Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions reports that it is well on course for its best year yet as it toasts a trio of important milestones for the business. The aluminium conservatory and lantern roof fabricator has just celebrated a record week in roof fabrication, marked exceptional year on year growth of 93% and is on the shortlist for an industry award.
Sales of the company’s range of conservatory roofs, lanterns and rooflights are said to have virtually doubled in the last 12 months and Atlas is now fabricating at least 100 roofs a week. October has reportedly been the busiest month for Atlas with fabrication on a single shift peaking at 125 roofs in one week – the highest ever output for the firm. And now Atlas is among just a handful of companies to be shortlisted in the Conservatory Roof Fabricator category of the National Fenestration Awards.
Gareth Thomas, sales and marketing director at Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, explained: “We are absolutely delighted with how the business has performed in 2015, with record sales and healthy year on year growth which is showing no signs of slowing down. We’ve worked hard to develop a business formula that meets the needs of trade and domestic customers alike. As a result, we’re taking on at least 30 new installers every month and the Atlas brand of ultra-slim profile contemporary roof products has a growing presence among the homeowner.
“We’re really pleased to be a finalist in the NFA awards, which underlines our commitment as a fabricator to develop best of breed products that combine design, performance and aesthetics without compromise. 2016 promises to be another big year for us and we are looking forward to building on this solid foundation and taking our business to the next level.”
