Spectus Defies Downturn With Strong Growth In Commercial Sector

Published: 1st August 2009

Spectus Windows, the producer of high-quality extrusion products for the manufacture of PVC-u window and door systems, has revealed a strong start to the second half of 2009, with higher than predicted client growth, despite a struggling market. Since its take-over by My House Group in February 2009, the Macclesfield-based manufacturer has gone from strength to strength with a number of high-profile commercial sector projects. These range from the provision of window systems for internationally renowned establishments such as Manchester University (through Mercury Glazing), to securing approved product status with national house builder Gladedale (via JF Bodman and Sons). Spectus Windows has also been specified for over 1,000 properties belonging to East Ayrshire and Lancashire County Council (through Premier Frames UK) and its commercial projects portfolio continues to gather momentum. Paul McLoughlin, commercial director of My House Group, comments: "When My House Group acquired Spectus in February this year, our initial assessment was that it is a business built on solid foundations an unrivalled portfolio of high quality products and a talented workforce with a passion for the industry. Spectus has a strong heritage in the commercial sector, so our first task was to look for ways to improve the customer experience yet further, by increasing efficiency throughout the business, without compromising our unrivalled quality. With a successful programme of investment underway, our client base is enjoying reduced lead times and increased availability. We continue to strive to deliver a world-class service for our partners making Spectus an attractive prospect for new and existing customers alike. While the economy continues to provide a challenging operating environment for our business, Spectus’ recent success shows no sign of waning and we look toward the next six months with confidence.” To find out more about Spectus Window Systems, visit www.spectus.co.uk or call 01625 420400.
