Opening its doors in 1990 in the midst of the double glazing boom, local businessman Kenneth Taylor identified a significant gap in the market and quickly capitalised on it. Identifying a distinct lack of quality uPVC window and door products in the local area, Taylor and his team set up shop in a small premises in Castledawson making 50 frames a week. Now a market leader in uPVC window and door manufacture and installation, Super Seal has grown from this figure to now manufacture more than 2000 frames per week from orders received through four sites across Northern Ireland.
“Despite our rapid growth, we made sure to remain true to our core ethos,” explained Managing Director Kenneth Taylor. “We value the individuals who helped us to grow and this is reflected in every aspect of the business.”
Initially manufacturing traditional uPVC windows and doors, Super Seal has grown to specialise in producing an array of uPVC products, including fully reversible windows for the Housing Executive market and has now opened a new composite door factory in Lurgan.
“More recently we added aluminium windows, doors and bi-folding doors to our range,” said Taylor. “We’ll also be launching an exciting new product at FIT Show 2016.”
With customer service an important part of Super Seal’s business, according to its Managing Director the company has always aimed to be recognised as a highly customer focused supplier. Hosting three nights of celebrations with its north and south customers for hitting 25 years was therefore to be expected.
Hosting celebrations late last year at the Lough Erne Resort in Enniskillen, the Clarion Hotel in Cork, and the Red Cow Hotel in Dublin, besides the anniversary buffet and company speeches the celebrations gave Super Seal the opportunity to tell its customers about the exciting new range of niche products Profile 22 are set to reveal at this year’s FIT Show.
A customer of Profile 22 for over 20 years, a relationship that started early on has blossomed into a full-blown partnership. “We want to congratulate Kenneth and Super Seal on their landmark anniversary,” said Wolfgang Gorner, Epwin Window Systems’ Sales Director. “We love working with them and look forward to another 25 years!”
