AGM Statement

Ultraframe PLC
19 January 2001

FOR RELEASE                      2.05PM                     19 JANUARY 2001

                        Ultraframe Plc ('Ultraframe')

Europe's leading specialist designer and manufacturer of conservatory roofing

                 HEALTHY start to the current financial year

Rod Sellers, the Chairman, speaking at the Annual General Meeting at Clitheroe
today, stated:

'We have made a healthy start to the year.  Turnover for the first three
months in the core business was marginally ahead of the very buoyant first
quarter of the previous financial year with a strong performance recorded by
the commercial structures subsidiary, Ultraspan Limited.

The outlook for our core business looks positive with the domestic market for
conservatories predicted by independent market research to grow by over 10%
during calendar year 2001 and by 52.7% over the four years ending December

Consumers are increasingly recognising the attractions of adding
conservatories to new houses and we expect this sector of our market to
continue to grow.

Ultraspan, our recently expanded commercial systems business, which
specialises in glazed structures, walkways, canopies and retail structures, is
developing rapidly and sales to date are ahead of expectations at £1.5m, over
£1m ahead of the equivalent period last year.  The order book, at £1.7m, is
also at record levels.

Our investment in both the US and European markets continues.  We are now
beginning to see the first fruits of this investment on both continents and
expect to see positive developments during the rest of the year.

I believe that we can look forward to another year of good growth.'
