As we see more and more companies struggling and subsequently closing their doors, in today's challenging economic climate, VEKA Group has reaffirmed its position as a stable systems company that continues to prepare for growth.
Sales Director Neil Evans explains: “It's been saddening to hear of companies ceasing to trade in recent weeks, not only within our industry. The fenestration sector as a whole has been facing a relatively flat market but I'm proud to say that VEKA Group has continued to invest and expand its capacity for growth in order to benefit customers old and new.
“Our ethos as a company has always been one of reliability, stability and support. ‘Safe' might not sound like a very exciting way to describe something, but in an industry awash with uncertainty I'm happy to say VEKA Group is exactly that; a safe pair of hands that customers can rely on. “To maintain our position as an industry leader, we have continued to grow despite (and throughout) a period of rising costs of raw materials. With our strong heritage and the support of our global family, we are always evolving and further strengthening our reputation for quality, service and trust.
“Throughout 2018, an incredible 99.3% of all our thousands of deliveries have been made on time and in full. To maintain these enviable results, we hold an average £10M of profile in stock or en-route at all times and in the run up to Brexit we'll be building our stocks even more extensively, thereby increasing our buffering capabilities. In conjunction with this, we'll also be supplementing stock levels of key raw materials used in our compound; which is mixed here on site in our industry-leading, purpose-built facility.
“Thanks to our extensive ongoing investment in people, plant and technology – which includes £5M this year alone – VEKA Group is more stable and committed to UK manufacturing than ever. We are also very excited about an imminent new product launch and new colour offering. “Next year sees the global VEKA Group celebrate its 50 th Anniversary and VEKA systems are the most specified in the world, yet our size does not make us complacent. We are absolutely
committed to seeing this family-owned business continue to grow, adapt and invest – in our future and that of our customers.”
