Window Supply Company’s expansion gathers pace with 10th trade counter in Manchester
Window Supply Company’s ambitious expansion plans are continuing at pace as the company opens in Manchester, further expanding their trade counter network to support installers in the Northwest region of England.
Established in March 2019, Scotland based uPVC windows and doors manufacturer, Window Supply Company (WSC) has fast become the largest trade window and door manufacturer in Scotland and now positioned as one of the largest in the UK. The company’s new 105,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility is in Whitburn West Lothian, and supports trade customers from branches in Aberdeen, Bellshill, Dundee, Edinburgh, Inverness, Kilmarnock, Lincoln, Livingston, and Sheffield.
Now open in Manchester, the new branch is the company’s 10th trade counter location and 3rd in England. An industry first for a Scotland based trade fabricator to expand operations South of the border, Window Supply Company continues to break the mould. The company’s expansion into England is driven by Sarah Starkey, Sales Director – England, with established branches already thriving in Sheffield and Lincoln.
The Manchester branch is in Oakhill Trading Estate which boasts excellent transport links - ensuring the branch is easily accessible to trade customers. The 6,300 sq. ft. warehouse and office space is in Unit 4 and features an impressive windows and doors showroom. Showcasing some of the industry’s most technically advanced uPVC and aluminium products - all in the one place. The showroom offers trade customers a relaxed space to bring clients to demonstrate the wide range of fenestration products available with free tea and coffee available.
Trade customers in Manchester can tap into the Smart Home Market with WSC. Kubu Smart compatible windows are already manufactured as standard, helping trade customers capitalise on the increasing interest in Smart Home Technology. The Manchester showroom is set up to demonstrate Kubu Smart Sensor technology on both windows and doors, a real market differentiator for trade customers.
Trade customers can also get a preview of the company’s new range of composite doors on display in Manchester. Composite doors are manufactured in-house, and feature a huge range of styles, glazing options, and hardware, further enhancing WSC’s product offering. Manufacturing products previously bought in ensures WSC stays ahead in terms of upcoming trends, while firmly in control of quality and service levels.
Also available is a free skip service offered to trade customers. This initiative saves WSC customers precious time and money on skip hire, by providing free skips for old window and door waste. Old uPVC frames and glass are then recycled to produce new uPVC and glass products, minimising the company’s impact on the environment.
Soudal ancillary products and Liniar trims are available in-store for added convenience. Customers can pick up a range of window and door brochures while discussing upcoming projects with the friendly team in-store. Free bespoke marketing support is available; company logos and contact details can be added to brochures, flyers and drop cards to create a professional suite of promotional materials to promote their business.
Sarah Starkey, Sales Director England says: ‘We look forward to welcoming tradespeople in and around the Manchester area into the new branch. We offer a diverse range of products and services developed so trade customers can stay ahead. Our priority is to deliver unrivalled service and support to tradespeople through our Manchester trade counter and the dedicated team in-store’.
Duncan Murray CEO adds, ‘This is a very exciting time for Window Supply Company as we open our 10th branch nationwide in just four years of operation. Adapting quickly to market conditions has no doubt been fundamental in our success to date. We work continuously to enhance and improve our product and service offering to trade installers, which is evident in our continued growth.’
