Gloucester based specialist aluminium fabricator CDW Systems Ltd is experiencing strong demand for its range of sliding folding doors.
CDW Systems’ Managing Director Jerry Webb says that they have benefited from the increasing popularity of the product in the domestic sector; an upturn in the economy and its continued popularity in the commercial sector.
He comments: “If we look at the domestic sector in particular, the number of homeowners replacing their patio door with a new aluminium sliding door or bi-folding door is increasing month on month, year on year.
“In years gone by sliding doors and bi-folds were a niche product in the domestic sector but this is changing and many of our customers are capitalising on this opportunity.”
CDW Systems manufacture and supply the ALUK, SAPA and Smarts sliding doors. Together with these suppliers CDW Systems have made modifications to the products, resulting in significantly less site call-outs and a smoother installation process for installers.
Jerry comments: “CDW Systems has been in business for over twenty years and is a specialist aluminium supplier through and through. If you combine the experience that we have on the factory floor it equals around three hundred plus years. We utilise this experience to offer the very best products and installation support.
“Installers can tap into this by taking advantage of our installation training and on-site help if necessary. Bi-folding doors represent a lucrative avenue but for those unfamiliar with the product they can be difficult to install at first.
“Our support service has helped to minimise these types of problems and allowed our customers to just concentrate on winning contracts and offering a fast-turnaround.”
CDW Systems recently polled 5657 aluminium installers in the UK for an exclusive report into the aluminium sector.
The results revealed optimism going forward and gave an insight into what installers are looking for in aluminium suppliers.
