Judging by their preview page, U-Value and design are going to take centre stage of Origin’s announcements.
Origin have changed the way the industry operates lead times. They were one of the first companies to introduce flexible lead times, allowing customers to order their products and have them delivered in the matter of a couple of days. Expectations will be high from a company whose customer’s have come to expect the best.
As far as new products go, I see Synseal’s Warmcore as one of the most successful product launches in the industry for quite a while.
They’re not selling thousands per month, but then again, this is a product not based on volume, but on smaller, quality-focused quantities, being sold by the right installers, being made by the right fabricators.
Given the success of the door range, I would keep an eye on Synseal at the end of the year. The Warmcore family might be about to get bigger.
It’s great to see competition like this in the industry. It is what drive the UK sector forward. As we near the end of the year, questions will be asked of what we will see in 2016.
