5 Star Windows and Conservatories, which employs more than 120 people at its two showrooms in Kidderminster and Worcester, has seen orders go past £12m for the first time in its 22-year history.

A shift in consumer spending during lockdown towards homes has helped, along with  a new commercial deal with Kidderminster Harriers that has seen it become a main sponsor and the sole sponsor of the North Stand at Aggborough Stadium.

Richard Manser, Managing Director of 5 Star Windows and Conservatories, said: “We are deeply passionate about our roots and the town we work in and wanted to put something back and make a bit of a statement in the process. The relationship with Chairman Richard Lane has been really strong and the exposure our brand has received has been phenomenal, including live television and all the press coverage in the lead-up to and after the games.”

5 Star Windows and Conservatories has established a strong reputation across Worcestershire and the surrounding counties, having installed more than 32,000 windows and completed over 3,250 conservatories, orangeries and lifestyle extensions during the last two decades.

The company, which is part of the Conservatory Outlet network of retailers, is looking to capitalise on recent investment in its £150,000 training academy and the introduction of new products across its two showrooms in Kidderminster and Worcester.

Richard went on to add: “We have always been very proactive when it comes to our marketing, and this is something we really focused on when Covid-19 first struck.

“Rather than hold back on spending, we decided to continue with all our activity, and, in some instances, we increased what we were doing, including a really productive radio advertising campaign and our own 5 Star jingle.”
