Despite uncertain times prevailing in the industry, Boston sales this year have already far exceeded all previous levels. Claiming to lead the field in Automated Test Lane installations, this has proved to be a major factor in Boston’s continued growth with more than 40 bays always in progress through design and supply.
Managing Director Ray Calcutt commented on the company’s healthy position which has been sustained in a difficult climate “2008 has seen heavy demand for Boston ATL and OPT lanes which we relate to the popularity of our play detectors that have unique features. Added to this is of course has been the demand for new specification smokemeters which are now mandatory for MoT tests. Our range has been expanded and there are innovative new products scheduled for the coming months. The euro exchange rate has been unhelpful but this is affecting all major suppliers although our UK production has in fact gained from this. We expect our natural growth to overcome the effects of recession, and the vehicle maintenance and repairs industry should hold its own with new car sales in decline, and the need to service older stock”
