York-based Orion Windows Limited has been bought out of administration by Orion Home Improvements Limited, saving the jobs of all 16 staff.

Established in 1989, the independently-owned company supplies conservatories, orangeries and extensions as well as high performance windows and doors. It has a showroom in Clifton Moor, York, with a large display of fully finished conservatories, orangeries and solid roofs in a range of styles.

Phil Booth (pictured) of Booth & Co was appointed as administrator on 18 November 2022 and the sale of its business and assets was immediately completed to Orion Home Improvements, a company owned by a consortium that includes the directors of Conservatory Outlet Ltd, Orion Windows’ main manufacturer and supplier.

Phil commented: “After 30 years of successful trading, Orion Windows has been faced with a number of issues over the last couple of years; having suffered from the impact of multiple Covid lockdowns which resulted in a fall in revenue, it was then hit by the escalating costs of raw materials and energy.

“The company was marketed by Mark Rowlands of SIA Group in Leeds and a pre-packaged sale was subsequently agreed to Orion Home Improvements, securing the future of this long-established business. This deal is great news for staff, customers and suppliers.”
