SupaLite, the highly-respected manufacturers of tiled roof systems are celebrating the signing of a new, five-year supply agreement for ExtraLight roof tiles with New Zealand manufacturer The Ross Roof Group.
The new agreement sees SupaLite extend their position as the group’s exclusive UK distributor and continues a long-standing partnership between the two companies. Preston-based SupaLite became the very first company in Europe to supply the renowned ExtraLight shingle tile three years ago.
“Over the past three years, ExtraLight tiles have really transformed the UK market and have become an integral part behind the performance and the appeal of a SupaLite replacement tiled roof. We’re delighted The Ross Roof Group sees the value in our partnership to extend our supply agreement for a further five years,” comments Steve Hacking, Operations Director at SupaLite.
“It’s an agreement based on a great relationship but also a great success, with a growth in tiles sales of almost 40% to date. We’re on track for growth of a further 20% this year which is a real testament to the quality of their product range and the value of trusting the UK’s leading and original tiled roof manufacturer. We’re incredibly proud to be their exclusive UK supplier and look forward to further success in the coming years.”
Manufactured using the Ross Roof Group’s six decades of experience, the ExtraLight shingle roof tile is a metal roof tile finished with an extremely hard-wearing natural stone coating. Fully approved by the LABC and the BBA, it’s the only shingle tile tested down to 10-degrees by the Building Research Establishment (BRE), passing EN 15601.
“We are pleased to announce our extended partnership with SupaLite following an extensive period of success for both businesses,” adds Cameron Ross, Sales Director at The Ross Roof Group. “We supply tiles into markets across the world including North America, Asia, Africa and Australasia. It’s fantastic to see SupaLite flying the flag in the UK and Europe with such success, showcasing our easy-to-install, yet high-performance and long-lasting product range.”
Designed for use on both replacement conservatory roofs as well as properties and buildings, the ExtraLight roof tile comes with an authentic textured finish and is available in a range of colours. Quite uniquely, the tiles are made using Zincalume protective steel which ensures significantly longer service compared to traditional galvanised tiles. Even so, ExtraLight tiles are available with a comprehensive 50-year weatherproof warranty for complete peace of mind.
