80th Anniversary Book Published
80 Years of the Wernick Group – A Continuing Story of Growth and Success
This is the title of a new book which has been produced as part of our 80th Anniversary Celebrations. The book tells the story about the arrival of Samuel Wernick, to Britain in 1902 at the tender age of 13, the creation of Wernick in 1934 and its subsequent history up to 2014. It is the story of a family who from very humble beginnings have gone on to create the oldest and one of the largest providers of portable accommodation in the UK.
The story spans four generations of the family and relates the ups and downs that the company has experienced over its first 80 years.
It tells how Sam with his children started a small shed-building business in their back garden in the Midlands and, with the help of an incredibly loyal workforce, succeeded in creating a company that was and is the envy of many of its competitors.
The Wernick Group today is made up of five main trading companies, operates from 36 sites around the UK, had revenues in excess of £85 million and profits in excess of £10 million in 2013 and employs over 550 people.
