Montreal, Canada, March 8, 2006 - Drummond Designs, a developer of architectural residential home plans, reports an annual increase in sales of 12,9%, representing more than 2,200 plans sold in the United States alone, for period ending December 31, 2005.
This increase compares more than favourably with the housing industry itself. The U.S Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development announced in a joint press release on January 19, 2006, that there were 2,064,700 privately-owned housing starts in 2005, 1,798 000 of which were single-family homes, a 5.6% spike over 2004.
The steady surge in sales of Drummond Designs' home plans is attributed to the award-winning quality of its product, which is displayed in most of the country's top-selling residential home plan magazines and on related websites.
Drummond Designs' growing status as a major player in the home design market is also reflected by the demand for its modification, remodelling and personalized services that have been endorsed by publishers and builders alike. They have come to recognize the craftsmanship of Drummond Designs' team of more than 100 home designers who understand that turn-around time is as important as the quality of the finished product.
« This continued success prompts us to announce we are currently finalizing a regional representative agreement to ensure that we respond efficiently to all business/alliance opportunities presented to us, » said Yves Carignan CEO of Drummond Designs inc. « At the same time, this process should strengthen our ties with an increasing number of industry stakeholders in the months to come. We are also able to state that we are now in the final stages of determining the region in which we will be opening our first Florida branch office later this year.»
