Develon Machinery Contributes to the Construction Industry

Develon machinery plays an integral part in the growth and success of the UK construction industry

Construction is a very diverse industry that includes activities ranging from mining, quarrying and forestry to the construction of infrastructure and buildings, the manufacture and supply of products, as well as maintenance, operation and disposal. A key component in the construction industry is the machinery that keeps it moving. Develon machinery provides a key role, supplying a range of machinery such as large tracked and wheeled excavators, mini diggers, wheel loaders and dump trucks to name a few.

Construction output in the UK is worth more than £110 billion per annum and contributes 7% of GDP. Approximately a quarter of construction output is public sector and three-quarters is private sector. There are three main sectors:

  • Commercial and social (approximately 45%).
  • Residential (approximately 40%).
  • Infrastructure (approximately 15%).

The construction industry accounts for approximately 3 million jobs, 10% of total UK employment and includes both manufacturing and services. According to the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, the industry is made up as follows:

  • Contracting, 2,030,000 jobs, 234,000 businesses.
  • Services, 580,000 jobs, 30,000 businesses.
