Displaysense Freeze Prices To Aid Cash Strapped Councils
on: April 06, 2010, 9:11 pm
Displaysense has announced it is to freeze prices in an effort
to assist public bodies such as councils in the face of budget cuts
following the recession..
With the UK economy still teetering on the cliff edge of economic recovery, everyone
from small businesses to Alistair Darling are set for a new decade of belt
tightening in order to reduce the countries debts. With more than 250,000 people
currently employed in the public sector, this area is set to be hit hardest as
budgets are slashed and the prospect of major job losses seem inevitable.
In order to help prevent future job losses, Displaysense, a leading supplier of
display cabinets and cake stands to retailers and public bodies in the UK, has vowed to freeze the prices of its
most popular ranges over the next couple of months.
The company, which has experienced price increases from their suppliers and who are
also suffering from the ever escalating prices of fuel, has promised to absorb all
of these costs until the start of June. As public sector bodies are set to start a
new financial year in April, procurement managers are being encouraged to make the
most of this price freeze and purchase their business card holders
and display cases now.
With spending cuts being estimated between 5% and 20% from council to council, not
only will those currently employment by a public sector body suffer, but also the
general public who depend on grants or support from the government to get by.
Steve Whittle the marketing manager at Displaysense commented: "Throughout the 30
year history at Displaysense, we have always had a long standing relationship with
councils. We appreciate their business and are trying to do what we can to ease
their short term pressures and their long term concerns."
According to a recent survey carried out by BBC English regions, some councils may
experience up to 1000 job losses each, which will only push the level of
unemployment back up and impact on the stability of the economies recovery.
Although the price freeze at Displaysense might not be the answer to the public
sectors prayers, it is hoped that other suppliers will follow suit and play their
part in keeping the countries unemployment level down and keeping the UK economy up.
