Access Control and Street furniture site grows as more buyers trade directly
No Brochures, No Sales people on the road, Paperless office, Simple easy to use web site with prices and bulk discounts, has made Barriers Direct first choice for Street Furniture, Access control and Impact Protection Products with Construction Companies and Local Authorities .

Contractors last year accounted for 9% of our business, this has now grown within the last year to over 17%. Said Janine Carhart, Barriers Direct Managing Director.

Low overheads, strong cost base and second to none prices from our manufacturers and suppliers have put us on the map.

We concentrate completely on customer service, easy to use web site, all products priced up and ready to go, and speedy free delivery, and it seems to be working.

In a year when Construction companies were under enormous pressure to save on costs, Local Authorities set to make procurement savings, we seem to have hit the right note. Easy ways to pay and 30 day accounts for Public sector all on line.

In 2008 top 100 construction firms grow by 16% and increased their profits by 12%, but with profit growth lower than turnover, growth margins are on the slide - source Contract Journal.

Barriers Direct prices are up to 30% cheaper than the larger more traditional Catalogue companies. Savings passed direct to customers.

We are gearing up for even more growth in 2010 more products on the web site, prices down and many exclusives on our most popular products.
