INDUSTRYNEWS First £100k timber week Innovative trade fabricator Dempsey Dyer has sold more than £100k of timber in one week for the first time in their 35 year history. Four factors contributed to the record breaking sales - Dempsey’s commercial division winning a number of lucrative timber contracts, existing timber customers growing, uPVC customers moving into timber and new customers coming on board. Peter Dyer is delighted with the healthy order book: “Dempsey Dyer has manufactured timber windows, doors and conservatories since 1977 so it’s a nice feeling to break our timber sales record. The timber market is particularly buoyant at the moment, both in the commercial and domestic sectors, and Dempsey Dyer has worked hard to get a slice of this and support our trade customers so they win more orders.” Dempsey Dyer have recently helped several customers enter the lucrative timber market, including Surrey based Sheerwater Glass. Dempsey recently helped Sheerwater revamp their showroom, including a section that now displays timber windows and doors. Mark McCluggage from Sheerwater Glass said: “Since the opening of our timber showroom 6 weeks ago, we have secured in excess of £95,000 of new business and have found that margins are better with timber windows and doors.” Bison’s exclusive PVC VS with traditional timber jointing methods on every joint.
