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.

Epwin Window Systems: "When it comes to heritage windows such as vertical sliders and flush casements, fabricators and installers need solutions that deliver on every level to ensure they meet the higher expectations. With Profile 22, Spectus and Swish, our customers can offer the products to help them do exactly that." commented Gerald Allen marketing manager

SWISSPACER: "Until now, cycle times for traditionally bent spacer bars and welded SWISSPACER spacer bars have been almost identical. The ' speed up kit' is a great advancement and makes perfect welded frames in less than 25 seconds. " says Andreas Geith managing director

Boing Boing Group: " In an industry where quality is a given, service is everything. At CentralASL the product range and quality are exceptional, but what really sets us apart is our focus on customer service. We call it customer intimacy - really knowing our customers" CEO Gary Morton describes what’s behind CentralASL's success

Modplan: "You only have to glance at the market data to see that consumer trends are shifting. Market intelligence reveals that today's consumers are looking for something other than standard white PVC-U casements. The result is that feature-rich products such as mechanically jointed vertical sliders and flush casement windows are booming and it's something we have witnessed here at Modplan for some time. " Heidi’s Sachs, managing director explains

DOORCO: "It is well documented that the popularity of the composite door is growing and the market is getting bigger. With this demand comes complexity - customers are demanding more choice and there is greater competition out there. For DOORCO, our policy is to not only keep up with these demands, but also make sure these complexities aren't an issue for our customers" says Dan Sullivan MD

Framexpress: "From talking to customers, we know that many of them do their quotes in the evenings when they get home. So, it made sense for us to offer a quick quote service until later in the day, in addition to our early morning opening. It means that installers will be able to get a price back to homeowners faster than their competitors" explains Stuart Green, director

Oakland Glass: "Even though we're celebrating 32 years in business, we are still investing in continuous improvement. We're a volume manufacturer so need automation to produce the number of units we make, but most importantly, it's our people that ensure we deliver quality time and time again" explains Tina Moorhouse, managing director

Letter to the Editor - Installation tape offers a solution to the silicone shortage

Dear Ian,

As hundreds of your readers will know all too well, we’re in the middle of the worst silicone shortage in years – and in fenestration, that’s a big problem.

We’re now faced with higher prices, longer lead times - often by weeks, not days - and the dilemma of whether to suck up the punishment and try and wait it out, or think long-term and look for alternatives.

The causes for the shortage are complex. Global silicone demand is at an all-time high. All the world’s major silicone facilities have fallen behind demand and hiked prices as a result. And some key manufacturers have been hit with other problems, like strike action. …»

Yours sincerely,

David Naylor, Product Manager
Illbruck
