Artisan Windows buck the trend in housing market

While many in its market are feeling the negative effects of a downturn in the housing market, Artisan Windows is set to open the doors on its £80,000 showroom relaunch.

The Denbighshire-based company, which specialises in bespoke windows, doors and conservatories, has enjoyed robust sales over the last three years.

Employing a dozen staff, with eight vehicles, Artisan recognises it has weathered the recession better than most in its industry. It’s a fact that director Ian Gibson attributes to its customer focus.

“When I started Artisan 18 years ago, the double glazing industry didn’t have the best reputation and I set out to dispel that image. It set us on the path to focusing on quality and customer service. All of Artisan’s windows, doors and conservatories are bespoke, individually measured and tailored to fit a property.

“That focus continues to serve us well.”

Artisan will open the doors to its newly refurbished Denbigh showroom on 11th and 12th June. It is inviting clients past and present and architects to see the new products on offer. To celebrate its 18th year in business, it will also be offering significant discounts across its entire range over the weekend.

Artisan Windows director Garry Morgan said: “The recession has been a tough time for many in our field, but we are looking to the future with a good deal of optimism. This investment reflects that.

“We’ve hand picked these new products because we feel they are the best on offer in terms of technology, design and value for our clients.”

The investment will see the firm stock state-of-the-art A rated energy saving windows that are 67% more efficient than conventional double glazing, ‘Grand Designs’-style folding doors alongside sash timber windows with a very traditional feel.

It will become the sole supplier in North Wales and Cheshire for a number of key products such as windows and doors made of modern low maintenance materials which look the same as painted timber and feel like wood.

Artisan is also subtly refreshing its branding, to reflect the quality of products it has to offer. It has set up a Facebook page, to showcase its designs and the latest products on offer, and is investing significantly in its digital presence.

As part of the company’s continuing support for cancer charities, Artisan will be donating £1 to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd’s Colorectal Fund for every visitor to its Denbigh showroom on 11th and 12th June.
