Origin has launched a brand new showroom in Warrington, Cheshire, showcasing its aluminium bi-folding and residential doors, windows and blinds.
The 13,211 sq ft premises includes office space, training and meeting rooms, storage, as well as a showroom.
Set across two levels, the vast space features a 90 degree moving corner post bi-fold door set, a four door bi-folding set, as well as fixed frame, gable and casement windows, of which are finished with a selection of Origin’s premium blind collection. It also features a maximum sized top hung window, which is 1500mm wide.
Origin expects its new facilities to provide an invaluable service to its existing clients and trade agents, as well as the opportunity for new specifiers and residential customers to view its offerings and products first hand.
The new showroom will provide a lead generation service for local Origin suppliers, as it enables the Warrington sales team to demonstrate true product potential to homeowners, talk through the benefits, and direct them to local trusted Origin suppliers from there.
For local homeowners, it provides a vital hub in the North to view Origin’s product range as a preliminary research tool. These potential customers will be able to test the doors and windows in-situ, hear about the latest designs and additional upgrades such as space age technology, Aerogel, a material exclusive to Origin, which makes the window capable of achieving a U-Value of 0.9 and energy rating of A++.
The new facilities will enable Origin to improve its customer service by transporting its products across the country more quickly and resourcefully. It will also station service engineers within the North to promptly address any technical customer issues, especially if they are required to go on-site. The showroom will also host Fitter Fitter training programmes to its trade partners from there, so installers can learn the most efficient and technically accurate way to install Origin’s bi-folding doors and windows, without having to travel to Origin HQ in Buckinghamshire.
Ben Brocklesby, sales and marketing director at Origin, said: “We’ve been supplying our products nationwide for a number of years, but with the increased demand across the UK, we foresaw that expansion to the North of England was needed. Not only to ensure the future growth of the business, but to provide our Northern trade customers and agents with readily available service much more easily.
“It has been an incredibly exciting development and we are delighted to see it all come together. The new showroom will complement the company’s ongoing sales and marketing activities by allowing our customers, whether they be suppliers or homeowners, more choice and information. This investment ensures we can showcase all our products to a wide distributor network and provide our local customers with all the information they require to make an informed choice.”
The Warrington showroom is located at: Origin Global, Taurus Park, Europa Boulevard, Westbrook, Warrington, Cheshire, WA57ZT.
