The Fenestration News Bulletin this week will be sent to more than 14,000 recipients in just over 9,000 organisations aligned to the Window Industry. Making it an effective delivery platform to get your Companies message across.

The NHBC indicates that house building in the UK for 2017 is at its highest for 10 years, with Taylor Wimpey, Barratt and Persimmon all reporting increase in profits.

The Fenestration Industry likewise shows an all-round uplift in sales and profits over the past year, with recruitment for growth also on the up.

The reality of the actual real indicators of the fitness of an industry generally amuses when compared to how the predictors and soothsayers were wishing things to turnout. It could be reasoned that those in the driving seat anticipate what's said by the predictors and act accordingly, causing a different outcome. One suspects the real cause of the consistent alternative outcome is the result of those in the driver's seat actually being on top of their game - they have a plan and know how to work to it.

Deceuninck: “We had an exciting year in 2017 with the launch of our Heritage Window Collection, some prestigious new customer wins, hitting and surpassing the 50% colour milestone,”says Managing Director of UK Rob McGlennon

Inagas: “We have been an Inagas customer for over 15 years and have remained faithful to them due to the fact they can always meet our expectations when it comes to our offline gas filling and testing requirements,” explains Nick Welsh, managing director of SafeGuard

OnLevel UK: “2017 was a significant year in moving the organisation to the next important stage of expansion with the establishment of the UK warehouse, new direct sales in Scandinavia,” explained Gary Dean, CEO

Tradelink: “We have invested £450,000 in machinery for the new manufacturing facility in Stoke-on-Trent,”explains Managing Director Jim Moody

Edgetech: “Our scores give us a fantastic base to build on as we strive to become even more customer-focused in the months and years ahead,”comments Managing Director Chris Alderson

Prefix: “Colour is one of the biggest talking points in the glazing and fenestration sectors,” co-director Chris Cooke points out
