Russells plans for success with sponsorship

Following on from a record-breaking year in sales, leading roof tile manufacturer Russell Roof Tiles is looking to further its ambitious growth plans with the sponsorship of The Planning Awards 2018.

Taking place on 6th June 2018 at Savoy Place in London, The Planning Awards is one of the most important events on the industry’s calendar. It recognises excellence within professional planning work as well as related placemaking and economic development activity.

Russell Roof Tiles, which is the first manufacturer to have ever sponsored the award, has seen tremendous growth within the planning and social housing sector over the past year and believes the sponsorship will help both support and strengthen the Russell Roof Tiles’ relationships within the industry.

With 25 categories available to enter, Russell Roof Tiles will be sponsoring the Planning for Increased Housing Delivery Award.

The sponsorship follows on from a brilliant year for Russell Roof Tiles who recently invested half a million pounds in its Lochmaben, Scotland site to meet growing customer demands and its plastics division saw a 20 per cent increase in sales at one of its two sites in Burton on Trent.

Russell Roof Tiles’ introduction of its new thinner leading tiles, Bute and stone colours within its Natural Range also saw excellent success with a number of private and social housing developments specifying the product. In particular, Russell Roof Tiles saw thinner leading-edge sales rise by 38 per cent in Scotland and 35 per cent in the south of the UK – just two years after a new southern sales division was launched.

Andrew Hayward, Managing Director at Russell Roof Tiles said; “We have enjoyed a fantastic year of growth at Russell Roof Tiles, especially within the planning and social housing sector and we want to continue this success and build on our business partnerships in 2018.

“The Planning Awards is one of the of the most prestigious events within the planning industry and welcomes entries and attendees from all over the UK. We are proud to be a vital part of the event and we’re looking forward to tightening our relationships within the sector and raising awareness of the brand even further.”

Richard Garlick, Editor at Planning Magazine added: “The Planning Awards are run by Planning magazine in conjunction with PlanningResource and PlacemakingResource and reward excellence in planning-related activities such as placemaking, urban design, economic development, housing, regeneration, legal advice and environmental consulting. Taking place on 6th June 2018, the awards bring together professionals across the industry for a night of both celebration and networking at Savoy Place, a prestigious central London venue overlooking the River Thames.

“We are delighted that Russell Roof Tiles will be a key sponsor for The Planning Awards 2018.”
