Gearing up for growth

Garrard Windows has seen sales grow by more than 15% year on year.

Kenrick has supplied its Nemesis multi-point window locking system for aluminium profiles to Garrard for 18 months, during which time it has increased production each month as demand for aluminium continues to rise.

The expansion has also prompted the Aylesbury-based firm to increase its dedicated aluminium production space to 42,000ft2.

Lucy Griffith, office manager at Garrard Windows, said: “We’ve been fabricating aluminium for nine years now and have grown to become one of the biggest fabricators of Smart Systems’ aluminium products.

“We’re now fabricating around 300 frames a week and our sales forecasts are very strong indeed. To achieve our ambitious targets, we needed to work with the right hardware supplier that could provide the quality and value we expect, while being able to keep pace with our growth.

“We have a very long alliance with Kenrick, as they also supply locking systems to our PVCU business, and we knew that they had the capability and capacity to support this growth.”
