Forget plan B, plan Abcell

For busy conservatory installers, the advantages of working with one fabricator for all their needs has a wide range of benefits. Emma Ashworth, business development manager at Abcell, explains…

Now that Plan B measures are being substantially reduced, we can finally start to enjoy a greater degree of normality in our day to day lives.

Having a Plan B is almost always a good idea – however, when an installer works in partnership with a trusted manufacturer who can supply the full catalogue of products that they need, there’s no need for a back-up plan.

With masses of people now used to working from home, and many now set to continue doing so on a long-term basis, homeowners are increasingly pushing forward with their own Plan B to create more space with glazed extensions.

The obvious choice to increase square footage and add value to a property, the ‘improve not move’ trend of recent years has already caused a significant rise in popularity for conservatories, albeit with solar glass.

Installers are heavily in demand due to this increasing requirement and key to successfully meeting customer needs is to find a fabricator who is not only an expert in the sector, but one who manufactures a huge selection of quality products.

This is a very exciting time for the industry and one of the deciding factors for me joining the Abcell team was the extensive catalogue of products they fabricate. It may be a cliché, but installers really can get everything they need all under one roof, and it’s great to be able to offer them this.

As the Glazed Extension Merchants, GEM for short, Abcell offers a 24-carat service to the trade with a full spectrum of glass conservatory roofs, solid roofs, lanterns and sky lights, as well as aluminium and PVC-U windows, bi-folds and patio doors, plus composite doors and garden room kits.

We are the UK’s largest trade manufacturer of both the Guardian Warm Roof and WarmCore, while also fabricating leading roof, window, and door system brands Ultraframe, AluK and Stratus Lanterns.

Last year, we added Deceuninck’s 2800 Heritage Sculptured windows, flush casement windows and flush residential and French doors to the range, as well as Truedor composite doors, making us the perfect partner for installers looking to find everything they need from one trusted supplier.

There are other benefits for installers who primarily source products from one company. When buying your roof, windows and doors all from the same place, you’ll be dealing with one point of contact and have one guarantee. The convenience of this shouldn’t be underestimated – we all know that time is money.

Speaking of time, the online ordering function on our website enables busy customers to price up and place orders for WarmCore and AluK bi-fold doors at a time that suits them – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Another major advantage of working with one supplier on a long-term basis is rapport. As you get to know the people you are dealing with on a regular basis, the positive relationships that this builds can be a major boost to a business.

It also means that customers can take advantage of the collective know-how of the Abcell team. If you’re struggling with ideas for a tricky job, or just need advice on which product would work best for a particular project, we are able to offer expert advice, information and guidance.

So, for installers looking for a fabricator that can service all their requirements to fulfil busy order books, stick to Plan A – Plan Abcell.
