PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS to deliver ‘special’ foiling colours even more quickly. Covering every product launched by the innovative systems company, the showroom beautifully displays the full and diverse range and provided a real buzz among visitors as they got ‘hands on’ with the products. Mick Clayton, CEO of GQA Qualifications Ltd, commented: “It was great to be at the opening of Liniar House and have the opportunity to hear from Roger and Martin on the story so far and what’s next; whilst on a completely different scale, the ethos and culture that was highlighted is very much something that we at GQA try to operate and promote. “Lord Digby Jones was also an entertaining speaker with a number of common sense anecdotes and thoughts that fit perfectly with the theme of the day. “The day looked to be a great success and the facilities are fantastic.” Charlotte Davies, Head of Marketing for Edgetech UK, said: “The new facility is impressive and the large showrooms are a great addition as it’s good to be able to experience INDUSTRYNEWS the current range as well as reflect on how far the company has progressed over the years. “The tour impressed upon me the attention to detail and pride that everyone at Liniar takes in what they do and it made me proud to be part of the same group as such a market- leading company.” INSTALLERS ARE PART OF THE FAMILY Martin Dera, Director at Homeworks Solutions in Bath, was highly impressed with the new facilities: “As I have come to expect from the team at Liniar, the official opening day spoke volumes for the company’s ethos, as well as to serve as an indicator for future growth plans. “Everyone I spoke to on the day had high praise for the new purpose-built facility and the showrooms, as well as the future Liniar Training Academy - which I would definitely like to attend once it’s up and running. “As an installer we are at the end of the supply line and frequently overlooked, at least prior to our association with Liniar. We really are made to feel like part of the family and our invitation to attend the opening day only goes further to reassure this belief and encourage us to push the Liniar brand forward at the coalface.” Throughout the day, many guests commented on the extensive timeline on the wall of the new showroom, which begins in 1974 with the formation of HL Plastics, and leads up to 2017 with the launch of the EnergyPlus90 Passive House window system and the opening of Liniar House. This huge graphic leads visitors through each step of the company’s progress, with world events from the same year putting things into a wider context. It’s difficult to believe that Liniar’s chamfered window system was launched less than ten years ago in 2008, given the incredible progress of the brand over that short period of time. It will be interesting to see how that timeline continues to grow. Find out more about the Liniar product range at and follow Liniar on Facebook at LiniarUK for a photo gallery from the day itself.
