The record-breaking year of sales can largely be attributed to the service they have provided, even when faced with the most exceptional circumstances. Secureroll garage door customers have long appreciated the 2 week turnaround on offer. Following a brief pause in production in March/April, it was the Aluroll team’s aim to provide a service which minimised the negative impact of COVID-19 on installers’ own businesses. They surpassed expectations by consistently maintaining their 2 week lead time throughout. This was achieved through a rapid response to the developing situation in the pandemic’s early days, followed by constantly adapting to the changing circumstances which followed. Production resumed with an increased schedule and additional shifts to meet customer demands. The fact that Aluroll is a completely independent company provided the ability to carefully manage stock levels through close relationships with multiple component suppliers. Barry Mahon, Production Director, said: “We’ve always embraced a challenge here at Aluroll, and that’s exactly how we’ve approached the COVID-19 situation this year. “Limiting the negative impact on our customers has been at the forefront of all of our decisions, and our dynamic response to the developing situation certainly set the groundwork for the very successful year, in terms of both customer satisfaction and door sales”. Months on from the initial factory shutdown, Aluroll is still achieving 2 week lead times on roller garage doors, winning over the support of hundreds of trade installers in the process, including lots of new business.
