Period of growth planned

Developments in both products and personnel have led Premier Roof Systems to grow its turnover by 50%.

Founded in 2011, the company makes, supplies and installs conservatories, orangeries, home extensions, roofs, rooflights, windows and doors.

Non-executive director Gary Lumby and technical sales manager Ashley Fox were appointed to help expand the firm, handle demand for its latest product offering, and manage the new relationship with Ultraframe.

Managing director Pouya Bostani said: “Product development is hugely important to us in an industry that’s continually changing, and we need to offer new and innovative products to stay at the forefront of developments in our sector.

“Ultraframe is highly regarded as a market leader renowned for continuously developing a wide range of products. This is a great fit for us as we aim to offer a variety of the best quality and most sought-after products available.

“Ashley is joining us from a 12-and-a-half year career with Ultraframe, and having worked nationally, brings with him a wealth of knowledge of the system and different customer needs.

“In addition, Gary’s many years of extensive experience at a senior level with Yorkshire Bank and on the board of other organisations means he can both advise and challenge us on our journey to deliver the firm’s vision, building on our recent success to increase revenue and staff numbers by 36 % year on year for the next three years.”

Gary was awarded an MBE for services to the finance industry in the 2008 new year’s honours list.

“I’m excited about the growth of the business which is set to increase by more than 50% in turnover this year following the introduction of new products and additional team members like Ashley,” Gary said.

“I’m looking forward to helping guide the company through this period of high growth, ensuring it has the correct resource structure in place, and appropriate funding available. We’re actively looking at opening trade counters across the north east, as well as looking to acquire complementary businesses and move to larger premises to accommodate our ongoing growth.”

Ultraframe products on offer at the firm include the Classic Roof, LivinRoof, UltraRoof, UltraSky, and UltraSky Flat.
