Weathering the storm of COVID-19 and the disruption of the UK’s impending exit from the European Union, AUMA Actuators Limited, the UK trading business of AUMA Group, reports its 2020 sales performance is on budget, with profit performing above target.
AUMA Actuators Limited supplies electric actuators, drives and controls to the water and wastewater sector, oil and gas, energy and processing industries. Performance has been boosted by the company’s preparedness for Brexit, with increased inventory in place prior to the onset of this year’s global pandemic.
Paul Hopkins is Managing Director, AUMA Actuators Limited. He says: “I’m delighted to share these extremely positive results with our valued partners and employees. We are all aware, 2020 has been no ordinary year for business. As a subsidiary of AUMA Group, our unique sole supplier status has enabled us to deliver products and spares with reduced lead times, at a moment when global supply chains have been severely disrupted.
“Our excellent performance is the combination of the focus and application of our dedicated team, along with an excellent range of innovative solutions, plus increased demand from customers seeking responsive service and supply. We are an extremely resilient operator, backed by a global parent business, a simplified supply chain and excellent planning.”
On the subject of Brexit, Paul Hopkins continues: “With a number of vaccines now in circulation, we hope that trading in the UK will soon begin to normalise. The UK’s exit from the EU clearly presents a number of challenges, for which we are well prepared. Conversations with our parent company have provided huge reassurance in terms of a seamless transition. We are, and continue to be, here working for our customers, regardless of whatever the economy throws our way.”
AUMA Actuators Limited assembles and supplies its range of actuator solutions from its warehouse and distribution centre in Clevedon, just south of Bristol and close to the M5 for fast, nationwide delivery.
