DOORS&WINDOWS composites proving to be top choice »»PJ Plastics has upgraded its stunning showroom in Bexley, Kent, which now features ten beautiful Solidor composite doors. The Showroom Bexley was formally opened up by the local mayor, with local MP James Brokenshire attending the first formal day of opening for the Premium Installer, just 18 months ago. The company’s reputation was enhanced back in 2013, when they won G13 Installer of the Year and has built a very strong reputation in the local area. Statistics have also shown that the sales of Solidor products in The Showroom Bexley have also come at the expense of timber, a clear indication of the product design and quality that’s inherent in a Solidor. Joe Martoccia, managing director of Solidor concluded:”This is a perfect example of a premium showroom environment and their sales speak for themselves. With new product development and point of sale material in the pipeline, we’re ready to raise our game even further, to support our network partners such as PJ Plastics.” To find out more about Solidor, then log on to www. solidor.co.uk, call 01782 847300 or e-mail enquiries@ solidor.co.uk Reversible Cleaning and Total Safety »»Sheerframe 8000 Top Reversible windows from Synseal fully reverse for ease of cleaning in total safety from inside the building.
