Glass and roof sales up
Double R Glass and Roofing Systems has seen sales soar in Q1 across all products including glass, decorative and roofs, the company has reported.
Double R’s managing director Ian Sims said: “We’re thrilled to have had such a strong start to 2019, with our glass sales up 26% and roof sales up 16% for the period, but it’s thanks to the hard work of the entire team at Double R that we are seeing such great results.
“There has been a lot of change at Double R in the last few years, including significant investment in the first fully automated vertical Super Spacer Hot Melt line of its kind in the UK, which while a huge coup for us, has meant implementing a completely different way of working in our glass factory.
“More recently we have also recruited several new employees including a new manufacturing manager to further improve efficiency on the factory floor.”
The company has also brought new products to market, including the R-Light Lantern, alongside conservatory roof installer support.
“In December last year, we took home first prize for Glass Company of the Year in the much-coveted G-Awards for putting customers first and continuously improving our offering. This is an approach we apply to the whole business and it’s an approach that’s particularly welcomed amid the uncertainty we continue to see within our market place and in the wider economy.
“We’ve got lots more developments planned for 2019 including another new product launch on the horizon, so we’re looking forward to building on this strong start to the year for us and our customers.”
