Merlin Network, which is part of Saveheat Group, says that the decision to single source from Kömmerling at the end of 2018 has been ‘particularly successful’. On the back of this, the group has now made the decision to open up the Blairs brand, which is known for timber windows, to the Kömmerling range of window and door systems.
The decision was reportedly based on a number of key criteria including product design, performance and quality and the fact that the management team felt that Kömmerling would be ‘a better all-round business partner’ for them as a group. The demands of the Scottish market are said to often require better performing products and the System 70, newly launched System 76, along with the PremiLine patio door now form the core product proposition under the Blairs and Merlin Network brands.
Alex Grey, managing director of Saveheat Group, commented: “This was a fundamentally important business decision for the long-term and we firmly believe that Kömmerling was the stand out choice for us. It’s a genuinely exciting partnership that we’re embarking on and are looking forward to taking our products to all geographic points in Scotland.”
