CGL RainPulse has today announced a 50% increase in annual like-for-like sales as it reveals that the company is now successfully converting over 93% of quotes for it’s Membrane Lined Gutter product when there is an order to place.
Today’s announcement tops off an extremely busy 20 months for the business, which became a part of Merson Group during the acquisition of CGL Systems Ltd in January 2013.
Following the acquisition, CGL RainPulse was relocated to a dedicated manufacturing facility in East Kilbride, Glasgow. Then, as part of a £1 million investment and capital expenditure program, the company benefitted from new plant and equipment and an increased focus on product innovation.
A particular focus of attention was the Membrane Lined Gutter product that CGL pioneered and first brought to the market over 30 years ago. Having spent the past 12 months improving the quality of the product, reviewing production processes and increasing manufacturing capacity, significant cost savings were achieved.
These cost savings were passed onto the customer in the form of a new pricelist brought to the market earlier this year. It is these cost savings and the improvements to the Membrane Lined Gutter that have helped CGL achieve the staggering feat of converting over 93% of quotes where their customers have an order to place.
Stuart McMillan, Senior Project Manager of CGL RainPulse, stated:
“Since becoming part of Merson Group nearly 2 years ago we have been focusing on refining our operations in an effort increase manufacturing capabilities whilst also driving down production costs. It is very rewarding to today announce that this work has not only resulted in a 50% uplift in sales but that we have also managed to pass such significant cost savings onto our long-serving customers.”
