No factory, no problem
March 2020

Commercial PVCu and aluminium supplier UK Glazing Group says it has saved £350,000 and boosted output by 25% in its first year since ceasing manufacturing and choosing CUSTOMADE GROUP as its fabricator.

As an added benefit, the company is now investing £100,000 to convert its former 3,500 square foot factory in North Manchester into a showroom.

The showroom features Customade Group products, including aluminium windows and doors from Real Aluminium, glazed roof lanterns from Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, PVCu windows from Polyframe and composite doors from Virtuoso Doors.

The showroomis modelled on the stand that drew thousands of visitors to Customade Group at the FIT Show in 2019. 

UK Glazing Group’s director Chris Barton explained: “This has been a phenomenal year for the business and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to stop fabricating and buy in our products from Customade Group. We’ve made huge savings by not having to buy and store stock and our output has dramatically increased.

“We’re very excited to open our new showroom, which looks just like the stand that Customade Group created for the FIT Show. It’s very clean and modern and the feedback from visitors has been really positive. We now have a stylish, purpose-built space to showcase our range of products and win new business. 

Customade Group area sales manager Steve Roberts said: “The new showroom looks amazing and, judging by the response we had to our identical stand at the FIT Show, we know that it’s a winning formula! We wish them every success for the future.”
