Reviews of Anglian Windows  from the double glazing forum

Anglian Windows >

Anglian Home Improvements are probably the biggest company in the home improvements market. They started off just selling windows (AKA Anglian Windows) but now do loads of products like conservatories, guttering, driveways and even garage conversions.





   
 
Company name: Anglian Windows
Trading Names: Anglian Home Improvements
Date Established: 1966 (43 years)
Estimated Turnover: £300m
Products: Windows, Conservatories, Doors, Roof Products, Garage conversions, Garage doors, Driveways
Where they sell: Nationwide
Website address: www.anglianhome.co.uk
Company History: Dec 15th, 2010
Anglian Home Improvements came into being in 1966 as “Anglian Windows”. Norwich entrepreneur George Williams founded the company. Three years later he began attracting customers by launching a show room for his products- a relative novelty at the time. Anglian Windows would eventually go on to become one of the UK’s largest suppliers of double glazing and home improvements.It would employ over 5,000 staff, fit over 500,000 products every year and a build a name recognised throughout the industry.

The business was acquired by British Electric Traction in 1984 for the sum of £30 million. From here Anglian Windows became Anglian Home Improvements, branching out from windows to products such as conservatories, doors and roofing.

Despite the companies impressive growth it has hit problems from time to time. The recession at the end of the 80s hit them hard, eventually leading to the necessity for a management buyout in 1991. The step, though desperate, was effective, and the company returned to private hands in 2000 when it was bought out by investment group Alchemy Partners.

The company performed solidly for most of the 2000s, boasting strong profits and sales. It was around this time that Anglian Home Improvements became a founding member of FENSA a government, a self-regulatory body for the double-glazing industry.

However when the economic crash hit in 2007 Anglian was among the companies to be hit hard. As the construction industry stalled and consumer spending dropped off the firm was forced to close one of its manufacturing plants and two depots. In 2008 a consortium of banks took over the company after it ran into debt trouble.
After the banks took over the company underwent a £30 million cost cutting drive that involved a major restructuring and the loss of almost 1,000 jobs. In 2008/09 the company suffered a £7 million loss, even after cutting its work force to only 2,056 staff. The following year George Williams, still a well-known figure in the glazing industry, passed away.

By the end of 2010 things began to look up for Anglian Home Improvements. The company posted strong results for the first part of the year, seeing a rise of 70% in its net income even in the face of falling revenue.

From there pre-tax profits climbed to £11.3 million, an improvement on the £6.2 million it brought in the previous year. Current opinion is that Anglian has survived the worst of the recession and the company is expected to position itself well in the post-recession market.

Over the years Anglian Home Improvements has engaged in a number of activities as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility to both its home city of Norwich and further afield. The firm has made donations to groups including the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Comic Relief, the World Cancer Research Fund, Broadland High School and the Race for Life.

Today the company has a turnover of £225 million a year and employs in the region of 2,500 staff, approximately 1,000 of which are based at its Norwich head office and main factory. However there are sites across the company where Anglian Home Improvements bases its sales and installation staff.  There are currently 200 Anglian showrooms, show sites and installation centres across the country. The company also makes a heavy use of staff on a self employed basis, such as foot canvassers, installers and sales reps.

The company now offers double-glazing, including the new heat-generating EcoGain windows, conservatories, patios, driveways, doors and rooftrim. Anglian Home Improvements continues to build on its position, aiming to dominate the glazing and home improvements sectors of the market.

New survey claims household budgeting out the window when it comes to energy
According to a new survey by Anglian Home Improvements, despite the fact that two thirds of British consumers think they are paying too much on their energy bills, many people are still carelessly wasting huge amounts of energy and heat.

75% of the 2,040 British adults questioned in the survey reported that they are frustrated by the year-on-year increase in energy costs. However, 13% admitted that they have the heating on when they are not in the house and the same number confessed to opening windows while the heating was on. 16% of those questioned by the survey said that they keep a window open for ventilation all year round. Another 10% said they walked around the house in a t-shirt, and one in twenty even kept the heating on all year round.

Melanie McDonald, Head of Marketing and Communications at Anglian Home Improvements, said, “The study reveals that energy prices remain a concern for most British homeowners, yet as a nation we are wasting energy in ways that could so easily be fixed. A few simple changes could not only make our homes more energy efficient but also save us money and reduce our carbon footprint. As we head into the colder months, now is the ideal time to think about ways to keep our homes and families warm throughout the winter.”

Window scrappage scheme launched by Anglian Home Improvements
A new window scrappage scheme has been introduced by Anglian Home Improvements. The new scheme will enable homeowners to improve their homes’ energy efficiency and receive up to £3,000 off their next upgrade to energy saving windows.

