Among the new additions to its Ballymena facility in Northern Ireland is a waterjet cutter with a 3m by 2m bed, which became the company’s first foray into this type of technology when it was purchased in June.

Selling Ultraroof In ‘The New Normal’

 

When the first lockdown came in back in March, Ultraframe quickly reacted by providing its customers with a Lockdown Toolkit – an armoury of tools to help customers sell Ultraframe products online.

This time last year, Ultraroof was awarded the G19 Customer Care Initiative of the Year Award for the outstanding support package available to Ultraroof users, and this package has continued to be enhanced since then, with items from the Lockdown Toolkit and more.

A trusted German partner for KÖMMERLING, Kaspari GmbH, recently completed a renovation for Middle School Vulkaneifel in the Ulmen community, Eifel region using the PremiSlide and System 76 tilt and turn product platforms.
