Modplan reports reassuring levels of demand across its ranges

Leading VEKA trade fabricator Modplan has reported strong levels of demand across its product ranges following their lockdown return. Heidi Sachs, Managing Director of Newport-based Modplan said: “Since we reopened our manufacturing business, I’m delighted to say we are seeing very healthy order levels across all products groups that are growing all the time.”

Heidi says while sales have been positive across the board, their conservatory roof range has been especially popular. She comments: “Our customers are commenting that many homeowners see home working as here to stay. They’re therefore looking to maximise living and working space, so want to make their conservatory a year-round room. We have a comprehensive range of conservatory roofs to suit all styles and budgets, so we’ve got an excellent offering in this area.”

While delighted with new order levels, Heidi is also mindful of the new normal. “As every manufacturing business knows, operating with social distancing in place has an impact on lead times. Our staff are working above and beyond to fulfil orders and follow all social distancing protocols and we owe them a huge thank you. But inevitably, there has been an impact on lead times and our customers have been extremely patient because they know everyone is in the same boat. I’d like to thank each and every one of them for their understanding.”

Heidi concludes: “We are living in unprecedented times and it’s great to see everyone pulling together to keep each other safe. I’m also very pleased to be reporting positive sales levels and my hope is that this is a reassuring sign for the sector as we emerge into the new normal.”
