The entire Ambience team takes great pride in supporting customers on all levels, from order processing through to production and final delivery. Every aspect is carefully monitored by the recently modified Quality Control Department. The company as a whole has seen steady growth that has led to additional staffing by up to 15% for 2014, which helps Tuffx maintain a high level of performance.
As conservatory design has continued to progress with radical improvements to performance and aesthetics being introduced, it has generated substantial growth for Tuffx in 2014. Furthermore the company has introduced Apprenticeship Schemes to develop a greater skill base going forward. Nationally, Ambience customers have acknowledged the immense variety of colour options, varying high performance glass options, including the NEW Ambi sunshade blue which offers the highest Solar control properties whilst maintaining it’s true self-clean coating.
