Foundations to grow on

The ethos at the Fenestration News is one of communicating the news and views from around the industry. There is always a sales bias, after all the trade media is essentially a tool for growing sales. To that end the focus has always been towards providing the facilities for those that could be termed the movers and shakers (shapers) that make this industry happen for them to create options.

We provide an indication as to how one entity might be shaping up to another by providing insight into how much interest the wider audience has in the media releases the industry provides. That comes in the shape of our page view count contained on the info page.

These little snippets are becoming more and more important in mapping out a direction, particularly in a ‘lean’ world. In the short time the Fenestration News has existed the amount of companies involved in the industry has receded close on 50% with no sign of any new blood arriving to take up the challenge. …»»
