leavesley - has extended its hose assembly production facilities to increase its manufacturing capacity, and expand its client base to pass the 600 mark.

Now Ehrco is planning to achieve similar growth in 2018, which would take its turnover to over £3 million.

In addition to the construction sector, Ehrco supplies hose assemblies for industries such as manufacturing and mining, as well as hydraulic hose and fittings for lifting and handling equipment. It is the UK distributor for a number of leading brands including Vitillo Group and Oleo Tecnica Flanges.

“Our silver anniversary year has marked the beginning of a new era for Ehrco," said Bryan. "We have had strong support for our growth plans from our loyal staff, some of whom have been with the company from the start, and they are very excited about the opportunities ahead.

“We will be further enhancing our Dudley premises and launching a number of new products as the company continues on the next chapter of its story.”
