Fentrade reports 20% sales growth


Trade aluminium fabricator Fentrade has reported a 20% increase in sales compared to the same period last year. Chris Reeks, Managing Director of Fentrade, said: “The growing strength of the aluminium market is reflected in our sales and we’re seeing a significant uptake in commercial projects across the board.”

Chris notes that Fentrade’s commercial order book encompasses projects of all sizes and in all sectors.

In the education sector, the company has been involved in two major projects involving complete window and full façade replacements. It’s a trend that is already set to continue, with future projects booked in for the summer holiday months.

Smaller scale projects are also increasing in number. Commercial entrance doors and emergency access products are particularly popular, with installers working with local authorities, retailers and main contractors.

Looking forward, Fentrade are quoting for a high volume of individual projects including for care homes and the MoD.

Chris commented: “Our strong sales pipeline reflects a buoyant commercial sector and we’re delighted to be playing our part in helping our customers to secure and deliver these contracts.”

Fentrade is an intelligent choice of aluminium fabrication partner because its wide range of systems means it can meet all customers’ needs.

The fabricator manufactures Kestrel and Jack Aluminium for its commercial products, with the AluK SL52 curtain walling and the GT55 ground floor treatment range also proving popular.

Alongside the appealing product range, Fentrade customers also benefit from the company’s depth of experience. Chris commented: “Our team has over 30 year’s fenestration experience, so we understand what customers need. We always communicate fully with every customer from quote to delivery.”

As Fentrade’s sales growth shows, the aluminium market is buoyant at the moment. As increasing numbers of customers are finding, Fentrade offers an exceptional way to capitalise on the opportunities.
