INDUSTRYNEWS Pyramid open dedicated Guardian Roof factory Norwich-based trade fabricator Pyramid Windows has opened a new factory to manufacture the Guardian Warm Roof. The new 6,000 sq ft factory is on the same estate as Pyramid’s main factory which continues to produce Synseal Shield, Synerjy windows and doors and Global conservatory & orangery roofs. Pyramid has invested in state-of-the-art machinery for the new factory to help keep up with demand for the Guardian Roof which is the only solid tiled roof on the market that has full Local Authority Building Control Approval. Ian explains: “By working with our local authority, CNC Norfolk Local Authority, we’ve created a footpath to make it quick and easy for installers to gain approval on all Guardian projects. If the installation takes place in Norfolk we will notify CNC Norfolk Local Authority, who will sign it off once the installer has paid the £150 approval charge. If in another area, CNC will liaise with the relevant local authority on behalf of the installer, simplifying the approval process – so installers can spend more time making money and less dealing with red tape.” Driving home the Network VEKA message Network VEKA members are encouraging their customers to ‘get behind’ the organisation and its Brand Ambassador Steve Davis, by employing the latest van livery from Network VEKA. John Ogilvie, Network VEKA MD, explains: “Our latest initiative aims to encourage more members to utilise the back of their vans to promote the Network VEKA message. “The livery on the back of a vehicle is one of the most useful advertising media that companies can make use of. We have created a stylish template that we think reflects the professionalism 8 APR 2014 and quality that customers can expect from a Network VEKA member. “To ensure that member companies don’t miss out, we’re offering it as a subsidised service: we would provide the designed artwork - which will be personalised with the company logo, business colours and email address. “Once the company has had the livery printed and applied, members simply need to send us a photograph of the completed van to receive a rewarding £100 cash back.” Network VEKA, 01282 473170, Pyramid: 01603 615674, NEW CHAIRMAN FOR GGF HEALTH & SAFETY COMMITTEE John Hawkins of Roman Glass has been appointed new Chairman for the GGF Health & Safety Committee .
