We are so pleased to report that one of our commercial clients, The Old Rectory Hotel has recieved yet more awards in the TripAdvisor 2015 Traveller's Choice Awards. The awards are based on feedback from guests who have stayed at the hotel during the previous year. The Old Rectory is now able to call themselves a World Class Hotel.
We are always pleased to see completion photos of our previous projects. It's really interesting to compare the before and after photos of our customer's homes.
With the numbers now in, I am pleased to announce that the David Salisbury Group achieved record sales in 2014 at £14.98m tantilisingly short of £15m, but 10% up on 2013 which was the previous record year. There is clearly a strong and growing market for our top of the range products with especially good growth in sales of our Oak framed Orangeries and Garden Rooms.
December itself was also a record at £1.8m for the month, beating the the previous record of £1.7m set in December 2007.
I am pleased to wish a Happy New Year to all David Salisbury staff and customers. I hope you have all had a great Christmas and that 2015 will be an even better year for everyone. Everything is in place for a good 2015 for the company, and I will be commenting on over the next few days on how 2014 ended.
I am pleased to announce that we have appointed a new Head of Installations - Paul Edwards who starts work with us this Monday 10th November. This recruitment is in response to significant growth in installations in 2014 following from a surge in orders in the second half of 2013.
