Aluminium boost to business

Sherborne Windows has increased its aluminium business by 50% after making the move to Real Aluminium.

Chris Long, managing director of Sherborne Windows, said: “We are very pleased to have increased our spend on aluminium by 50% compared to the same period last year. There is a rapidly rising demand in the domestic market for aluminium and we have been able to take advantage of these positive trading conditions because we have a robust supply chain in place and access to full sales and marketing support to help us achieve growth.”

Sherborne began installing aluminium glazed roofing systems from Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, which is also part of the Customade Group, some time ago and recognised that Real Aluminium could help the company achieve growth in aluminium.

“The quoting and product lead times for the range of Real Aluminium products are way ahead of other fabricators and this has helped us to confidently secure new business and keep customers satisfied,” Chris said. “The whole package behind these products is seamless and we know that we have won more aluminium work because of the support it delivers. The team at Real is dedicated to our success and that makes an enormous difference to how smoothly our relationship with them works.”

An Atlas Skyroom and Real Aluminium windows and doors have been installed at Sherborne’s showroom in Windlesham, while the Hartley Wintney site features a selection of flat rooflights, aluminium bifolding doors and french doors. Sherborne has seen a significant uplift in aluminium sales as a direct result of homeowners visiting the showroom.
