Conveyor manufacturer Sovex on course for “record breaking” growth

CONVEYOR manufacturer Sovex is gearing up for a record breaking year of growth in 2014 -with contracts worth £7m already on the order book.


The Wirral-based company, which specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of conveyor systems, is on track for another double digit increase in turnover over the next 12 months. This will take revenues to c£25M.

Longstanding customer UK Mail has kick-started that growth with a multimillion pound order placed at the start of the year.

During 2014, Sovex will be undergoing an IT infrastructure upgrade, making several internal promotions and hiring additional staff to meet the demands of the expanding business.

Newly appointed business development manager Rachel Price will be targeting the retail sector where Sovex already has customers, including TK Maxx.

Managing director Michele Dematteis said: “The year 2014 has all the ingredients to be Sovex’s best year in business. We have several very large orders on the horizon of which UK Mail is one. “

“We are heading into the new year with our sights set on expanding into the retail sector, lots of orders and a determination to succeed.”

Sovex has worked with UK Mail since 2006 and currently holds the servicing contract for its parcel handling equipment on all its sites.

The order, worth £2.36m, is for telescopic vehicle loaders, 8 of which are the Sovex Bendy Boom which is unique, providing access not only to standard trailers but access to vans below dock height.

The order calls for equipment which is a variation to the standard equipment in order to meet UK Mail operational needs. The new equipment will allow UK Mail to integrate seamlessly their new Crisplant cross belt sorter which handles in the region of 24,000 parcels per hour.

Sovex’s products are widely used within the parcel industry and have been developed to save companies time and money by enabling vehicles of all sizes – from Transit vans to double decker trailers, standard trailers and containers – to be loaded and unloaded safely and quickly.

Once the product is unloaded Sovex offers full conveyor systems to assist with sorting and transporting the items.
