Steel Window Association: "I was also keen to use steel frames as they are in keeping with the style of the building which dates from the 1930s", Hannah Mercedes-Carter

GLASSOLUTIONS "Number One Kirkstall Forge is set to provide highly desirable office spaces, built sensitively and responsibly as well as giving a respectful nod to the industrial heritage of the Aire Valley. To have played a part in a project like this feels very special," Paul Casterton, contracting operations director

CMS Window Systems "The new Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries project was a superb project to be part of and we are delighted to have been part of the project team". Stephen Anderson, Aluminium Contracts Director

Thermoseal Group: "Offering a more energy efficient alternative to Aluminium is currently important in Europe where there is a U-value penalty on windows", says Head of Marketing and Communications Samantha Hill

CENSolutions "GB Joinery is a well invested, extremely experienced joinery company making some truly fantastic products. The fact they are the only timber manufacturer in Manchester to have Window Energy Ratings says a lot about the type of company they are," adds: Joint Managing Director Wayne Rogerson

Lonsdale Metal Company: Prestigious buildings featuring Lonsdale systems include The British Museum, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, The V&A Museum, St Pancras and Kings Cross Stations and homes of Sir James Dyson, Richard & Judie Madeley, The Cartier Family and HRH Prince Edward and Sophie Countess of Wessex

Guardian Industries: "The first time I heard about this project, I was baffled. It may seem crazy at first, because it is about building something like a greenhouse in a desert, where on top of it all, the traditional houses are cave houses, which were originally excavated by the locals to adapt to this extreme climate. " Miguel Pérez Navarro, mayor of Gorafe

Epwin Glass: "We are one of the leading manufacturers of insulated and energy-rated glass units for the window industry and we supply the trade, light commercial, new build and social housing sectors", commented Katrina Earl, national sales manager.

Balconette "For purchasers whose requirement to preserve clear views is absolutely imperative, then our SG12 fully frameless glass balustrades fit the bill perfectly, " says CEO Effi Wolff.

SFS Intec: "Switching to the Swish system has enabled us to achieve an important uplift in quality, and one that has been amplified through our decision to use Dynamic 2D hinges". Group Managing Director, Chris Shearn said

Conservatory Outlet: "We have further ambitious plans for both businesses in the coming months which will see plenty of further investment for the Group. We’re looking forward to a very successful trading period ahead. " said CEO Greg Kane
