Wakefield fabricator secures £2m of new business

Conservatory Outlet, the Wakefield-based specialist fabricator, has more than doubled the size of its business over the last five years after announcing £2 million of new business in 2018.

The business has seen turnover increase from £8.4m in 2013 to £18.3m this year, with the significant growth attributed to a strategic plan focused on actively boosting its network of retail customers through tailored sales, marketing and operational support.

It has also completed its largest product launch to date, introducing the industry-leading ‘Extreme Collection’ of window and doors to the market.

Supported by a major marketing drive, it is anticipated that this roll-out will generate further sales opportunities between now and 2020.

“We are continually innovating our products, the technology we use and the customer service we deliver and it appears to be paying off with year-on-year growth since 2013,” said MD Michael Giscombe.

“Our Yorkshire factory has also enjoyed significant investment in advanced production capabilities and we’ve matched this spending in the creation of 43 new jobs that ensures we have the skills we need to meet demand.”

He added: “With the addition of Bon Accord Glass in Aberdeen and Styleglaze in Daventry this year, we have boosted our geographic coverage even further and are able to support even more customers.”

Conservatory Outlet’s growth has been recognised externally when it recently secured the prestigious ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ title at the Wakefield Manufacturing Awards.
