Leading trade fabricator Modplan has been announced as the joint winner of the Conservatory Roof Fabricator category at the National Fenestration Awards 2021.
Speaking of the win, Heidi Sachs, Managing Director of Modplan, said: “We are thrilled to have won this award. It’s particularly relevant as it was voted for solely by the industry and I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for Modplan. It has been an extremely busy year for everyone in the industry, so taking time out of busy schedules to vote for us, is a true vote of support. Congratulations also goes to our fellow winner, Premier Roof Systems.”
The award concludes a successful year for Newport-based Modplan which has seen a sharp rise in demand for products, particularly in conservatory roofs, in response to consumer demand. Heidi said: “The huge spike in demand for conservatory roofs is not totally surprising as consumers are now scrutinising their living spaces more than ever before. As a result, the number of solid retrofit roofs and new build conservatory extensions has risen dramatically as witnessed by our record sales.”
As a result of the increase in demand, Modplan has made several strategic investments throughout 2021, which has opened up new opportunities and provided additional capacity to support its long-term growth efforts. Heidi said: “Our recent investments in our infrastructure, including our dedicated roof plant, have given us outstanding product quality and further improved our manufacturing efficiencies. We now operate from a total manufacturing space of 165,000 sqft which ensures that we can continue to offer the best in product quality with exceptional manufacturing efficiencies for our customers.”
Modplan manufactures a complete range of conservatory roofs, so installers can maintain a diverse product portfolio. Products include the popular Leka Solid roof, Leka orangery roof and Leka Xi modular system. Also available is the Vertex roof which offers a one-piece peripheral main beam with integral gutter and can be supplied with a choice of polycarbonate or glass options. And the Wendland range and LivinRoof by Ultraframe completes an impressive conservatory roof offering.
Heidi concludes: “We are obviously delighted to have picked up this award. It is clear recognition of the commitment and hard work we have put into our conservatory roof offer to deliver the best for our customers. As a business, we are never complacent and that has ensured we have remained a strong and reliable partner for nearly five decades. It’s why this win means so much to the team.”
