PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS PURPLEX CONFIRMED AS TOP 100 MARKETING AGENCY » » THE PLIMSOLL ANALYSIS Report has identified Purplex as a Top 100 fastest growing marketing agency in the UK.

Specialist agencies, such as graphic designers or PR consultants, will become a thing of the past. “We were delighted to learn that Purplex is featured in the Top 100, especially as there are over 25,000 agencies out there ranging from one-man-bands to global titans. Purplex is a unique offering, we are the only true full- service agency in the building products, glazing and construction industry and we’re really obsessed with delivering tangible growth to our clients.” The Plimsoll Report also highlights some issues facing marketing agencies, with hundreds of businesses struggling financially. Purplex employs over 60 full-time in- house staff spanning PR and content, social media, SEO and PPC, video and photography, creative design and advertising. www.purplexmarketing.com 28 » JUN 2018 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M GOING LARGE IN WIMBLEDON » » IT’S A TOUGH DECISION FOR ANY SME – risk stepping up to your biggest contract ever or to play safe and lose out on a big chunk of business. But it was less of a dilemma for Kent-based Adeva Home Improvements because, as Director Geoff Dwyer explained, the backing of the Glazerite UK Group as well as VEKA was crucial in tackling the job. “We might otherwise have had serious doubts about taking it on,” he said after completing the installation of nearly 3,000 windows and doors as part of a £2.2million refurbishment of Wandsworth’s Wimbledon Park Estate. The job was not without challenges, he continued, firstly in removing the original Crittall steel frames, which were not only set into concrete, but many had to be taken out in a single three metre by two metre piece. Also, the new frames were an unusual combination of side-hung casement and tilt/ turns which might have been a problem for some fabricators, though Glazerite took them in its stride. Adeva installed the A-Rated, SBD specification windows and doors based on the VEKA M70 system, in white for main contractor Mulalley and Company Ltd of Woodford Green on behalf of the London Borough of Wandsworth. www.glazeritewindows.co.uk THE SOLID GEAR VENT SAFETY SHOE – PRECISION SAFETY AND COMFORT » » SOLID GEAR CONTINUES TO modernise safety footwear with the revolutionary ‘Infinity’ technology in this new shoe.
