G13AWARDS THREE G-AWARDS IN A ROW REHAU celebrated its third win in a row at the G-13s when its website was named Customer Care Initiative of the Year. The website, which hosts REHAU’s online thermal calculators and its CE marking tool, proved just as popular with the judges as it has with REHAU’s customers during 2013. Speaking after receiving the award from Dara O’Briain, REHAU’s UK Chief Executive Martin Hitchin said: “The G-Awards get more competitive every time so we’re delighted to have won for the third year in a row. It’s particularly pleasing this time to be recognised for our innovation and commitment to customer service, following on from the award for our marketing in 2012 and for our product development in 2011. The website is an online solution that provides REHAU customers with a BFRC, FENSA and CERTASS approved calculator for WER and U-Values and incorporates a CE marking compliance tool. It is continually updated resource which is available free and which has received more than z0,600 visits since January 2013. At the G13 Awards, REHAU also congratulated customers PJ Plastics who were named Installer of the Year and Roseview Windows who won New Product of the Year.

In the glitzy and glamorous G-Awards only the very best companies are presented with an award, something that Solidor is being increasingly used to, with two other local business awards in the last two years. The composite door pioneer also sponsored the GM Fundraising casino, which raised over £1,100 on the night. Retail campaigns are notoriously difficult to make effective for companies that are primarily set up to deal with the trade. Yet Solidor’s entry was packed with impressive statistics such as the introduction of 375 Recommended and Premium Installers, the growth of web traffic by 94.7% and a 532.46% increase in leads from the website for the first 7 months of 2013. Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor Group commented: “I can’t tell you how thrilled we all were to win the award. The award shows just how much we are growing as a brand not just in the trade, but in the eyes of the consumer.” Visit, call 01782 847300, e-mail or follow @solidorltd on Twitter or look them W
