Adapt and invest
Window Supply Company (WSC) has announced a 234% increase in manufacturing output since March 2020.
Easing out of lockdown in June 2020, the company said it faced a huge increase in market demand. In response, WSC invested in its team, increasing the number of employees by 90%. The company said is recruited staff previously made redundant as a result of the pandemic, or those in sectors with a now uncertain future, delivering training and adding to their skillset.
The company now employs 96 people throughout its manufacturing facility and trade counter network, and will continue to invest in the new year to support their business growth strategy.
WSC ramped up production with capacity now at 240 windows per day. This moves the company close to restoring its 95% otif score from the previous March.
CEO Duncan Murray said: “Our success since easing out of lockdown is undeniably the result of how quickly we responded to the new normal. We adapted and we invested, not only in people, but in technology and infrastructure, and emerged a strong and stable supplier, trusted by our customers.”
