Clearwood UK pushes ahead



Cornish timber window and door manufacturer Clearwood UK believes 2009 is set to be one of its best ever years with the launch of a new Cornish-inspired range of contemporary windows and doors, coming on the back of record sales figures.

The Redruth-based manufacturer believes its latest offering – the Urbane range – will help it develop business in new markets thanks to its distinctive styling.

Despite only being launched at the end of July, interest in the range from architects across the UK is already extremely positive according to Clearwood UK with orders already coming in and increasing.

According to Clearwood UK sales manager Jay Pengelly, the contemporary styling of the new products in the Urbane range, which are named after the Cornish for Earth, Water, Sky, Fire and Glass, is already opening up a host of new business opportunities – in both the new build and refurbishment markets.

He said: “We are absolutely delighted with the impact that the Urbane range has already had with architects across the UK who have really responded positively to the new styling. Our existing ranges have been more traditional in design but we saw an opportunity to move into a new area of the timber window and doors market and the Urbane range is the result of that.

“It has all of the hallmarks of our existing Clearwood UK products, manufactured using engineered larch, with high performance paint coatings and the very latest locking systems, but from a design perspective takes us in a completely new direction, even down to the architecturally designed door and window ironmongery.

“While it is very early days for the new range the initial signs are very optimistic and we think the Urbane collection will be a significant one for us in the coming months and years.”

The launch of the new range comes on the back of an extremely successful 2009 so far for Clearwood UK, with significant contract gains in both the public and private sectors, and a growing order book from clients across the UK.
