Premier growth

One of K2 Conservatories newest fabricator, Premier Conservatory Supplies, based in Bolton and run by Peter Gray, is showing no sign of slowing down its growth.

Having brought sales to a level that most fabricators would be pleased to achieve after several years in operation Peter wanted to gain a further edge that would allow him to carry on growing the business nationwide.

Andrew Buglass was invited to join the company as National Sales Manager. With an extensive background in the conservatory industry (including Newdawn Conservatories and Quantal), and as an orangery specialist (Rapid Fit), Andrew was very keen to work with a company that offered a product that would really stand out from the competition.

So when the offer came from Premier, the decision was an easy one to make, as Andrew comments: “I knew from my previous experiences that the homeowner market is after innovative products, with true added value. This means moving away from the standard white PVC conservatories and offering colours, aluminium cappings, and most importantly orangeries.

As a K2 fabricator Premier Conservatories Supplies offers everything that will allow a retailer to promote a high-end product range, something that current consumer trends show is the answer to generating enquiries and sales.”

Peter Gray adds: “I am extremely pleased that Andrew accepted our offer to join Premier. His presence is already making an impact to the growth of the company which must be attributed to his vast experience in the industry”

Andrew is based in the North East from where he covers the whole of mainland Britain. He can be reached on 07535936416 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Synseal invests in K2 site to bring arches and curves to its customers

Synseal’s K2 production facility has received a substantial investment within days of it becoming a part of Synseal Extrusions Ltd, confirming intentions for continued growth.

David Leng, Synseal Chief Executive, has announced the creation of a profile bending facility within K2’s Blackburn manufacturing site to enable the production of arched top and other curved window styles. This will speed up the production of Synseal arched top vertical sliders and will bend profile for fabricators of both Synseal and other profiles. The new facility will also produce ‘starburst’ style gable ends for Synseal and K2 customers and will supply them with the glass to suit, reducing complexity, cost, and lead times for customers.

The installation includes the latest machinery and equipment to enable fabrication of these time-consuming and complicated pieces. The intention is to enable the company’s customers to improve their lead times by ordering roof, gable and glass all at the same time.

“This is a natural progression for Synseal,” explained David Leng. “It continues our strategy of offering a wider choice of products from within the Synseal group thus ensuring consistent quality throughout, reducing both prices, the number of suppliers and simplifying the supply chain for our customers. We want to take responsibility for the entire roof and make it easy for our customers to sell a great product on a short lead time, removing all worries about getting several suppliers to coordinate sizes, deliveries, and prices. It takes advantage of the excellent facilities we have at K2 and confirms our intention to maintain and develop the K2 and Celsius brands, as well as the other related assets we acquired recently,” added David.

Synseal Acquires K2 Brands and Assets

Synseal Extrusions Ltd has today acquired the assets of K2 Conservatories Ltd for an undisclosed sum.

David Leng, CEO of Synseal said: “The trading brands of Celsius Glass and K2 are well respected and successful. Brand loyalty is something we are keen to maintain and we will continue to invest in them to secure future growth.

This is an important addition to our launch earlier in the year of Global Glasstm and means we can now be highly efficient in the production of both roof and window glass, in turn helping our customers to compete more effectively.

The business will continue to trade with the current sales structure and from the existing site. I am delighted that Sally Fielding will remain with the business to ensure a smooth transition and to help to retain and develop the key brand values”.

Sally Fielding commented “K2 has been part of my life for many years and I am confident that Synseal will retain the K2 brand identity through its loyal network of customers. I believe that our existing and new customers will enjoy tremendous benefits through the investment and support of Synseal”.

Enquiries for K2 roofs and Celsius Glass should continue to be directed to existing contacts.
