EDITOR’S INTRO NO SHORTAGE OF GOOD NEWS


As the April issue of Clearview goes to press, we seem to be looking at a somewhat mixed picture for the industry for the remainder of 2011.


Inevitably, there is some doom and gloom about the industry’s prospects, and the recent Budget disappointed in many ways.


But it is often out of uncertain times that comes a sense of commitment, a determination – not only to survive, but to do better. We sense that feeling within the industry, with so much being achieved.


So in this Spring issue, we have tried to bring you plenty of good news – and there is, we are pleased to say, no shortage of that.


Companies that are doing great business, not just in the UK but worldwide. Companies that are expanding, diversifying, doing their bit for the community, for charity. Individuals coming up with progressive, new ideas to take the industry forward.


With long Easter holidays now upon us, maybe it is not a bad time to take a


step back and look at the many positives. And if you have any good news stories – remember, we want to hear about


them.


We have been inspired by those taking part in this month’s conservatories extra, and about the many impressive developments going on in Colour Coatings & Foiling.


This month, we also feature Doors & Windows, which again is packed with updates on many of the exciting products now available.


Security is a big part of everyone’s lives these days so we have turned our attention to this important topic this month with our feature on security & hardware and we will be taking a further look at developments in this sector further down the year.


Technology is another aspect of life none of us can ignore, and it is reassuring to find that this industry is becoming more aware and more adept at harnessing technology to enhance efficiency and generate more business.


We hope you find this month’s issue useful and informative. Keep reading and please do let us have your views for the Letters page.
