Post-Lockdown Bloom For Roseview

Heritage window manufacturer Roseview Windows has experienced a return to work boost with sales since May rising rapidly.

Current forecasts by the firm predict that the number of windows Roseview manufactures this year will at least equal the total for 2019, despite having missed almost two months due to industry lockdown.

The challenges of well-documented supply chain issues currently affecting the whole industry mean that many companies are feeling the pressure as lead times are extended. Roseview has responded by sourcing alternative suppliers and overstocking on components wherever possible. The company has also invested heavily and increased recruitment to help reduce the impact on their customers.

The window industry has been one of the unexpected success stories of this extraordinary year. The national lockdown forced people to spend more time in their home, which sparked heavy investment in home improvement. Money normally spent on luxuries such as holidays has instead been invested in homes, in preparation for the winter months.



Roseview is continuing its expansion plan by recently acquiring a fifth factory to cope with increased demand and growth. There has also been significant investment in plant and machinery including a completely new machining centre, with more planned for the future. The company has also expanded its workforce - employing 20 new fabricators across all sites with further appointments throughout the business.


 “Under very challenging circumstances, Roseview has enjoyed great success since returning from lockdown. The current home improvement boom has led to unexpected levels of window orders, meaning demand has been strong for our Rose Collection sash windows, especially Ultimate Rose.”

Unpredictable times

“I would like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during these unpredictable times. We felt it was important to be open and transparent with our customers about extended lead times and supply chain issues, so we’ve been communicating regularly," continues Roseview's Burrells. "I would also like to thank our incredible team here at Roseview who have gone above and beyond to help meet our customers’ needs and continue to do what we do best - manufacturing exceptional sash windows. Moving forward we have further exciting expansion plans and the launch of our latest version of our Ultimate Rose sash window.”
