Howells offers supply chain stability

Howells Patent Glazing understands the importance and value of a robust supply chain partner, and as such, it is pleased to announce that it has increased capacity to manage a notable rise in orders and conversions as customers seek stability and continuity of supply during these challenging times.

Specialising in the design and manufacture of glazed products, including roof lights, canopies and patent glazing bars, Howells provides a supply only and supply and fit offering for both domestic and commercial applications. Unsurprisingly at this time, Howells has seen a 10% increase in its supply only service.

One of the advantages of the supply only service is Howells’ white label offering, both the products and delivery vehicles are unbranded; giving customers greater flexibility, manageability and profitable opportunity.

The completed rooflight is also assembled in the factory and photographs shared with the customer, to minimise problems and eradicate risk. Anything below 20ft is delivered ready assembled, while anything over that is disassembled and then reassembled [if requested] at the other end. The beauty of this is that as it has already been made up, all the holes are predrilled, and it will fit first time.

Having been in business for more than 40 years, the company understands that continuity of supply and stock management is critical during times of uncertainty, and so it operates two storage areas. This allows the team to stockpile aluminium bar in a variety of sizes and powder coated finishes, alongside a selection of glazing.

Neither is the company beholden to a systems house. Each and every roof light system is bespoke; designed and manufactured by Howells in an ISO 9001:2015 certified facility.

Products are independently tested for weathertightness (BS 6375 Part 1) and resistance to snow and permanent load (EN 14351). Meeting the demands of both new build and retrofit schemes, they are also PAS 24 certified and achieve Secured by Design status.

Installers benefit from written instructions with every delivery and can access installation video guides. The company also offers a Rooflight Familiarisation Workshop, the first GQA approved rooflight course in the UK, alongside an online familiarisation workshop in slimline rooflight assembly.

So, if you’re looking for a stable supplier of high-quality rooflights and bespoke glazed products, please contact Tracey Jackson on 01384 820060.
