Demand for superior quality Screenline integral blinds by Pellini has soared in the UK in the past year with the country’s largest supplier Morley Glass reporting a 50% year-on-year increase in sales volumes.
Morley Glass partners closely with Italian company Pellini and it is now the UK’s largest manufacturer of the market-leading Screenline integral blind systems which go into all its Uni-Blinds® products. Significant increase in demand from existing customers, coupled with an influx of new customers over the past 12-24 months, has pushed up output of its Uni-Blinds® integral blinds from an average of 2,500 units a week to around 3,500.
This growth in volumes was targeted by Morley Glass and set out in its five-year plan back in 2016 as it saw huge potential to introduce the concept of integral blinds to more and more homeowners, driven by an appetite for more privacy, sun shading and a comfortable living and working environment. That was a key reason why Morley Glass invested in moving to its current 50,000 sq. ft site which offered plenty of capacity to grow when it first made the move.
Ian Short, Morley Glass MD said: “Despite the challenges of the pandemic, which saw our production lines at a standstill for six weeks in 2020, the team has pulled out all the stops to exceed our target output for Pellini blinds production. The booming demand reflects the increased demand from homeowners, many of whom are investing in home improvements like never before – surprising many in the industry in the process!”
To accommodate the increased output of Pellini’s Screenline integral blind units, Morley Glass has also expanded its team with five new members of staff and added three extra vans to its delivery fleet. These steps are part of Morley Glass’s commitment to investing in its high-quality manufacturing processes, marketing, customer service and technical support, ensuring its customers benefit from the best quality products and service.
A close working relationship with Screenline manufacturer Pelini plays a key role in the success of Uni-Blinds®. Pellini is an Italian company which is a global leader in its field who partner with Morley Glass to provide UK customers with access to premium quality integral blinds for all kinds of residential and commercial projects under the Uni-Blinds® brand.
With manual, solar and motorised versions available, the Uni-Blinds® range provides the widest choice of integral blinds in either double or triple glazed units. The products are backed by comprehensive technical support from Morley Glass, the only UK supplier of integral blinds to have dedicated customer support engineers on the road.
Morley Glass completes its service through its vast stocks of Screenline system spare parts, which is the largest in Europe thanks to its close partnership with Pellini, with £1 million of Screenline components held in stock and available within 24 hours.
