Easy-Trim Roto created
Easy-Trim Roofing and Construction Products Limited has acquired the UK trading business of Roto Roof Windows.
Following the acquisition, which took effect on the 1st December 2017, the Roto Roof UK business will become a new division of Easy-Trim and will be known as Easy-Trim Roto.
Easy-Trim Roto will continue to operate the existing Roto Roof Windows (UK) sales office and training centre in Rugby. Distribution operations meanwhile will be relocated to Easy-Trim’s warehouse in Lancashire enabling customers to benefit from greater ex-stock availability and reduced order lead times.
Easy-Trim Roto will also continue to employ existing Roto manufacturing facilities in Germany whilst it develops its own UK-based production plant, which is expected to open in 2020.
The full Roto Roof Window range will continue to be available with a new selection of Easy-Trim Roto windows due to be introduced in March 2018.
Customers looking to order products should now do so with Easy-Trim either through their existing Easy-Trim area sales managers or by using the following contact details:
Business Development Manager
Mobile: 07827 332814
Nichola Bram Sales Office Manager
Tel: 01788 5586 03
For any deliveries made on or after the 1st December, payment should be made to Easy-Trim. Payment for any deliveries made prior to this date should be paid to Roto Roof Windows and Hardware Limited as normal.
The acquisition does not affect the Roto Hardware business (FTT) which continues to trade as a separate entity.
Commenting on the acquisition, Easy-Trim managing director, Jamie Govier, said “Roto manufactures roof windows to the highest standards and the company’s product quality, levels of support and product warranties lead the market.
“There is enormous synergy between our operations and our approach, and Roto’s Roof Windows UK operation fits in exceptionally well with Easy-Trim’s existing business model and sales channels.
“We’re delighted to welcome both new customers and colleagues alike to the wider Easy-Trim family. We would also like to thank existing Roto Roof Windows customers for their continued loyalty over the years and to assure them that the service, quality and attention to detail they’ve come to expect will not just continue - but go from strength to strength.”
