Respected rooflight experts Roof Maker have been shortlisted for Fabricator of the Year, the most sought-after category in the prestigious G17 Awards.

Since being bought by private equity group Next Wave Partners LLP in November 2016, the Roof Maker workforce has grown rapidly, rising from around 59 to 90 employees, as the firm has spent £250k in rapidly expanding its presence in the trade sector.

Another £100k has gone into research and development, producing two new cutting-edge products – O-Lite, a distinctive circular roof light, and LuxLite, the highest-specification roof light currently available for pitched roofs.

“It’s great for us to be recognised in this way,” commented Roof Maker CEO Paul Mildenstein. “We’ve been delighted with our performance over the last twelve months – we’ve seen a huge increase in turnover, driven by some extremely successful new products. But we’ve also got big ambitions for the future.

“We want to challenge the idea that all roof light products are the same – that a roof window is essentially just a roof window. Over years of intensive investment and product development, we’ve built a portfolio of best-in-class natural light solutions with minimalistic design, energy efficiency and all-round performance that stand them out from the crowd – but in the months and years ahead, we want to push boundaries even further.

“If you’re interested in joining us on that journey – and benefitting from the sort of stylish, bespoke home improvement products perfectly positioned to help installers capitalise at the high end of the market – don’t hesitate to get in touch to learn more about what becoming a Roof Maker trade partner can do for your business.”

Triple-glazed, Argon-filled, and offering U-values as low as 0.6 (good enough to meet the demanding Passivhaus standard) Roof Maker’s new generation of roof lights offer exceptional thermal efficiency. Together with their toughened glass and 20-year transferable guarantee – twice the industry standard – it’s a level of performance that marks them out as truly best-in-class.
