Business Profile

The business is an established, professionally managed company, which has been in business for over 40 years and has worked very hard at establishing itself as a well known brand within its regional market place. It is particularly associated with providing high levels of workmanship at a competitive price, but above all, for its reliability and responsiveness to the requirements of its customers.

From modest beginnings, fitting double glazed, replacement window products to domestic properties the company has gained a reputation for majority commercial, high quality installations at competitive prices but critically, not at loss to acceptable margins. This ethos has carried forward into the installation of doors, windows and conservatories.

The company’s activities now extend across the South of England fitting doors, windows and roofline products for Housing Associations, Hospital Trusts, Schools, Local Authorities and has framework agreemnts for many high profile clients.

A key factor in the ongoing success of this company is its strong relationships with government/institutional clients which have mandated requirements for improvements to the many properties under their control or responsibility.

During the more than 40 years of trading, the company has manufactured and installed PVC-U products in well over 35,000 homes and businesses across the region and consequently gained an enviable reputation for quality, service and reliability.

The business is kept very busy running its operation from large premises that include storage facilities, showroom and offices. A full turnkey solution is offered to the large database of both commercial and domestic clients that includes the supply and installation of a bespoke high quality range of UPVC and aluminium double glazed windows, doors, patio doors, french doors, conservatories and composite doors.

With a heritage in the manufacturing sector and understanding what can and can’t be done, the right solution is provided for every client – whether that be a single replacement unit or fulfilling the requirements of an entire property with a much higher order value. The strengths of this company include its expansive product knowledge and its technical expertise. Bespoke products are manufactured to the client’s specification with an assurance of getting exactly what is needed. Installation is undertaken by qualified and highly experienced self-employed fitting teams which has also helped to create a strong trading base.

The business is fully accredited and complies with all the current British Safety Standards, Ministry of Defence specifications, FENSA & Constructionline registered and ISO 9001 accredited. The company’s success has led to very high levels of repeat custom.
