Known for being a company who never stand still the team at family run Midlands based manufacturing firm, Howells Patent Glazing, are pushing for a record year for the 3rd year in a row. The firm hopes that their latest product launch, a new stock roof sized roof light, will contribute to sales growth and the firm’s biggest year for turnover yet.
Howells’s new slim line roof light bar, which offers thermal efficiency without compromising on style and design, is a great way to harness the liberating power of glass, bringing light and space into any environment. The bar was developed by the Director of Howells Patent Glazing, Gary Howells, and the process involved using innovative design technologies, structural engineers and several trial makes.
Tracey Jackson, Marketing Manager at Howells Patent Glazing said, “We seemed to be having a lot of requests for bespoke roof lights, in similar sizes, where the builder had flexibility in the actual finished size. These all seemed to be unvented and in standard colours of white /grey, single or dual colours. We developed the slim line roof light bar to cater for this demand from builders and have recently launched our new roof lights to market with great success. Our new slim line roof light has all the aesthetics of our original standard design, but is lighter as it uses a slimmer bar, which in itself gives improved light”.
According to the sales team at Howells Patent Glazing, their latest product has proved to be a great option to those with tight turnarounds, but still requiring a ‘made to order’ product. Aesthetically, it is similar to the firms bespoke range, but as it is ready built in more popular sizes and thus cuts down on the manufacturing time.
Dave Bennett, Sales Director at Howells Patent Glazing said, “Our customers are loving our new product and have been placing a lot of repeat orders since we launched it to market. We carry the stock, so that our customers do not have to”.
Being a forward thinking manufacturing firm is important to Howells Patent Glazing. Their reputation for being one of the best in their industry is something they are very proud of, and they like to encourage the development of their staff. The positive impact of a close and well looked after team is what Howells’ believe allows them to continually expand their business. The whole team are looking forward to a year of change, and some big things are said to be coming their way in 2016.
