Increased demand

Kenrick has reported a rise in sales for two of its best-selling products.

The West Bromwich-based firm has reported that sales of its Easi-Fit window lock have increased by 50% while sales of the Excalibur multi-point locking system are up by 25%.

Steve Jones, managing director at Kenrick, said: “Despite a slowdown in the housing market and uncertainty surrounding Brexit, fabricator demand for these products continues to rise. We are very focused on driving sales opportunities both in the UK and overseas and improving margins for our customers and these impressive results prove that we are achieving this.”

He continued: “We’re particularly proud of the significant uplift in sales for Excalibur however. This is largely due to us winning some exciting new business in Eastern Europe where timber windows are more common. The Excalibur shootbolt is totally retractable – making it an ideal solution for timber windows – and it does not compromise on security, performance or longevity, which is perfect for the demands of the Eastern European market.”
