THE NEW COMMUNITY

Founder and Tradesperson Garry Lewis:

“We all have a role to play if things are to CHANGE, so much can be achieved if we all come together”

now bringing merchants together?

As part of my plan MERCHANTS are the key to turning the UK’s Home Improvement Market around and I’m now reaching out to merchants/suppliers and asking for them to simply show their support for what I’m trying to achieve to change our industry.

The problems plaguing our industry

CONSUMER CONFIDENCE

Consumer confidence is at an all time low when looking for a tradesperson, which is having a devastating impact on the industry. This is backed up by the statistics below:

Cowboy builders cost the UK economy around £10 billion a year in lost revenue.

Rogue traders cost UK homeowners in excess of £2 billion a year in botched jobs.

HELP AND SUPPORT

The statistics below clearly show that things have got to change before it really is to late. Tradespeople do need more help and support and this is something that I’m currently working on.

The construction industry has the highest rate of suicides than any other profession.

The number of failures within the UK’s construction sector increased by 73% in 2018.

SMEs face £40 billion a year in unpaid invoices. Prompt payment is an ethical issue.

UK faces growing skilled tradespeople crisis as tradespeople are choosing other professions.

is this the merchants problem?

All of these statistics are gradually getting worse and in the end they can only have a negative impact on the merchants. We really do need to address these issues before it becomes too late.
