Window of opportunity: Robust construction activity should support future revenue growth

The Metal Door and Window Manufacturing industry has faced some moderate competition from substitute products manufactured from materials such as wood and uPVC.

However, the Help to Buy scheme and other government initiatives have supported industry demand over the past five more.
