The company's strategy is to develop our position as a leading provider of specialised furnace and industrial services, with a global reach, and to deliver long-term, sustainable growth through the continued expansion of our products and services.

Dickinson Group of Companies' strategy is underpinned by:

  • Intentionally reviewing alternative industries and complementary product and service offerings.
  • The development and introduction of new and innovative technologies and solutions.
  • Strengthening and consolidating our position in existing markets through focused organic growth.
  • Expanding into new markets to enhance operational efficiencies, whilst maintaining a dedicated focus on quality and safety.

The expansion is achieved through the company’s strong client relationships, in-house design, manufacturing and maintenance capabilities, and a commitment to training and development – which allows the Group to exploit its core knowledge and experience.
