It’s hard to believe that we’re already over a quarter of the way through 2014 and we’re only 2 weeks away from the biggest event of the year – Grand Designs Live, where we will be putting on a grand display showcasing our entire range of luxury external shading systems on stand G117 located at the entrance of the Grand Gardens Hall.
The first three months of the year have been extraordinarily busy, in particular for our production facility who have been working flat out to keep up with demand. Orders year on year for our external roller blinds alone have increased by over 400%, yes more than 4 times the volumes for the same quarter in 2013, and our patio awnings, which for the past several years sales have been fairly consistent have rose by almost 78%.
The warm dry weather over the past 4-6 weeks has played a role in this increase, with many consumers experiencing uncomfortable heat build up along with glare in their properties and with the above average temperatures set to continue until at least the end of June, have sought to install an effective solution (external blinds) sooner, rather than later, before the temperature in their properties / on their terraces becomes unbearable.
But most of all customers are appreciating the genuine, honest, expert advice we provide, and inside-out understanding of our products and what will best suit their needs, with no pressure selling. And this is the difference of dealing direct with the manufacturer and only company in the industry dedicated 100% purely to the field of exterior solar shading. The knowledge, experience and passion of all our team, who are fully employed by us, makes such a difference, it enables us to provide the right solution, precision manufactured and perfectly installed, first time, every time and is what has lead to the tens of thousands of satisfied customers who are happy to recommend us to their friends, family and colleagues, with the resultant effect of increased sales.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has trusted us over the years with their outdoor living / solar shading requirements and of course recommended us. And we look forward to transforming the use, functionality and enjoyment from both indoor / outdoor spaces to many thousands of new customers throughout 2014 and beyond.
