Patio door sales soar for Vufold

Vufold, a large, family-run window and door company, has reported that sales of its sliding patio doors are ‘higher than ever’ 12 months on from adding the Cortizo aluminium system from Hepworth into its range.

David Ross, sales manager at Vufold, said: “We’re delighted with the success of the Cortizo range from Hepworth. We were previously using a singular aluminium system that was quite expensive, but since we introduced the Cortizo bi-fold and sliding aluminium door system into our offering, sales have increased dramatically as the system is much more cost effective.

“In particular, we’ve seen a notable increase in the sales of our sliding patio doors in this range, which we believe is because the aluminium frame provides a much more aesthetically pleasing finish than it’s PVC-U predecessor, which lends itself to the more modern projects.

“Hepworth consistently proves to be reliable and trustworthy in terms of its product quality and service delivery, which makes a real difference when we are managing the day-to-day expectations of our customers.

“We have a great relationship with Hepworth,” he continued. “They have an extremely experienced management team and that experience is felt by their customers.

“They keep lines of communication open and are honest and transparent in their approach, which is all you can ask for from your supplier.”

Richard Steckles, managing director at Hepworth, said: “Vufuld is a shining example of a team that understands the need to develop and adapt in order to offer customers what they want and need.

“Their previous aluminium system was cumbersome and expensive, so they took the opportunity to change their offering and have seen great success with the Cortizo range. We look forward to supporting them as their aluminium door range continues on this upward trajectory.”
