COMPOSITES FOR THE CANARIES Not content with taking the UK market by storm for composite doors, Solidor are now supplying to Lanzarote-based Milnrow Windows through their supplier, CWG Choices. Given the fact that the island is relatively hot all year round, and given its close proximity to Africa and the equator, products need to be able to perform. The Solidor products have already been proven on the Island and that includes the door slabs, frames, cills, hardware and other accessories. Milnrow Windows was established over 35 years ago in Rochdale, building an enviable reputation for product quality and customer service. In 2002 owners Wayne and Richard Warburton relocated the business to Lanzarote and those same core values have now seen Milnrow established as the number one provider of British specification home improvement products on the island. Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor Group concludes: ‘There’s huge confidence in our products overseas and we see further opportunities in Europe.’ www.cwgchoices.com, 01536 271940, or follow them on twitter @CWGChoices. www. solidor.co.uk, 01782 847300 or follow them on twitter @ solidorltd. ‘huge confidence in our products’ 6 FEB 2013 To read more, visit www.clearview-uk.com
