Prefix acquires Pavilion

Prefix Systems Holdings has acquired Sussex-based conservatory roof and aluminium systems fabricator Pavilion Systems, in a move that will increase the manufacturing capabilities to five sites across the group.

This investment by Prefix provides what it calls an important geographical location to further develop the south east, with daily deliveries and a more localised level of technical expertise and support.

As the fifth manufacturing site in the group, it will also allow Prefix to introduce further premium products into their portfolio, the company said.

Chris Cooke, director of Prefix Systems, said: “This is an important strategic acquisition for Prefix as we look to build our network of manufacturing and customer service facilities. The synergies with Pavilion are obvious for the short-term, but in the longer term we believe that this will provide us with the perfect hub to allow us to expand our supply and support across the south east with new premium products as well as our core roof offerings.”

Pavilion Systems was established in 1998 and has built a reputation for product quality and customer service under Philip Derbyshire, who will remain in the business. Both Ultraframe and Quantal conservatory roofs will continue to be manufactured from the existing site, with new products introduced over the coming months and years ahead, allowing Prefix to accelerate its growth plans.

“We can now offer true UK wide service and support with a unique customer-centric business model, with localised expertise and the fact that Philip will remain in the business is an important part of this philosophy,” Chris said.
