2015 in Review

Architecture Round Up

A great entranceway made by Rob O'Keefe during 2015

Architecture Round Up

A great Door to fill the gap, Rob O'Keefe

2015 has been a series of strong sales months and significant growth for us at Timspec. It seems this is true across all the industries supplying to the building and construction industries.  During the year we have had repeated record sales months. The strong sales are something special after 24 years. We did get a few welcome interruptions like the Rugby World Cup... Yay we won..

Architecture Round Up

The prospects for 2016 seem to be for more of the same and maybe even better times. The key driver is strong building activity of course. In our Building Round Up we show the consent data from Department of Statistics and how big the changes are. The scary thing is that we lack the resources in terms of qualified trades people and supply chain capacity to cope well with the growth. For example how do we sell more Cedar when we struggle to get enough now? How do we build more houses when Builders are not well paid as an example the industry will not attract more people. I guess we could import cheap labour but that can lead to more problems than it solves.  We are excited about prospects for 2016 and think it will be a great year.

Oh yeah and we had to say NO to the Red Peak??

2015 saw a number of changes in staff and we said good bye to some good people but we have been fortunate enough to fins some great new people and look forward to being able to do better than ever in 2016.
/imagesdb/Issue/fc22ac2b-cecf-44f9-b3e8-35cf13c4a277.jpgAccoya has a big boost in production coming
Accsys Technologies recently announced a joint venture with Solway to boost production at the Arnheim production facility nearly doubling capacity by 2017. So a big boost to Accoya supply is coming.
2016 Prospects and Opportunities
All the data and prospects point towards 2016 being busy and even better than 2015. Our biggest hurdle is managing the imported inflation some being the falling NZ dollar

A few changes and additions all in Auckland.

Black Butt decking provides a non tropical choice to build decks and still use a class 1 durable hardwood.
/imagesdb/Issue/d75b42f9-772a-43f1-a11b-6719e30b728c.jpgSupply chains
Supply chains are groaning at demand for key items. The growth in demand after the GFC has been slow and has seen a large number of sawmills here in NZ and elsewhere close and go broke. This is leading to shortages in supply as the remaining suppliers struggle to cope.
/imagesdb/Issue/b5dc470d-607c-417f-8cf4-bd6d27a1af74.jpgBuilding Activity
Data we see coming through suggest continuing demand for building materials and weather boards as an example are flying out the door. So prospects for Building Supply merchants should be okay.
