SUNTRADEWINDOWS OPENS DEPOT NUMBERTEN


REHAU fabricator Sun Trade Windows is holding an Open Day on Tuesday, 18 October at its new depot in Gloucester.


The depot, at Unit 16, Eastern Avenue Trading Estate, Gloucester, GL4 3SJ, is the tenth Sun Trade branch to open as the company continues its successful expansion across the south of England.


Much like Sun itself, the Gloucester depot has


gone from strength to strength since its launch and the Open Day will be a chance for new customers to meet the team and see the products on offer and for existing customers to help celebrate the success so far.


The Open Day starts at 9am and refreshments will be available throughout the day.


Graham Davies, Commercial Director at Sun, said: “We have always enjoyed enviable success


with our depots and the new branch at Gloucester has been no different. Since the opening, customer feedback on the service and support which the depot is providing has been fantastic.”


Sun Trade already had nine well established


depots across the south of England but is not resting on its laurels and is pushing ahead with an ambitious expansion programme supported by its customers and suppliers.


Graham continued: “We have always had a strong presence around Gloucester but only now do we have the facilities in place to be able to service the increasing number of customers in this area. For us, it’s not just about bringing customers on board but also about ensuring that all those customers who do switch to Sun receive the level of service which meets our exacting standards. I am genuinely looking forward to welcoming


customers old and new on 18 October to share a piece of the company’s history.”


Many of Sun’s partners will also be present at the Open Day including REHAU, Yale and Global with their Evie display centre providing expert product advice and information.

GGF AND FENSA ISSUE WARNING OVER GREEN DEAL MISINFORMATION


Following a recent explosion of misinformation appearing in print and online about the Government’s Green Deal initiative, the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and its sister company FENSA have issued a warning to members, companies and the general public.


Both senior industry organisations are strongly advising all its members, registered businesses and homeowners not to be persuaded into committing to the many bogus schemes, websites, conferences or agreements until all the facts are revealed by the Government in 2012.


GGF AND FENSA STATEMENT


The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and FENSA are seriously concerned at the number of companies and organisations using the Green Deal term and concept in an attempt to lever glass and glazing businesses and homeowners into buying products and services – much of which is based on little more than speculation and supposition. This misinformation could potentially cost businesses and consumers a lot of time and money once the full facts are made available in 2012.


The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has been in constant


discussion with GGF and FENSA since the outset of the Green Deal plan in 2010 and the GGF/FENSA are now at the cutting edge of Green Deal developments for the glass and glazing industry, in terms of the financial, political and technical implications. According to DECC, the full facts on Green Deal will be known in Spring 2012 after the Secondary Legislation is passed in parliament. Until then it is impossible for anyone to pre-suppose how it will actually work in practice and of the scheme’s true and full impact on the glass and glazing industry and homeowners wanting to install energy efficient windows.


Given that the full information on Green Deal has not yet been released, the GGF and FENSA advise all members, registered businesses and consumers to wait until all the information is available rather than potentially waste time and money on what might happen, rather than what will happen when Green Deal is launched in October 2012. The GGF and FENSA will continue in ongoing dialogue with the Government and be actively involved on all glass and glazing

matters relating to the Green Deal and Energy Efficiency including a pilot scheme, right up until its launch – October 2012.
