A colourful world
According to the latest sales figures from Deceuninck almost half of the company’s products are now foiled, due largely to the fact it holds 26 colourways in stock at all times.
“Colour is such a massive opportunity for fabricators and installers,” Deceuninck’s Rob McGlennon said, “but they’re often held back by systems companies at the top of the chain who are still struggling to get the supply of coloured products right.
In 2016, 44% of the profile we sold – including matching foiled trims, ancillaries and cills – was foiled. We could deliver this because we’ve been supplying colour on a big scale for a long time and have invested heavily to ensure we continue to meet the increasing demand.”
Deceuninck’s products are available off the shelf as bar length, and the company has recently invested in its dedicated fully automated foiling hall.
“This gives us the extra capacity that we’re forecasting will be required over 2017 and allows us to keep feeding into our 140,000 ft2 purpose-built warehouse, stocking over 2,500 colour units plus ancillaries, cills and trims,” Rob said.
Deceuninck’s dedicated online ordering system allows fabricators remote, real time access to the Calne warehouse. This means fabricators can put their name on products the company has in stock.
