Modplan: " the increase for coloured products shows no signs of slowing down as the surge in demand from consumers looking to personalise their homes has resulted in more colour options being required" , said Managing Director Heidi Sachs

Deceuninck:: " after a detailed company, market and product review it was clear we needed to give customers more choice, service and support to help them compete more effectively in growth markets. Colour and heritage windows were the prime areas" , explains Tradesmith Managing Director Mark Hutchinson

Swish Window and Door Systems: " we chose Swish because of its outstanding aesthetics that were streets ahead of what anyone else was offering at that time. Today it’s as popular as ever with our customers – its modern, contemporary lines mean it remains an extremely attractive system. " Comments David Dowling, Managing Director of Cairngorm Group

Pilkington UK: " The Pilkington Suncool™ 70/35 T coating selected by the design team offers high visible light transmittance, reduced solar transmittance and excellent low-emissivity all in one product. This means the floor space will be brightly lit by sunlight but won’t suffer from overheating on warmer days" , said Michael Metcalfe, commercial sales manager

Rapierstar: " when you consider the tiny unit price of a screw, £100,000 worth of screws is a huge volume to sell and dispatch in just one day. It’s a milestone we’ve reached ahead of our target and reflects what we are seeing in the market, with fabricators seeking to improve efficiency with a supply chain they can depend on. " says David Furness, group managing director

Framexpress: " we’re so committed to our 4-hour quotes, 48-hour windows promise, that we’ve made it our top priority. It’s such an integral part of the Framexpress service, it made sense to make it the focus of our new brand image too. " says Director Stuart Green.

LEKA Systems: " we're looking forward to seeing LEKA on TV. The adverts are part of our commitment to supporting LEKA fabricators and installers by driving leads and we know they will benefit from the increase in the products’ profile. " said Director Rhys Hoddinott

VEKA Group: " adding more colours to our ex-stock offering is another example of VEKA's ability to anticipate – and react flexibly to – trends in the current market. When it comes to production, we currently outperform the industry average with over 33% of our total sales now foiled, " explains Marketing Director Dawn Stockell

CENSolutions: " the team at CENSolutions came highly recommended and have totally lived up to expectations. We signed up with them a year ago now for EN 1279 Parts 2 and 3 and couldn’t be happier with how easy it is for us to get the job done. " explains, Mark Slattery, Managing Director at Fast Glass Processing

Kingfisher: " lift and slide doors are perfect for installers who have customers looking for an alternative to bifolds" says Deborah Beeley, sales and marketing manager.

Dekko Window Systems: " infinity has long been the luxury alternative to standard white uPVC windows and we're delighted to extend that with the brand-new substrate" comments Kurt Greatrex, Sales Director


Letter to the Editor - Implications of a colour-only fabricator

Dear Ian

Many fabricators chase every order. White or foiled, selling more frames is the goal, even if you take a hit on margins.

When I predicted we’d see the first colour-only fabricators this year, it caused a stir. But it wasn’t a publicity stunt. We’re very nearly there with several fabricators selling colour and supplying white only if asked. Imagine a different business model from the one most fabricators are used to, where you’re not chasing volume and getting knocked down on price. …»»

Letter to the editor: Housebuilding is BACK, is your business missing out?

Dear Ian

Whilst it’s long been said that the UK housebuilding industry is on its knees, we are once again beginning to see an increase of new houses being built. Yes, it may not yet be enough to meet the incredible demand for houses, but new developments are appearing all over the UK. In fact, in 2017 UK construction companies experienced their best year in a decade as builders registered plans to start over 160,000 new homes – an increase of 6% on the year before.

It appears that positive effect has continued in the first half of 2018, thanks in-part to the beginning of the Government’s five-year plan …»»
