The Sovini Trade Supplies store in Aintree.

Record-breaking year for Sovini Trade Supplies

Published:  13 May, 2016

Independent builders’ merchant Sovini Trade Supplies (STS) has exceeded its financial targets in a record-breaking year for the business.

The Merseyside-based company turned over £5.9m in the last financial year, far surpassing its projected turnover of £5m.

The building supplies store – which has a warehouse in Aintree – almost doubled its anticipated annual profits from £215,000 to £500,000, proving how successful it has been since its inception in 2014.

Sovini Trade Supplies’ director Anita Harrison-Carroll said: “We have a great working culture at STS, our team is small but we have an extensive skill set, which has been the driving force behind our financial success.

“Every member of our team has contributed hugely to this fantastic achievement, and we aim to increase our turnover to £7.1m in 2016/17 as we win new business and develop existing relationships.

“We have a large array of customers across the North West including W Carroll Group, JC Construction and North Liverpool Construction, and this list will continue to grow as we move into the next financial year.”
