Moving to our Blackburn premises - a year ago already - has allowed us to support this growth”, says Marketing Manager Anne-Marie Busch. And this success was reflected when we started the year with a bang, once again seeing record roof sales in the first quarter of 2019. Investments in machinery, software and staff, combined with continuous improvements to our production line and to the roof system itself, are all part of our commitment to be the solid roof supplier of choice. We believe the Icotherm roof is the best of its kind on the market today; easy to install, high performing, fully ventilated, and with a dedicated customer support team. Icotherm Roof Systems - a trading name of Iconservatories Limited - designs and manufactures timber framed warm roof solutions for trade. Icoroof – a pitched roof, has sold in the thousands since its inception in 2014. www.icotherm.co.uk Is a second-time success on the cards? » » DEKKO WINDOW SYSTEMS WILL BE looking to follow up on an impressive FIT Show debut in 2018 with an array of premium products and services on display.
