Village Blinds and Shutters, a leading bespoke window solution provider based in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, proudly announces three consecutive years of remarkable double-digit revenue growth.

A Strategic Expansion of a New Shutter Factory

This milestone achievement is attributed to the strategic expansion of their state-of-the-art plantation shutter factory in Pennybridge Industrial Estate, Ballymena. Since this expansion, the company’s manufacturing output has nearly doubled from 1,500m² in the first year to just under 3,000m² last year.

Creating New Roles

The new manufacturing facility has also created five new full-time production roles and necessitated the expansion of their specialist installation team. These new roles not only signify Village Blinds and Shutters’ dedication to supporting economic growth but also highlight their investment in nurturing local talent and expertise within their workforce.

Quality and Production Control

This strategic decision has empowered the business with unparalleled control over both the quality and production pace of its shutters. By centralising manufacturing operations, Village Blinds and Shutters now produces high-quality shutter products that are reinforced with aluminium, ensuring enhanced durability and aesthetic appeal.

Managing Director Harold McCloy shares,

“Our decision to establish a dedicated facility for producing composite plantation shutters was a strategic response to mitigate the supply chain disruptions experienced during the pandemic. However, more significantly, it was a proactive measure to secure ultimate control over the quality and production pace of our shutters.

The ability to manufacture plantation shutters locally has been instrumental in driving our steady growth. It has enabled us to provide customers across Northern Ireland with meticulously engineered products, renowned for their longevity, appearance and quality..

This growth stands as a testament not only to our investment in cutting-edge technology and materials but also to the dedication and craftsmanship of our team. Their commitment to excellence has played a pivotal role in expanding our customer base. We eagerly anticipate continuing to serve our community with products that redefine homes and endure the test of time.”
