Case study: DMD Installations relies on Kestrel

Carrying out 7,500 roofline installations a year, DMD Installations has built a reputation for its ability to deliver quality, reliability on a large-scale projects.

The Norwich-based company, which offers roofline, rainwater, and cladding solutions to domestic dwellings, social housing providers and to the new build sector, has grown rapidly on its ability to carry out larger projects.

DMD Installations Commercial Director Steve Bowden explained that the company depends on Kestrel roofline and cladding products for their quality and reliability.

Steve said: “We work nationwide, and currently have sites spanning from Southampton to Yorkshire and Coventry to Lowestoft, for multiple housing associations and building contractors.

“Each one has different specifications which we have to adhere to but when we have the opportunity of installing products of our choice then ultimately, we always turn to Kestrel.”

Steve explained that when they tender for contracts, the procurement process can often be tight. Kestrel’s commitment to sustainability and reducing its environmental impact supports DMD Installations’ own policies helping put them above their competitors on the UK Framework of contractors.

Steve said: “With large scale contracts, we get scored on price obviously, but also on many other variables from our health and safety record to our environmental impact.

“Kestrel products carry the BES 6001 for responsible sourcing and have clear documentation on their environmental management systems that are important to our customers.”

Steve added that they are often contracted to undertake large scale projects, including 6,500 properties in Colchester and 4,000 in High Wycombe in recent years.

Kestrel is one of the few companies that can confidently deliver the volume of products required for these jobs to run smoothly.

“The products are good quality and if we have any issues they are resolved quickly,” he added.

“A strong supply chain is essential for our business to succeed, and that’s why we choose Kestrel time and again.”
