Deceuninck’s sales continue to surge and are 15% up year-to-date. May’s sales were the highest ever recorded, a staggering 22% up on May 2017.
Managing Director Rob McGlennon says the company’s sustained growth is down to Deceuninck’s lead on colour and #BestInClass products, like the award-winning Heritage Flush Sash. Deceuninck has near-perfect delivery scores too, with 99% OTIF (On Time In Full) recorded for both April and May, a remarkable achievement given Deceuninck’s extensive colour from stock range.
Rob says: “Sales have skyrocketed in the first six months of 2018 while many in the market have slipped back, and we’re confident we will continue to grow fast. It’s down to giving our customers the products and service to stand out and sell more. Our Heritage Flush Sash is a real star and now accounts for 22% of our total sash sales. Remarkably, these are additional sales for Deceuninck, and it’s a similar story for our customers.
“Colour is a profitable and fast-growing sector, so we offer 26 colourways from stock with matching cills, trims and ancillaries. We also have a further 24 colourways available on short lead times, bringing the total colourways to 50. To help customers capitalise on colour even more we’re planning to supply 30 colourways from stock, and we’re also working on cutting lead times on the remaining colourways. Watch this space!
“Product is only half the story – our customers know they can rely on Deceuninck to deliver on time and in full, every time. Our delivery record is 99% OTIF for the second month in a row – even more remarkable given the number of in-stock colours across our full product range, including all cills, trims and ancillaries.”
Deceuninck also reports strong growth across its Heritage Collection, which includes Sculptured and Chamfered systems and Slider24+, Deceuninck’s new sliding patio door.
