Increased traffic

Kömmerling has reported strong sales across all brands, including the recently acquired WarmCore, Evolve and Legend.

Brian McDonald, sales director of Profine UK, said: “There’s been considerable increased traffic on the internet for windows and doors as measured by the latest Google statistics, while social media engagements have increased notably across the industry as a trade platform, along with consumers too. With many jobs already in the pipeline it’s been a strong start to the sector, but we have to remain cautious.

“While we have had an exceptional start, we realise that there are other pressures within the industry including furlough strategies, the payment of bills on time, and ultimately the movement of cash from the consumer up the supply chain.

“It’s paramount that we all work together for the greater good, but from our perspective, sales have accelerated strongly since we’ve re-opened with measures in place, which is great news for us and our trade partners.”

The new Profine facility in Huthwaite is currently extruding profiles and laminating, while the detailed UK integration plans are put into place.
