Specialist fabricator Mercury Glazing has reported a year-on-year growth of 18% with the company achieving its highest ever monthly sales figure in September. Steve Cross, Mercury’s Director, said: “We are delighted to be reporting such strong sales growth especially against the backdrop of so much market uncertainty. The economic situation is undoubtedly choppy so this is no time for complacency, but it’s important to observe these figures.”
Steve says the company’s ongoing success is down to three clear factors.
The first is its strong portfolio of specialist products across PVC-U and aluminium. The company is a leading fabricator of the market-leading Spectus PVC-U Vertical Slider System and they also manufacture a range of aluminium products from Cortizo and Smart aluminium systems. Steve comments: “We have a 20-year track record for manufacturing high-end specialist products. They are typically installed in the high value commercial and residential projects that are less affected by economic turbulence. And history shows that ‘heritage’ and high-end products tend to be protected during economic downturns.”
The second is the strict manufacturing protocols the company has in place. Steve says: “High end products mean you need to be laser-focused when it comes to product quality. There’s no room to cut corners and we never forget this. When you buy from Mercury you’re buying the reassurance of attention to detail you can rely on.”
Lastly, it’s investment in plant and people. The company is committed to continuous investment to ensure it has state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. Steve comments: “Technology is advancing the whole time and we keep our finger on the pulse to ensure we are using the best machines that deliver the best in quality. When you add in the expertise and experience of our staff, it’s a winning proposition.”
Mercury Glazing is in the middle of a four-year plan for growth. As these latest sales figures show, it remains well on course. It’s testament to a compelling offering that continues to make the company the go-to for specialist, feature-rich products.
