Market Sectors

The primary market for Leka Systems products is the ‘Tiled Conservatory Roof’ sector, serviced by home improvement companies with the help of their chosen fabricators.

Tiled Conservatory Roof System sales across the entire market have seen an increase of over 250% since 2015, with growing demands for not just the replacement roof sector but also for new build conservatories. This growth is set to continue due to homeowner demand, requiring more usable space, whilst also adding value to their properties.

Orangery solutions have seen a rise in recent years due to the physical grand appearance they offer to a home, along with giving the best of both worlds, through proportioned light and warmth at the same time. The Leka Orangery Flat roof allows a far superior solution for both homeowners and installers, guaranteeing faster installation timescales and longevity from its core materials.

Due to a number of obvious factors, there has never been a higher demand from homeowners for additional space. These include extensions, garden rooms, conversions etc etc. The Leka Xi fits itself neatly into this marketplace, allowing either a single storey extension or free standing garden building to be constructed onsite in under a week. Homeworking continues to be recognized as a preferred solution for many businesses and as such, this extends a requirement for quick, cost-effective alternative space to be provided.

What is Leka and where does it sit in the supply chain

Leka Systems is a ‘Systems Company’ responsible for its product designs, approvals, certifications, and testing. The company sits at the beginning of the supply chain, selling bar length & components into its certified regional fabricators.

Fabricators utilise software supplied by Leka to design, quote, and process projects they receive from Installers / Installation companies. Fabricator’s manufacture completed systems to exact specifications, delivering to the installer to then be erected onsite (typically at a homeowners property).

The company provides national marketing campaigns to assist with ‘homeowner’ lead generation. These leads are then distributed to regional Leka Installation companies to provide quotations and assist with their growth in the process.

Other campaigns are carried out each year to help reach new installation and fabrication companies.
