Long-term investment from Filon strengthens its sector diversity, whilst providing Mayan with the support it needs to “fund its growth plans” and develop its offering.
Filon Products has announced a significant, long-term investment into Mayan Roofing Systems, with the goal of establishing Mayan as “the UK’s most innovative roofing system company.”
Filon says it has been working closely with Mayan, who design, patent, manufacture and distribute high performance roofing products, to push the boundaries of GRP production with the manufacturer’s highly innovative ArmouredSlate, ArmouredStone and RealRidge roofing systems, which are due to be released imminently.
Mayan says its highly versatile Armoured GRP provides a waterproofing layer beneath any type of slate or stone, enabling installation in the single lap method, which is said to offer a 43% material and weight saving over the traditional double lap method. Mayan’s all-in-one RealRidge is a secret and dry fixed, ventilated ridge tile system, made from natural slate or stone.
Filon says its investment will ensure continuity in the supply of the essential high-quality GRP components required for the system, and enable the future development of a further series of exciting GRP innovations.
Mark Wilcox, Sales Director at Filon Products, explained: “This investment further strengthens Filon’s sector diversity whilst providing the financial security that Mayan needs to give it the ability to fund its growth plans and maximise its opportunities. The Filon board are delighted with the arrangement and looking forward to being a part of an exciting, innovative, growing business.”
Filon, as one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of GRP, with a proven track record in the manufacture of high-quality GRP products, says it is committed to innovation. The team at Mayan, responsible for some of the UK’s most innovative roofing products over the last decade, say they are set to continue with a fresh approach and catalogue of new and exciting roofing products. This close collaboration with Filon will increase Mayan’s capacity for releasing pioneering products into the market. The strategic move is described as the ‘perfect fit’ for both Filon and Mayan.
The exciting new ArmouredSlate, ArmouredStone and RealRidge systems will be showcased at the upcoming RCI Show on 28th & 29th September at the Stadium MK in Milton Keynes. Both Filon and Mayan welcome you to speak to the team and see their offering at Stand 8.
