Selling windows to the USA despite the pandemic
The coronavirus epidemic is a huge shock to the world economy. The plans and methods of operation of many companies have changed radically so far. PAGEN is a positive example of finding oneself in this difficult situation. The manufacturer of joinery has just informed about the same level of sales of windows to the USA as last year and presented one of the investments equipped with his PVC joinery.
So far the increase of export to the United States of America of the Polish window industry from year to year has filled with considerable optimism. In 2019 Polish companies producing PVC windows and doors recorded a 20% increase in sales of their products compared to the previous year. In case of steel joinery the increase was even more impressive and amounted to 50%. However, the current situation of the construction market in the USA will certainly affect this branch of Polish exports.
In April 2020 there was a 30% decrease in the number of houses and apartments built in the United States compared to the same period last year. The number of building permits issued has also dropped noticeably - it was more than 20 percent less than a year ago. Maintaining last year's level of sales to the U.S. after 7 months of this year, in this situation we welcome with a sense of satisfaction. The order book for realisations in the upcoming months will allow us to successfully implement the assumed sales plan for year 2020, especially that, despite the pandemic, we are shipping goods without any delays` – comments in industry media Barbara Kapusta, Export Sales Manager of PAGEN LLC ,responsible for English speaking markets.
Thanks to the gradual unfreezing of the American economy, the construction industry has a chance to recover from the worst of the collapse.
I am looking forward to the future with hope and I’m glad to hearing about further bold investment decisions made by our key partners. Their recommendations for our products also contribute to the development of our sales network on the American market," concludes Barbara Kapusta, inviting you to see the recently commissioned investment in Chicago, Illinois, equipped with PAGEN PVC windows.
