NEW YEAR MESSAGES
Perhaps as a result
of being located in
Northern Ireland, early
on we undertook that
we would continue to plan for growth
and not try to anticipate the politicians and
outcome of the Brexit battles. And this has worked well for us.
Growth has been consistent throughout the political turbulence,
and we believe that sales will grow even more consistently now.
Early in 2020, we will be officially opening our latest extension
to the factory which now brings it up to 130,000ft2, sales of our
composite doors, especially Silka, continue to grow and we are
well into the development of some exciting new consumer-facing
marketing support materials.
Our Lumi window range sells well in the home improvement
sector and we will make this ever more exciting with new
products in the second quarter.
I believe that there was a real
danger of pulling the covers over
our heads until Brexit was brought to
a conclusion and if we had done so then
we would have missed a lot of key opportunities. Instead, we
planned and went for growth with the result that 2019 has been
a record year for us.
We introduced a new double shift pattern, installed £350,000
of advanced PVC-U machinery and launched our Legacy vertical
slider, all key milestones during 2019. The factory extension and
delivery fleet expansion that were set in motion last year, will come
to fruition early in 2020.
And I am delighted that we have also been able to pay attention
to our people, putting in place welfare and social schemes that
ensure the wellbeing of the extended Quickslide community.
