ITSA members end a challenging year on an incredibly positive note.


2021 has been another exceptionally challenging year for ITSA members, with the pandemic continuing to affect all walks of life, our members have continued to adapt in order to maintain their businesses and protect their staff.

In many ways, regardless of how the pandemic develops further, it is unlikely our members will revert to the “old way” of conducting business for the foreseeable future if at all.

What the last 2 years have show is that we can adapt and be innovative about conducting business and continue to be successful.

We are now heading to the end of 2021 and despite everything ITSA members have enjoyed a bumper year with revenues highly likely to be back at 2019 levels, or just above, and even more impressive are the very strong forward order books. This has been achieved against a backdrop of not just COVID but also increasing costs in all areas including, incoming materials, energy and utilities, transportation, employment etc. We have seen the recent reports that inflation is running at 5% or more and this does not look like stalling without some further intervention from the Bank of England.

None of the above success could have been achieved without the support of our members loyal customers, suppliers, partners, and employees and on behalf of ITSA we would like to thank everyone for their loyalty and support in 2021 and look forward to continuing to collaborate with you in 2022 and beyond.

ITSA is incredibly positive about the year ahead and would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2022.
