U-Values the focus for CDW Systems in 2023

U-Values will be the focus for fabricators in 2023. That’s the view of CDW Systems Group Chairman Jeremy Phillips.

With energy efficiency set to play an even bigger role, the Gloucester-based aluminium fabricator, part of the East Manor Group, is making sure it can provide customers with the right products.

“Customers, be they domestic or commercial, want to get the best U-values they can within their budget,” said Jeremy. “Whereas previously customers just want to change windows, we’re now finding our trade customers are getting challenged more and more now on what U-value they can provide.

“We are expecting this to carry on in 2023, and our focus will be on making sure our product range is as energy efficient as possible and making any changes or improvements we need to so our customers can get what they need.”

After another busy year for the aluminium specialists, which celebrated its 30th year in 2022, Jeremy is also expecting things to be a bit more challenging in the retail market while continuing to see growth in commercial.

“The current financial climate means 2023 is going to be quite challenging and the industry will be depending on many things that are out of our control, for example, if we have a really cold winter, for example, that will cost people a lot of money and that will reduce their disposable income on the retail side of things,” added Jeremy.

“On the commercial side of things, we are still seeing a lot of projects that were stopped during the pandemic now coming to the fore, so if the retail side slows down then we’re expecting the commercial side to fill any gap.”

Established in 1992, CDW Systems is one of the UK’s longest-running aluminium specialists, and its expertise and extensive market knowledge has seen it grow into one of the most well-respected specialists in the trade supply of aluminium window, door and curtain wall products.
