PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS WINDOW AND HARDWARE PARTNERSHIP MARKS QUARTER CENTURY MILESTONE » » THE CLIMATEC GROUP AND leading hardware distributor VBH is this year celebrating 25 years of successful partnership. Climatec started manufacturing PVC-U windows at a small factory unit in Southend- on-Sea in 1993, and quickly established itself in 1993 within the industry. In 2012 the company launched Alu-tec, an exclusive range of aluminium windows and doors. Climatec now fabricates over 1,400 frames a week for trade customers throughout England, from 11 factory units spanning 50,000sq ft. Climatec relies on VBH for a range of high performance hardware solutions for both PVC-U and aluminium product lines. Steve Barker, Director at Climatec, says: “It makes sense for us to buy most of our hardware from one source and VBH is a true one-stop-shop. Our contact at VBH, Jan Holland gives outstanding service. Face-to- face meetings are an important part of the relationship, building loyalty and efficiency between Climatec and VBH; we know we can rely on their support. And twice weekly deliveries ensure we always have the correct products and quantity of stock to fabricate our windows and doors to the high quality our customers expect from us.” THE BAR IS SET AT GLASSTEC » » THERMOSEAL GROUP IS set to host its popular ThermoBAR to coincide with the Glasstec 2018 Exhibition in Düsseldorf.

BUCKINGHAMSHIRE’S BEST » » ROSEVIEW, THE SASH window specialist, was named Buckinghamshire’s best uPVC supplier at the BUILD 2018 Construction and Engineering Awards. BUILD’s quest for exceptional uPVC suppliers led it to Roseview – the UK’s foremost uPVC sash window manufacturer, respected country-wide for its commitment to authenticity and innovation – and after investigating the fast-growing firm further, BUILD crowned it Buckinghamshire’s best. “We’re thrilled to be named best uPVC supplier, especially in our home county of Buckinghamshire,” comments Sales Director Richard Burrells. “After years of dedicated product development, we’re now a highly profitable, multi- million-pound business with a nationwide reputation – and have created a range of high-quality timber-alternative sash windows that are the most authentic on the market.” Roseview Windows is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of uPVC sash windows. While its much-celebrated Charisma, Heritage and Ultimate Rose products are based on window designs by systems companies Eurocell and Rehau, it manufactures its own components to create windows that are totally unique. This year, Roseview’s forty-first, the firm has hit £10m turnover for the first time and appointed its hundredth employee, while continuing to invest extensively in improving an already market- leading product range and win new customers throughout the UK.
