The supply of PVCu Windows, Doors and Conservatories to the Trade and New Build residential in the UK. “The Trade” consists of retail installers who sell to the public and less frequently, to local authorities (for use in public buildings).
Consort has a nationwide customer base, which includes many long established businesses, often family run. The better established retailers gain business through “word of mouth”, with some Website Leads and advertising support. Sales to New Build residential are via Solair, a sister company, specialising in supplying and installing to New Build sites throughout the UK.
Consort does not sell directly to the public.
Windows and doors are fabricated from lengths of PVCu extrusion, which are cut to size, welded, hardware applied and then glazed. The products are then delivered to customers on the company fleet of vehicles. All the products are manufactured to order, each one being unique and delivered within five working days of receipt of clean order.
Conservatories, which are a structural product, also made to measure, are supplied within ten days of receipt of order. Consort currently manufactures approximately 2000 window frames, 400 – 500 doors and 20 conservatories per week.
