The Pennine team celebrating a record year and reaching 40 years of the brand

Pennine celebrates 40th anniversary in style

The Newcastle-based retailer saw turnover increase by 35% during 2017 as it celebrated its 40th year in business.

Pennine Home Improvements reported a 35% rise in turnover during 2017 with turnover for its Benton showroom increasing by more than 15% to £12.7m. 

The company specialises in the design and installation of conservatories, orangeries, replacement conservatory roofs, windows and doors throughout the North East, with showrooms in Benton, Gosforth Park, Birtley and Ponteland.

In line with its continued growth, Pennine, which was acquired by The Conservatory Outlet Group in April, has made several significant senior appointments in recent months, including managing director; Mark Tinnion, marketing director; Nusheen Hussain and head of construction; Mark Weston.

A further 16 new members of staff have been appointed in the last year, taking the total number of employees to 65, with an additional 60 contractors, highlighting the firm's incredible success and need for further planned expansions in 2018.

Speaking about the double success, Tinnion said: "In the double-glazing industry, it is quite remarkable for a brand to be going strong for 40 years, so we are very proud of this.

"It is not by chance the brand has been in existence for so long and is still going strong, much investment and hard work has gone into the business over the years and we believe in continuous investment in the brand and company, to give our customers the best possible experience.

"Reporting our best results to date is the icing on the cake of what has been a pivotal year for the company."  

The company, which started with just two members of staff when first established, completed its 25,000th customer installation last year.
