CONSERVATORES SEEKING EXPANSION » » BUILDING A UK-WIDE reputation over more than 15 years of innovative, boundary- pushing design, Leicester-based Roof Maker has firmly established itself as the country’s foremost supplier of high quality roof lights. After its £30m acquisition by private finance group Next Wave Partners LLP, the fast- growing firm plans to significantly ramp up its activities – and now, the traditionally consumer-facing business is seeking to expand the trade side of its operation. Roof Maker’s extensive product offering boasts exceptional thermal performance, robustness, user- friendliness and style, consisting of bespoke roof lights engineered to be best-in-class. As consumer tastes have shifted, and demand for premium, high-performance glazing products has grown, the fast-growing firm has successfully positioned itself as the leading roof light supplier to the booming higher end of the market – which, as CEO Paul Mildenstein explains, presents huge opportunities for experienced, conscientious installers. “At Roof Maker, our ethos is clear. We want to challenge the idea that all roof light products are the same – that a roof window is essentially just a roof window. Over years of intensive investment and product development, we’ve built a portfolio of best-in-class natural light solutions with minimalistic design, energy efficiency and all-round performance that stand them out from the crowd. “With thousands of aspirational consumers looking for bespoke, stylish home improvement solutions, our products are perfectly positioned to help installers capitalise at the high end of the market. That’s why we’re now looking for experienced, established, conscientious installation firms who share our commitment to excellence, and our belief that premium roofline products should be prized just as highly as high end windows and doors.” Roof Maker supply a selection of high-performance rooflight products. The LuxLite roof window is a sleek, stylishly contemporary aluminium roof light. The company’s fixed flat roof lights are respected throughout the industry for their minimalist elegance and fantastic thermal performance. Roof Maker also offer chain-actuated, electric hinged opening flat roof lights, and pyramid-shaped roof lights featuring ultra-thin glazing connectors that maximise the intake of natural light. Paul concluded: “If you’re an ambitious installation firm with an uncompromising commitment to quality, we’d love to hear from you. Don’t hesitate to get in touch.” www.roof-maker.co.uk Best Practice » » WAKEFIELD BASED FABRICATOR Conservatory Outlet has launched an enhanced programme of events for 2017, equipping each of its network retail partners with new information, experiences, ideas and PR opportunities.
