Swisspacer’s sales continue to soar and are globally ahead of budget. Sales for the UK and Ireland are also well ahead of target as increasing numbers of new customers adopt Swisspacer’s leading warm edge spacer, while existing customers increase production.
The UK and Ireland’s share of Swisspacer’s total sales has grown dramatically. In 2009 (to date) it accounts for 18% of much increased global sales. New customers in the UK include DB Glass, Uniglaze2, Clayton Glass, Cristal Glass and Glazing (Leicester) Ltd. Many new customers are coming on board via its distributors – DGS/Solutions UK, Magden and National Seal.
Managing director, Matthias Meissner, said: “We’re delighted with sales to date and see momentum continuing to build throughout the year. Our growth is attributed to sealed unit manufacturers and fabricators realising the benefits of using Swisspacer as their warm edge spacer. It offers top performance without the need for investment or disruption in manufacture.”
Kathryn Dalgleish, marketing and sales manager for the UK and Ireland, said: “The market for window energy ratings is now growing rapidly. Sealed unit manufacturers want a spacer bar which differentiates them from the competition and helps them provide the best sealed units to fabricators who want to achieve the best window energy ratings without fuss or doubt. We’re seeing an increasing demand for ‘A’ ratings and Swisspacer is a crucial factor in achieving this.”
