EYG to open new Scarborough showroom to meet increased North Yorkshire demand

New jobs have been created as EYG is to open its new Scarborough showroom on Saturday, October 14.

EYG – which has been established 47 years and installs conservatories, orangeries and windows for customers across England and Wales – has enjoyed more than 22% growth over the past 12 months, with its turnover now in excess of £24m.

The firm already employs more than 300 people in seven branches across the country, with its operations run from its headquarters in Hull.

With a buoyant market and continued growth in 2017, the business has invested heavily into new products and showrooms, including the 7,000sq ft facility in Salter Road, Scarborough, which will officially open on Saturday, October 14. The business has also been recruiting new staff to work across North Yorkshire.

Staff and managers from EYG will be on hand to meet customers from 10am-4pm on the open day, with offers including up to 55% off windows and 30% off hybrid roofs, conservatories and orangeries available on the day.

Recruitment managers will also be on hand to discuss potential career opportunities with the firm, with window and conservatory fitters now being sought alongside new conservatory builders and base teams to operate across North Yorkshire.

Managing director Nick Ward said: “We are very excited about the opening of our new Scarborough showroom as it is an area of the business we have invested heavily in, helping us really strengthen our work in North Yorkshire and along the Yorkshire coast.

“We are seeing increasing demand for our products, especially in the area of home extensions, as people are increasingly recognising the benefits of adding to their homes, creating extra space and adding value, rather than looking to move elsewhere.

“It is why we are continually adding to our product range and recently launched new flat roof lights which provide a large, totally unobstructed view to the sky. Homeowners increasingly want something different and rooms with the wow factor.

“To meet this demand we have also been recruiting once again, just 12 months after we previously added to our teams. It is good news for us, and for the area. These are jobs which have really good earnings potential, and due to the demand, provide constant work for those we take on.”

EYG’s industry-leading windows, conservatories, orangeries and doors are all designed and manufactured in its 65,000 sq ft factory in Hull, East Yorkshire.

It’s success in the domestic market has been mirrored by the commercial arm of its business, which is currently working on its biggest ever contract with a £5.13million deal to glaze one of the UK’s biggest care homes, whilst also securing a string of major contracts in London.

The firm invested £500,000 last year into new machinery which has enabled it to make its manufacturing process four times quicker, producing A-rated windows for energy – the highest possible – as standard.

This year it also launched new websites for both its domestic and commercial businesses, which have helped drive a lift in digital revenues of 39% year on year, with digital revenue now accounting for 10% of the overall business.

Mr Ward added: “Our focus on digital marketing has brought excellent results. Long gone are the days when all business came in through the showroom door.

“We recognised the need for our full product range and offers to be available and instantly accessible for customers using tablets and mobile phones, and we have invested heavily to make that happen.

“It has all put us on course for our best year in business again, and that is why have been able to reinvest and create new employment opportunities.”

EYG was has been shortlisted in the Medium/Large Business of the Year category of the 2017 Chamber Bridlington and Yorkshire Coast Business Awards, which will be held at the Bridlington Spa on October 20.
