PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS Competition winner celebrates new windows » » AN EAST SUSSEX WOMAN IS treating her two children to a family holiday with the money she’s saved by winning new windows from Saint-Gobain Building Glass. Karen Bulmer, a part-time admin officer for the NHS is the first winner of the quarterly prize draw, where Planitherm installers encourage their customers to win back the cost of their windows and installation, up to the value of £10,000. Ms Bulmer spent £3894 on new white uPVC casement windows from Whiteline Manufacturing, which were installed by Heathfield Windows. She said: “I couldn’t believe I’d won and was waiting for the catch. I’d saved for a long time to be able to replace my old draughty windows and now the house is so much warmer, and the windows look great too.” John Vigor from Heathfield Windows said: “This is a superb competition and Ms Bulmer is a genuinely deserving winner. As soon as I heard about the prize draw I emailed the link to all my customers and encouraged them to enter. I’m really impressed with the new Planitherm marketing material – it really helps to explain to customers the choice of glass available and the huge impact on the performance of your windows.” Fabricator marks 20/20 milestone » » FRAMEXPRESS, ONE OF THE UK’S largest independent fabricators of PVC-U windows, doors, conservatories and composite doors, is this year celebrating 20 years of business, and 20 years of fabricating Profile 22, an Epwin Window Systems brand.
