CDW Systems is celebrating a record 2015, with demand for its aluminium windows and doors from homeowners helping to spark a significant increase in sales.

In the twelve months from January 2014 to January 2015, CDW’s turnover increased by 20%, compared to same period the previous year.

One of the reasons CDW achieved a record year of trading was the acquisition of a high number of new customers; coupled with an increasing order book for its existing clients.

Management information at the Gloucester based fabricator also shows that more aluminium windows and doors are being specified for domestic refurbishment and renovation projects; as well as commercial applications.

Allan Little, Production Director at CDW Systems, comments: “Homeowner demand for aluminium windows and doors shows no sign of slowing down. As a material it is now on a par with PVCu when it comes to energy efficiency; and its endearing qualities such as slim sightlines and good looks remain. Going forward this demand will only rise, as homeowner tastes become more discerning.

“We’re also seeing a trend of replacement windows installed in the 1980s being replaced again – this time with aluminium as the material of choice. It’s happening and our customers are amongst the beneficiaries.”

Even though aluminium is proving increasingly popular in the domestic market, CDW’s managing director Jerry Webb has been vocal about the sector’s need to deliver a solution that is suitable for the new-build market.

He says: “Aluminium has always been the material of choice for the commercial market but until recently was rarely used in the domestic market, and is almost non-existent in the highly competitive new build sector.

“There are still plenty of opportunities out there for aluminium and we will continue to champion its use and support our customers in taking advantage of lucrative new markets.”

CDW Systems has been at the forefront of the aluminium market for over 20 years, and works with some of the leading aluminium systems companies to research, design and bring a new product to market every year.

CDW manufactures a range of products including windows, doors, conservatory roofs, curtain walling and shop fronts and supplies these for domestic and commercial projects across the UK.
