TELEGRAPH CELEBRATES ‘BRITAIN’S BRIGHTEST BUSINESSES’


Composite door company, Door-Stop, installer Warmseal Windows and home improvement product supplier, Anglian Home Improvements are among 1,000 mid-sized companies identified by the Telegraph newspaper as ‘Britain’s brightest businesses’.


The Telegraph 1,000 is described as a ‘celebration of the 1,000 mid-sized companies which have weathered the economic storm and are set to be the foundation of the UK's recovery’.


The newspaper also polled more than a dozen membership organisations to come up with a snapshot of companies that collectively generate


more than £50bn in sales that have operations across the UK and that have all shown resilience during the recession and stuttering recovery.


Many companies recorded a tough trading year in 2009, reflecting the recession, but managed their way through and are now beginning to lodge much healthier accounts at Companies House.


Large companies responded to the Telegraph’s requests for recommendations of star performers in their supply chains.


Roger Hodson, UK managing director at D&B said: “D&B is proud to be contributing to The Telegraph’s initiative of identifying firms that


are not just surviving, but thriving in the current economic climate.


“It is often too easy to concentrate on the


negatives – increased business failures, reduced profits, weakened financial strength, lengthened payment terms – and forget that many companies in the UK have faced up to the challenges, and with nimble and brave thinking have put their businesses in a great position to seize the opportunities that exist out there.”

A CLASSICMATCH FOR CONSERVATORY OUTLET


Nottingham-based installer Classic Design Home Improvements has joined the Conservatory Outlet network of dealers, in what appears to be the perfect fabricator- installer partnership.


The deal not only brings together two forward thinking companies, but also two well know industry figures in the form of Jason Bamford, managing director of Classic Design, and Matthew Glover, MD of Conservatory Outlet.


Both men have spearheaded their respective company’s success by capitalising on the power of internet marketing, and the combined expertise of Conservatory Outlet and Classic Design will help the latter to cement its position as one of the East Midland’s leading installers.


Classic Design Home Improvements will fly the Conservatory Outlet flag throughout Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire whilst retaining its own established and trusted identity. The fabricator’s bolt-on brand – widely recognised by UK homeowners - is designed to co-exist with that


of its regional installers and offer them more marketing potential and competitive advantage.


Classic Design will also receive, free of charge, the leads generated by Conservatory Outlet’s national online marketing, which will supplement the enquiries generated by its own regional promotion.


What’s more, Conservatory Outlet can offer Classic Design a whole host of market- leading products such as Energy Saving Trust Recommended windows, triple glazed windows with a U-value of just 1.0W/m².K, and Solidor timber core composite doors.


Commenting on the partnership, Jason Bamford said: “The Conservatory Outlet offering is not


just about the products, or the marketing support. It’s about the whole package which combines to help installers win more business. It’s rare to find a fabricator that understands the needs of installers like Conservatory Outlet does. The support provided, and the success it brings, is indicative of the wealth of retail experience that exists throughout the Conservatory Outlet network.”


Matthew Glover added: “Although unrivalled, the sales and marketing support we provide is only beneficial to installers that embrace the Conservatory Outlet ethos. I’m delighted to welcome Jason and Classic Design Home Improvements to the network because I know that they will do this, and much more, to further their success in the East Midlands.”
