TuffX Processed Glass Ltd strides into 2015 in a very strong trading position with both the Conservatory Roof sector and Glass Processing Division building on positive results from last year.
The Ambience Roof Glass range increased its customer base nationally by 20% over 2014, which brought a 26% sales increase by comparison to the previous year’s trading figures. Equally the glass processing division made strong headway in the market, improving its customer base by 25% and yielding a 30% increased sales figure.
The flexibility and reliability of the company throughout last year proved a winning formula with existing customers whilst also attracting new business. Customers have been especially impressed by the high standard of customer service including marketing support tools and on-site national deliveries with the newly expanded fleet.
For the Knowsley based specialist glass producer, quality and performance standards remain priorities, which is a philosophy that is reinforced across both brands. Management consider that commitment to customer satisfaction continues to place the company as a leader in the processed glass manufacturing sector, with demand for the range already increasing during the early part of 2015.
Many of the company’s commercial and architectural customers undertake prestigious projects providing bespoke solutions for prominent clients nationwide. As such they demand only the best, relying upon the competence and professionalism of the entire TuffX team from ordering through to manufacturing and delivery.
The company’s ability to manufacture toughened safety glass products up to 25mm thick as well as an advanced range of thermally efficient glass roofing products, all to the highest industry standards, stems from substantial investment in modern machinery. This outlay in automation enables the company to produce products in a more improved timescale, to meet customer needs.
As a company, TuffX produces a number of ranges, offering customers a wide variety of aesthetic applications including frameless glass doors, balustrades and infill panels, as well as bespoke glass flooring, stairtreads and glass cladding. A bespoke option is also available for individual high specification projects.
The Ambience range of conservatory glass roofing offers installers the broadest choice of thermally efficient, solar controlled, self-cleaning roof glass on the UK market today. Products which have proved particularly popular with customers include the Ambi-Aqua and Ambi-Blue colour tint options. These superior glass roofing products have exceptional heat reflection capabilities helping to reduce the whole internal conservatory temperature.
With conservatory design becoming ever more dynamic, since launching the Ambi-Max glass roof option, the company can supply units to a maximum projection of 4000mm which eliminates the inherent problems associated with traditional muntin bars and enables much larger, higher performance roofs to be built.
Latterly, the Ambi-Sunshade Blue option has been added to the Ambience range which is the best performing solar controlled glass in the portfolio, offering staggering solar properties of up to 80% solar Heat Reflection and a further reduction in glare.
TuffX products have been incorporated into many newly designed projects which require exceptional performance, durability and stunning aesthetic finishes including impressive penthouses with walled glazing as well as gently curving walls with balconies and glazed roofs.
Manufacturing to the highest industry standards gives customers complete peace of mind in respect of product reliability, which combined with the excellent TuffX support services, ensures that their own solid reputations for excellence can be maintained.
As recognised specialists in glass processing TuffX is regularly chosen by leading architects to supply products for prestigious contracts nationally including 10-25mm toughened glass, as well as Screenprinted, Heatsoaked and toughened laminated glass up to 39.5mm
Andy Hayes, Sales Manager comments, “Over the years the company has established good working relationships with its customers and they know that they can rely on us as a team when it counts. Our ranges are competitively priced and customer satisfaction remains a priority, with our high industry standards and professional reputation being key to customers choosing TuffX as their preferred supplier.”
He concludes, “The TuffX brand continues to reflect lasting quality combined with stunning designs at realistic prices.
We have many more prestigious projects in the pipeline and our years of experience in both conservatory glass roofing and toughened safety glass manufacturing reflects well on our customers. TuffX provides the right solutions that are guaranteed to last and that make a visually impressive overall finish.”
