Cloud 9 is an owner operated business covering the entire Western Cape and Eastern Cape with the two directors directly involved in the day to day running of the business's different elements. The current owners bought the business as a going concern in 1994, at the time the business employed 4 staff and this has risen to 20 including office staff over the last 6 years, a growth factor we are very proud of.
At the time of purchase Cloud 9 concentrated primarily on the domestic market manufacturing roof windows, small pyramids and barrel vaults. However a need was identified for a skylight company that offered the full range of products both big and small. A further need was identified in the Commercial market where a lot of the installations required in the Western Cape was done by companies not based in the Western Cape. Cloud 9 adopted a philosophy of a "One Stop" for all installations involving glass, aluminium and polycarbonate. These identified markets and the "One Stop" philosophy has resulted in the huge growth that Cloud 9 has achieved over the last 6 years; moving from a small player in the market to the Leading Skylight Company in the Western Cape.
We have subsequently built up strong relationships with architects, developers, Quantity Surveyors and the main contractors, primarily as a nominated or selected sub-contractor but occasionally as a direct appointee, while still servicing small, medium and large residential contracts.
Cloud 9 Skylights is, We believe, the only skylight company in the Western Cape which offers the full range of services from consultation with Principles and architects, through design, manufacture, installation and waterproofing, in ALL of the skylight materials, aluminium and glass, flat sheet polycarbonate, multiwall polycarbonate and profiled polycarbonate roof sheeting to name a few.
We are also the only company which offers the full range of skylights from roof windows through ridge lights to pyramids, barrel vaults, walk-way and pool enclosures, atriums and conservatories and can design and custom-build any enclosure in any of these materials for almost any area. Another philosophy we have is anything is possible, you design a concept and Cloud 9 will make it reality.
Our company can manufacture and install structural steel sub-structure, with certificates, and will liaise, in need, with the main contractor ITO steel requirements.
A further move on the path to offering our clients the best quality and design available was when we became members of AAASA (Association of Aluminium Manufacturers of South Africa) , SAGGI (South African Glass and Glazing Association) and SASA (South Africa Skylight Association). These are the controlling bodies for the different aspects of the work Cloud 9 undertakes.
In pursuit of the "One Shop" policy Cloud 9 Skylights has recently, in June 2008, purchased the Trade Name and assets of the original Four Seasons Conservatories (Four Seasons Aluminium Products) in Cape Town and now also offers a range of balcony enclosures, green-houses and all various conservatory styles as well as a range of aluminium windows and folding/sliding and standard Aluminium doors. This acquisition has served us well as Cloud 9 has now become a truly comprehensive supplier of all your Aluminium, Polycarbonate and glass requirements.
We are very proud of what we have achieved thus far and will continue to focus on delivering the highest standard of quality product and workmanship while maintaining sustainable growth.
