PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS Premium manufactured products give customers a competitive edge » » AFTER A RECENT TAKEOVER, THE new management team at UK Window Systems is keen to show existing and new customers just what makes them different from other manufacturers. The Stoke-on-Trent based fabricator operates out of a 30,000 square foot manufacturing site on the outskirts of the city; accommodating a spectacular showroom facility with a range of full size conservatories and orangeries, a trade counter - supporting local trade and manufacturing capabilities of producing up to 1,000 frames per week. Nick Holloway, Sales Director, comments: “A new management team was introduced to the business last November after investors took over the company. The business already had a great portfolio of products, including windows and doors manufactured from leading profile system Rehau and roofing systems from Ultraframe.” The business also supplies three of The Residence Collection profile systems; R9, R7 and R2. The systems have become one of the UK’s more popular choices, particularly in areas of conservation and homes looking for traditional sash window styles. “The Residence Collection is a great product range for the business. It enables us to offer a broad choice of windows and doors in a range of styles and colours. In addition, we are one of a small number of fabricators in the UK to be able to offer seamless corner joints on all our Residence windows and doors,” Nick adds. UK Window Systems recently invested over £300k to purchase a seamless Graf Synergy welder. The welder enables the fabricator to offer customers a range of seamless window and door frames at no additional cost to the installer. “In today’s competitive market, being able to offer a seamless jointed window or door can really add financial value. This unique selling point for our customers gives them the opportunity to sell the homeowner a premium finished product with a fantastic, contemporary appearance and feel, at no additional cost to them. “The new team at UK Window Systems has high hopes for the business and we have already made several strategic improvements, including the appointment of additional resource to our customer service support, a redesign of our trade counter to offer more product lines and the inevitable introduction of a range of new products set to be launched in Spring,” Nick concluded.
