In recent months, the external wall insulation industry has experienced an extraordinary growth spurt and since Wetherby have been early adopters of governmental schemes such as CERT, CESP and now Green Deal and ECO, they are consequently showing a significant level of business growth, with their market share having increased dramatically over the past 12 months.
Success stories however, do not come without rumour and speculation. Due to Wetherby’s unrivalled success, senior members of the team seem to be continually defending rumours that the company has been sold and has become part of a major utility / PLC.
In a bid to quash the rumours once and for all, Managing Director Bob Deane, states: “I can categorically assure our customers and suppliers that these rumours are completely unfounded. Wetherby are a privately owned, privately managed company and intend to remain so for the foreseeable future. We are not in any discussions to sell the business nor merge with a PLC. The company continues to expand based upon its keen strategy, hard-working staff and wealth of expertise and we hope to maintain our excellent service and quality of products for many years to come.”
In support of Mr Deane’s statement, New Business Director of E-On, Don Leiper has written a letter of support to the company stating that they wouldn’t wish their business relationship to suffer due to any misconceptions. [Copy letter can be viewed here.]
From Wetherby’s perspective, it’s onwards and upwards! with Mr Deane concluding: “As far as we’re concerned, it’s business as usual.”