The new scheme, which was launched on 2nd October 2013, allows old windows to be traded in for money off Anglian’s A-rated energy saving EcoGain windows. These windows keep draughts out while still trapping sunlight that will help heat people’s homes and bring their energy bills down. The advanced technology behind Anglian’s EcoGain windows will make them some of the most thermally efficient double glazed windows on the market.

Anglian says the scheme will run through October and November. It will give homeowners a chance to upgrade their windows before the worst of the winter. Anglians says the discount will be greater, the more windows customers are able to scrap.

Melanie McDonald, Head of Marketing and Communications at Anglian Home Improvements, said, “Recent figures released by the Department of Energy and Climate Change showed that domestic electricity and gas prices rose by more than 8% in the year to July 2013. With price hikes like these becoming the norm, and with the longer, colder winters we’ve been having in recent years, it’s an ideal time to invest in improving the energy efficiency of the home to keep the cold out and the bills in check.”

Anglian launches new range of aluminium windows and doors
Angliah Home Improvements have launched a new range of aluminium windows and doors that they say offer “a sleek, modern and long-lasting finish.”

The new collection of aluminium doors and windows features a wide range of styles that includes casement windows, bi-fold doors and sliding patio doors. The new doors and windows will be available in any RAL colour and a polyester powder coated finish gives the windows and doors a durable finish with a “just painted” look.
Click here to read full article, and to post your own comments


Customers will be able to personalise their choices thanks to the dual colour and split colour finishes available. The dual colours allow the inside of the window to be one colour and the outside another, while the split colours let customers select one colour for the frame and another for the casement. It’s also possible to combine the two, giving customers the widest possible range of colour choices.
Anglian has noted that aluminium windows and doors are becoming increasingly popular, something they attribute to their “sophisticated, slimline look” which has become a regular feature on recent home improvement shows such as Grand Designs, as well as the convenience of a product that is low maintenance and does not rot, rust or warp.

Beat the relentless fuel price hikes with an energy efficient home
Anglian Home Improvements is drawing consumers’ attention to the importance of keeping the cold at bay as energy bills increase during the winter. According to figures release by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), covering energy trends and prices over the past year, domestic electricity prices have risen by 8.1% between July 2012 and July 2013, while at the same time domestic gas prices have increased by 8.5%.

With household budgets being squeezed by rising food and petrol prices on food, as well as many other essentials, at a time when salaries are often remaining at a standstill, it’s more important than ever to save money where possible.
Click here to read full article, and to post your own comments


However, Anglian Home Improvements has recommended that there are lots of things consumers can do to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, all of which will help to keep the fuel bills down. Some of these recommendations are instant fixes, including insulating the loft and using draught excluders, but Anglian has also said that it is worth thinking about longer-term investments wherever it is possible. These investments will provide benefits for years to come as energy prices continue to increase.

Among the recommendations Anglian makes are energy saving windows such as Anglian’s A rated EcoGain windows that can help to heat the home.

Melanie McDonald, Head of Marketing and Communications at Anglian Home Improvements, says, “Energy prices are escalating at such a tremendous rate, so it’s well worth thinking about investing in new energy efficient windows and doors in order to minimise energy consumption and maximise the benefit over the long-term. What's more, the government’s Green Deal scheme enables homeowners to make energy saving improvements such as installing energy efficient double glazing without paying all the costs up-front, so it’s a win-win situation all round.”

• Use simply use tepid water to mist plants in the morning during the growing season.

As Brits cut back on spending, home improvements are still a priority
According to Anglian Home Improvements says that although official figures say people are cutting back on food shopping and expensive holidays, one in four people will carry out several improvements to their property a year.

The figures show that one in eight people have spent £5,000 or more on home improvements in the last couple of years, with the average spend coming in at £2,706. A large part of the reason for this spending is a desire to keep their house attractive, with a fifth of people saying their main motivation is not to be outdone by the house next door.

New study shows Britain isn’t switched on to energy saving
Anglian Home Improvements says that, despite rising fuel costs, a new study is showing that British people aren’t motivated enough to save energy. While 94% of people asked say they want to become more energy efficient, only 37% would currently describe themselves as such. Despite rising energy prices 40% of people admit to leaving the heating on all day, and one in three say they leave doors and windows open when the central heating is on. Even more than that, an astonishing two thirds of those asked admitted to leaving their telly on when they aren’t in the room, while almost half left the TV in standby mode overnight.

Anglian recommends bringing your garden indoors this winter
Anglian Home Improvements is suggesting its customers bring their garden indoors for the winter by filling their conservatory with a selection of lush, tropical indoor plants. Taking its lead from Gardeners’ World TV presenter Carol Klein, Anglian is suggesting customers grow Mediterranean plants such olives, oranges and lemons, as well as chillies and fig plants.

Klein says, “Chillies look fabulous, with their red, orange, yellow – even purple – fruits dangling like Christmas baubles, and they make very decorative houseplants as long as they can get enough light, but I grow them because I have come to love to eat the fruits.”
