Specialist fabricator Bison Frames is celebrating a strong start to 2014: sales are up 40% on the same period last year. Mark Tetley, Bison’s Managing Director said, “We are delighted with these results, which we attribute to a strong and innovative portfolio of value-added products and an excellent range of back-up services.”
One of the reasons for Bison’s strong growth is the Genesis sliding sash window, which has taken the market by storm. The window is a result of extensive research and development to take the vertical slider to a whole new level of authenticity. The Genesis window has a truly traditional appearance thanks to its jointed (not welded) frame and sash and the use of period hardware and a complete range of heritage finishes. The window has achieved the seemingly impossible – acceptance for use on Grade II listed buildings and in Conservation Areas – and has attracted a great deal of interest, not to mention sales, as a result.
The latest addition to the Bison range is the New Wave Swing and Slide Door, which offers a whole new concept in slide and swing door systems. Each door moves and locates independently, giving the customer the option of opening the door in any position they choose so that it can be utilised as a true partition. The door also offers striking beauty and the cleanest sightlines on the market thanks to virtually no visible hardware. Its innovation looks set to boost Bison figures still further over the coming months.
Alongside the Genesis and New Wave sit a wealth of other products including reversible windows, tilt and turns, casements, standard vertical sliders, bi-folds, French doors, patio doors and composite doors. Together the range offers a complete mix of core and value-added portfolio products, making Bison a strong choice of fabrication partner.
At a time when homeowners are becoming more discerning, Bison can help installers deliver what’s required. Backed up with exemplary service and support, it’s hardly surprising that sales have been so strong.
