PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS Growth leads to £700,000 logistics investment » » CAMDEN’S CONTINUED GROWTH has led to investment in its logistic department, with the £700,000 purchase of seven new Volvo lorries. The new additions to the fleet allow for greater loads to be carried as they have extra horsepower, whilst maintaining their eco-friendly credentials with twin fuel tanks, side skirts and roof deflectors. This recent commitment brings the Camden Group’s fleet up to 20 lorries, with plans to invest more over in the future. However high spec lorries are not solely about saving money, they also are good for Camden’s team of drivers. Seamus Lavery, spokesperson at Camden said: “This is a significant expenditure for Camden, but it makes good economic sense. We expect a good return on investment through the savings we will be able to make on fuel costs, as the new lorries are fitted with a ‘long haul fuel package’.” The new Volvo vehicles are now on the road delivering windows and doors around the UK and are also bringing back old window frames to Camden’s on-site recycling plant, ready to be made into new products. More vehicles will be added to the growing fleet as the company continues to expand. EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS EVERY MONTH » » AS A LEADING EUROPEAN manufacturer of high-quality PVC resins, Vynova came first in the ‘Raw Materials’ category, as well as being named overall winner in VEKA Group’s fourth annual Supplier of the Year awards. VEKA Group uses only the highest quality raw materials and components for its industry- leading PVC-U profile systems, and the company is proud to celebrate the suppliers that go above and beyond in both product and service. VEKA Group’s Purchasing Manager Nicola Woods said: “The selection process to become a VEKA Group supplier is rigorous, and then these carefully chosen partners undergo continuous, stringent monitoring to ensure our standards are upheld. “Key suppliers are provided with a monthly ‘vendor rating report’ which outlines how we have judged their performance. They are graded on quantitative data such as number of non-conformances and ‘on time in full’ deliveries, but also on qualitative data such as customer service, flexibility and timely responses to queries. “This means we can closely monitor our supply chain, and continue to provide the best possible customer experience. Suppliers must meet or exceed our expectations each month in order to remain on our approved list.” A GRAND ENTRANCE IN MACCLESFIELD » » SPITFIRE DOORS WAS established three years ago and now has 30 Design Partners across the UK and Ireland; many with S-500 doors on display, plus a new showroom at its Macclesfield head office, with eleven such models; incorporating Automatic Locking, Fingerprint Recognition, Keypad Entry, LED Lighting, Swarovski 32 » A PR 2019 » CL EARVI E W- UK .
