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.

Chris Ball: As usual insightful, he reminds us that the main stream media along with social media has its focus on self promotion by being anti the world. Those domains show that fear, loathing and entitlement are the way in their world lives are lived..

As a further illustration of unrealistic negativity and encouragement for unearned entitlement these Media circles promote, today they have an Egg Producer that is selling at the same price as 5 years ago, pleading that the Government (read Taxpayer) not their own customers should subsidies their business, other wise prices may have to increase

The Rawson-Filofax: At the start of a trade show always filter out a juicy rumour, for no other reason to see how it spins out of control by the last day.

The Sales objective: The real positive and aim from any trade show is the recruitment of additional Sales Staff.

Distinction Doors: "It's a brave new design that's very different from our familiar product directory brochure. The content is radically different, and we have focussed on our USPs to target strongly against the competition" . Bethaney Larkman, marketing manager explains further

Hurst Doors: "Recent years have seen Britain address its attitudes to fire safety following the Grenfell tragedy. Today, the industry demands a GRP Composite fire door system that can consistently demonstrate compliance and dependable performance, and this can only be achieved through bi-directional testing and third-party certification" Comment, Sales Director Mark Atkinson >

Carl F Groupco: "Smart technology is an exciting development for the industry and the latest technology has been designed to deliver safety, convenience, connectivity and peace of mind to homeowners. It is also an added value sale for the fabricator and installer and allows them to differentiate their offer from the competition." says Managing Director of the independently-owned hardware distributor John Crittenden.

VEKA: "As a trustworthy supplier, we won't just tell you that our products are compliant, we will show you how we achieved it. When navigating these changes, we knew exactly what we needed to do. Our very clear specifications - which are written down for you to see - result in products that meet all our kitemarks, pass all our testing, and are fully re-enforced in dark colours. These aren't bold claims, these are facts." said,Technical Director Paul Kennington

Exlabesa: "Like all the products we sell in Britain, these have been designed and manufactured in Doncaster. We're proud to make world-class products right here in the UK. From mid-June, most Exlabesa systems will be in compliance with Part L and able to achieve a U-Value of 1.4W/m²K utilising a standard double-glazed unit." comments National Sales Director Patrick Burke.

Promat UK: "Designing and installing effective passive fire protection measures using glass requires a thorough understanding of how the different materials combine and interact. And, unfortunately, there is no margin for error, which is why we've created this training resource to help specifiers navigate the various regulations and standards and understand how to get it right for critical applications that protect people's lives." said Segment Manager - Glass and author of the CPD, Cath McLean.

VEKA Group engages in Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Campaign – The Loneliest Road

As a value-driven family-owned company, we are aware of our responsibility to our employees, our business partners and the important issues in society. This understanding drives our vision "We Care. We Act. We Grow.” We strive to live this every day and accordingly, we announce support and events for one of our cherished projects.

In our daily lives, particularly in the business world, mental health and suicide prevention remain subjects that are rarely discussed or addressed. However, especially today, external stress factors alone place high burdens on each individual and we feel these topics are more important than ever. ! .…»
