Style Scotland, the regional arm of UK partitioning experts Style, celebrates ten years of phenomenal growth.
“Since our launch in September 2007, we have installed more than 1300 operable walls worth in excess of £10m,” confirms David Louden, director for Style Scotland from their offices in Tillicoultry.
“In the month of September, Style strengthened its order book securing business worth more than £700K. This was a record month for us and shows how far the business has travelled in the last decade.”
Working closely with support from the other Style offices in the South of England, the Midlands and the North, Style Scotland completed the geographical coverage of the UK.
By combining the integrated management systems, strength and consistency of a national business with all the benefits of a locally operated one, Style Scotland has been able to offer the market a comprehensive solution to the creation of flexible space.
Over the ten years Style Scotland has delivered moveable wall solutions to countless high-profile projects across the region. At the Hydro Arena in Glasgow for example, two large Skyfold vertical-rising partitions were installed on either side of the stage, along with ten Dorma Varitrans glazed walls within the hospitality suites, in a project worth £500K to the Scottish region.
Of similar value was the installation at the University of Strathclyde TIC Building which was the first tiered auditorium in the UK to be divided by a stepped-Skyfold automatic wall system.
More recently, Style Scotland worked with Glasgow City Council to sub-divide a school hall with a ceiling height of 7.5m, using DORMA Variflex panels on programmable steel track.
The future looks bright too, particularly with regards to fully automatic partitioning walls systems, which have shown a definite upsurge in demand over the last three years.
