GLAZERITE’S JASON ELECTED TO NETWORK VEKA STEERING GROUP


TUFFX APPOINTS STEVE HALFORD AS NEW SALES DIRECTOR


TuffX Processed Glass Ltd - the name behind the new “Ambience Conservatory Roof Glass” range has welcomed the appointment of Steve Halford as Sales Director.


Steve, 46, joins the company at an exciting time with a number of other new initiatives being introduced including the immediate availability of the new Ambi-bronze tint self-cleaning glass specification as well as the ability to now provide roof glass units up to an staggering 4.0m projection.


MD Graham Price comments: “Tuffx has a hard


earned reputation for flexible and reliable service, along with a passion for product development and innovation.


“We continually seek to provide all our customers with exciting new sales opportunities. Knowing that our growth is entirely dependent on their success, any chance we can give them to offer USP’s is our driving ambition.


SHARED VISION “Steve has extensive experience in our sector


having spent nearly 10 years with Ultraframe, latterly as their Sales Director. I believe Steve shares our vision, dynamism and passion for excellence and believe he will be a huge asset to our business”


Steve told Clearview that he is naturally excited about his appointment. When asked his reasons for joining Tuffx he said, “The entire conservatory sector has experienced previously unprecedented, challenging times over recent years. Unfortunately, this has seen many well established brands fail and I’m sure there are a variety of reasons for this. However, I’m convinced that a sure fire way to become part of these sad statistics can be attributed to a failure to innovate and to truly listen to your customers.


CLEAR DIRECTION


“Adapting to customer needs and remaining flexible with the execution of well-thought out strategies is vital. When speaking with the Management team at Tuffx it was abundantly clear to me that this is one business which would not fall into this trap.”


“I very quickly realised that these guys have clear direction and managed growth plans having a loyal customer base.


“Above all else, there are great people across the entire organisation so it is easy to see that everyone shares the same goals, which they strive to achieve each and every day.”


“I really can’t wait to be part of the exciting times ahead. ”


Anyone wishing to understand better exactly what Tuffx can offer as a specialist roof glass supplier can do so by contacting the head office, or by ringing Steve Halford directly on 0845 3 400200.
