A FLAT ROOFING SUPPLIER is marking a record-breaking year after completing 24,000 orders over the last 12 months, the highest in its history.
The milestone is one of a number of achievements which Permaroof say has made 2019 its most successful year to date.
The Derbyshire-based company, which was founded 19 years ago, added 22,000 sq ft of warehouse space with 60,000 sq ft of racking to its head office in the early part of the year, and also increased its sales force by eight to form a nationwide team of 37.
During the year Permaroof acquired The Skylight Company and became the sole distributor of Permafence in 2019, as part of its strategy to offer high-quality, permanent solutions to age old building and DIY problems.
Managing Director Adrian Buttress said, “This has been a stellar year for Permaroof in terms of the growth of our team, services and products. The resulting sales figures are testament to the quality of our staff and the service they offer, as well as the strong relationships we’ve built with merchants and contractors nationwide.
“I’m incredibly proud not just of the number of sales but the types of projects we’re now working on. As we’ve recently launched into the commercial sector, we sold our largest roof to date at 12,000m2. I’m similarly delighted that we trained more than 500 professionals through our in-house courses; working to improve standards of installation and the reputation of the flat roofing market throughout the UK.
“Next year will see continued investment and growth; something that’s vital to continue the excellent support of the merchants and the contractors who work with us. We are looking to double our sales force to build even stronger ties across our customer network, launch a range of new, innovative products, and celebrate our 20th anniversary in style.”
