CONSERVATORIES Going Back to His Roots Premier Conservatory Supplies owner, Peter Gray, previously worked as Head of Operations at K2 through its formative years, before setting up a successful components company that supplied fabricators and systems companies. After a successful spell selling another roof system, Peter decided it was time to go back to his roots, and in 2011 set up Premier Conservatory Supplies to fabricate roofs using the K2 system, based at the old K2 premises in Bolton. With keen backing from his supplier Peter’s business grew quickly, benefitting from a K2 loss of presence in his region, and through the demise of other local fabricators in the North West over the last few years. Using their joint industry knowledge and shared contacts, and a desire to drive the business forward, Premier Conservatory Supplies went from strength to strength. By March 2012 the business was in position to recruit roof and orangery specialist, Andrew Buglass, helping the business take advantage of this rapidly growing niche area. This also coincided nicely with the launch of K2’s own orangery system. Premier Conservatory Supplies were, in fact, the first in the UK to fabricate K2’s orangery roof system, and as a result it now boasts an impressive national customer base. Since the acquisition of K2 by Synseal in May of last year, Peter has been in close consultation with the company and sees this move as a fantastic opportunity to venture in new markets and offer new possibilities to his own customers. In the coming months, Premier Conservatory Supplies will be looking to launch new products, which will be featured in future editions of Clearview. There will also be a new website showcasing brand new photography of inspiring installations. Peter Gray commented, “Premier Conservatory Supplies can rightly boast to be one of the fastest growing fabricators in the UK. This is down to hard work, a product offering people want, support from our suppliers and our combined industry expertise and contacts. We look forward to offering new products to existing and new customers in 2013. This combined with a move to larger premises, and an imminent launch of a new painting division gives us plenty to look forward to this year!” Tel: 01204 238084, email:, Web: One of the fastest growing fabricators in the UK for a reason...
