Employee Spotlight: Jack Johnson

Last week, I sat down with one of our Project Account Manager’s, Jack Johnston to discuss all things Able Canopies and to find out a bit more about his role within the company to help you, get to know him a little better before you work together.


“I started working for Able Canopies three and a half years ago as their Project Account Manager in the Sales department. Having previously worked in a similar role, I have been able to put my existing knowledge and experience into action and build on my skills, working with contractor and Architect, through from tender stage to the installation.”

Extendable Canopies

If your clients would love nothing more than to invest in a commercial canopy, yet their budgets are restricted at the moment. The first option is to opt for a cheaper structure but the saying “buy cheap, buy twice” has never been more paramount, particularly in the current climate when cash is tighter than ever.

The second option is opting for a robust commercial canopy that is smaller than the larger size they had their heart set on. The thought of this may make them feel disheartened, however, if they choose to invest in The Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy from Able Canopies, this could be the solution to their problem.

2022’s Most Popular Canopy

We’ve said it since time began (well, since Able Canopies’ time began), that the Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy is our most popular canopy, and year on year, it remains true.

The stats are in and 2022 was no different, the Coniston canopy was yet again, our most popular canopy. So, to make things fun, we have put together some interesting stats to show you which parts of the UK now feature this robust canopy, what sectors are benefiting from the amazing weather protection features and the total length of Coniston canopies that we installed in 2022.

The total length of Coniston aluminium canopies we installed in 2022 was a whopping 1,561 metres. That’s almost double the length of the worlds tallest building; the Burj Khalifa and almost triple the length of the One World Trade Centre; the tallest building in the USA.
