Despite the fragile economy, the recent Fabricator and Installer Report from data experts Insight Data has highlighted growth within the industry, with Scotland turning up trumps as the area with the highest increase in window companies outside of London.
Research carried out by Insight Data revealed the biggest changes in numbers over the last 12 months occurred in the North, but whilst Scotland saw a net increase of 55 window companies, the North West saw a decline of 36, the highest of any area, over the same period of time.
“Our figures have shown that the window industry is particularly buoyant in Scotland,” comments Insight Data’s Analyst Jade Greenhow, “however we have identified that other areas in the North are not experiencing the same levels of success. At the moment Scotland appears to be a ‘hotspot’ within the UK window industry, compared to other areas of the UK.
This brings a raft of opportunities for fabricators and installers looking to extend their customer base into new areas as more window companies are springing up across Scotland with a need for companies to buy from and sell to.”
Research commissioned by BBC Newcastle revealed that Scotland spends 76% more per head of population on economic affairs than the North East of England. From 2010 to 2011 Scotland spent £1,033 per head, whilst the North East spent just £587.
The investment appears to have paid off as the Insight Report also reveals that three of the UK’s top fabricators hail from Scotland, with some Scottish manufacturers enjoying extraordinary growth.
