Glazerite Windows Ltd has recorded its first-ever £10million half-year sales after growing nearly 40% year on year.
New products, new customers, plus strong growth in current customer accounts in all sectors helped the trade-only fabricator ring in excess of £10,500,000 for January – June, as against £7,500,000 in the same period last year.
The sales increase is only the latest in an unbroken chain of impressive growth since the company was founded less than 15 years ago.
“Our expansive product range has played a big part in the latest figures,” said Director Jason Thompson. The bulk of the growth came from helping established customers increase their own figures: “We have always recognised that we can only prosper if our customers prosper and, once again, most of our installer partners have shown significant growth in their own accounts. We always aim to do everything we can to support our customers and this is continuing to show itself in their own expansion.
“This amount of growth has put a strain on the whole industry supply chain and we have not been immune to its effects. But we feel the £1million-plus investment we committed to in the early part of the year will now come to fruition with our new ‘special’ factory coming online, our continued expansion of staff, the growing fleet of vehicles and further investment ensure we are ready for the future and will see us return to existing service and quality levels.”
This year has been Glazerite’s busiest ever for new product ranges, including the innovative New Wave swing/slide door, Solidor timber-core doors, the VEKA Imagine Bi-fold and the Residence 9 PVC-U flush sash windows among others.
Jason concluded: “We believe our growth to date is a testimony to our customer’s commitment to Glazerite and their belief in the products, service and support that we have provided. I wish to thank them all for their support and our continued mutual growth.”
