Prefix acquire Pavilion Systems


Chris Cooke, director of Prefix Systems

Prefix Systems Holdings Ltd have acquired Sussex-based conservatory roof and aluminium systems fabricator Pavilion Systems Ltd, in a move that will increase the manufacturing capabilities to five sites across the Group.

This strategic investment by Prefix provides an important geographical location to further develop the South East, with daily deliveries and a more localised level of technical expertise and support, as is the Prefix way. As the fifth manufacturing site in the Group, it will also allow Prefix to introduce further premium products into their portfolio as they look to build on their reputation as the market leaders in extended living space and aluminium glazed solutions.

Pavilion Systems was established in 1998 and has built an impressive reputation for product quality and customer service under Philip Derbyshire, who will remain in the business. Both Ultraframe and Quantal conservatory roofs will continue to be manufactured from the existing site, with new products carefully introduced over the coming months and years ahead, allowing Prefix to accelerate their growth plans for the short and medium term in this important geographical location.Chris Cooke, director of Prefix Systems commented: ‘This is an important strategic acquisition for Prefix as we look to build our network of manufacturing and customer service facilities. The synergies with Pavilion are obvious for the short-term, but in the longer term we believe that this will provide us with the perfect hub to allow us to expand our supply and support across the South East with new premium products as well as our core roof offerings.

He continued: ‘We can now offer true UK wide service and support with a unique customer-centric business model, with localised expertise and the fact that Philip will remain in the business is an important part of this philosophy.’

Prefix Systems (UK)

Prefix Systems is the UK’s largest independent fabricator of conservatory roofs with a history that dates back to 1996. Run by Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, the leading Ultraframe fabricator operates from a head office in Clayton-Le-Moors, Lancashire and from two further manufacturing sites in Northamptonshire and Swansea.

Prefix is the only conservatory fabricator in the UK with a number of regional fabrication facilities which provides the necessary expertise for the local market and the added support that goes with it. Prefix was arguably the first fabricator in the UK to provide a wide range of laminated colours which now extends to 10, along with a unique cast iron effect for gutters.

The company also has considerable expertise in portal frames and in the retro-fit market. There is an estimated replacement market of 3million conservatories and with their Retro-fix and Multibeam products developed with Window Widgets, Prefix is set to take a lead in addressing this important market sector.
