INDUSTRYNEWS A CHAMPION’S WIN FOR TUFFX! The recent win for TuffX Brand ambassador, David Price, has placed the former British heavyweight champion back in the top ten ranking. David, who has 17 wins to his record including 15 Knock Outs, stopped Euro level heavyweight Ondrej Pala (33-5, 23 KO’s) on 12 April 2014 at the Blue Water Dokken, Esbjerg, in Denmark. Initially, David was caught off balance when Pala threw one of his few power shots of the fight, but he fought back and came on strong in the second round by landing a couple of strong right hand punches which sent Pala dropping to the canvas. After a second knockdown, referee Freddy Rafn halted the fight at 0:33 of the third round. Graham Price, Managing Director at TuffX reports positive response to the company’s sponsorship of David. “I have been very surprised. I had not realised how many people followed the sport.” David will be back in the ring next month to face 39-year-old Yaroslav Zavorotnyi (16-6, 14 KO’s) from the Ukraine in a scheduled 8 round fight at the Sport and Congress Center, Schwerin, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany on 7 June. Good luck David!

The restoration of a number of staff apartments which are part of a constituent college at the University of Cambridge, required tailored solutions to complete their transformation. 10 JUL 2014 The renovation at Murray Edwards College is the first phase of a huge restoration project which must respect the original features of the building. More than £25,000 has been invested in new windows, doors and French doors, which being in a conservation area, required Local Authority approval. Insulation and easy maintenance were pre-requisites stipulated by the frameXpress customer. As a supplier of premium products with a reputation for excellence, the quality guarantees were already known to the frameXpress customer who was responsible for this phase of the restoration. The frameXpresss traditional range provided the ideal solution for a project that required meticulous attention to detail and a highly skilled team to achieve successful results. Every care was made to ensure that all component parts reflected the high standards associated with a Cambridge University College. Call 01952 581100. To read more, visit
