Post-lockdown recovery

Deceuninck has seen a ‘spectacular’ post-lockdown recovery, with June sales up 15% year-on-year.

The systems company said demand is particularly strong for flush windows and doors, and for colour.

Deceuninck MD Rob McGlennon said: “Our sales in June increased 15% year-on-year, well ahead of our pre-Covid budget, which is quite simply spectacular. By last month Deceuninck fabricators had all returned to work and they’ve reported very strong demand across the board.

“The home improvement market is booming; consumers have spent the past few months at home, thinking of ways to improve their properties. The majority won’t be going on holiday so they’re spending money updating and enhancing their homes instead. Deceuninck’s tempting product offering, wide colour range from stock, and reliable service gives fabricators and installers the tools to tap into this lucrative market. Our commercial sales are very strong too, and we have a number of large, prestigious projects in the pipeline.

“We’re feeling confident about the future and the long-term prospects for Deceuninck and our customers. The next few months won’t be without challenge, but this industry has a track record of strong recovery after recessions.

“Like the Bank of England, my money’s on a V-shaped recession.”
