AB Fenêtres Groupe is today announcing the opening of four new sales points: Two branches (Abbeville and Quimper) and two franchises (Villefranche/Saône and Ivry/Seine). The continued rhythm of sales agency and franchise opening since 30 June 2006, allows the Group to have a future mixed distribution network of 43 sales points, comprising 37 branches and 6 franchises.
AB Fenêtres Groupe also plans the forthcoming opening of three new branches in the towns of Agen, Foix and Saint Brieuc.
At the same time the Group has signed a partnership with Vivrelec 2007 and will introduce an integrated call centre.
Signature of a partnership with Vivrelec 2007 for joinery and air conditioning
Vivrelec is an EDF brand encouraging high quality installations for its home improvement customers. The Vivrelec label is renewed depending on warranties (Product quality, installation in complete safety, consumption control...) and the service commitments offered to its customers by the certified company.
This commercial partnership with Vivrelec is evidence of the recognition of AB Fenêtres Groupe know-how and the quality of the products sold. It will allow the Group to strengthen and increase its presence with individual consumers, in both insulation and air conditioning, a market that AB Fenêtres is entering with an innovative and ecological product, the Windy air conditioner.
Easy to install and fitted with a single internal unit eliminating problems related to the split (Application costs, ugly building appearance, need for discussions between co owners), the Windy air conditioner allows Groupe AB Fenêtres to expand its product range and so to capture new customers.
Introduction of a new customer service: Integrated call centre
Based in Le Mans, the internal call centre will allow customer relations to be optimised, increase the number of appointments for sales teams and create turnover. AB Fenêtres Groupe plans eventual recruitment of 25 people for this new service.
