Nov 2011 - NEW WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY FOR FOLKESTONE INSTALLERS
Folkestone trade professionals will receive a welcome boost to business, with the opening of a new store at the Five Acre Trade Estate.
The Window Store, which specialises in PVCu building products including, windows, doors, and conservatories, has opened one of its largest branches in Folkestone, potentially creating four new jobs in the area.
Open to trade and retail customers, the impressive new branch, which features an attractive showroom with a large trade counter, provides everything needed for replacement and maintenance work, as well as new-build residential and commercial projects.
Stocking well-known brands, such as Swish roofline, fascia and soffit boards, Plaslyne’s rainwater and underground systems and Siroflex’s silicone and ancillary range. Other products include PVCu Vertical sliding windows, rooflights, light tunnels and roof domes, all enabling Folkestone installers to easily access products usually only available in bulk or with lengthy lead times.
Commenting on the opening and his new position, Window Store Branch Manager, Daniel Lewis, said:
“I’ve worked in the window industry for many years, as both an installer and specifier, so I know how important it is to have instant and easy access to windows and doors, as well as the associated ancillaries, especially as a lot of our walk-in trade will be emergency repair and replacement work.
“The new branch’s location is really accessible, plus its proximity to other merchants is an added bonus, as trade professionals and keen DIY-ers can pick up all their supplies in one trip. In addition, 80% of our stock is manufactured by our sister companies, within the Epwin group, enabling us to offer competitive prices and quickly source specialist products.
“As a Folkestone resident myself, it is really encouraging to see a company investing in the area and creating new jobs, whilst also offering improved supplier options for local businesses.
“We will be announcing an ‘open day’ in the new-year, but we would like to encourage Folkestone customers to come and visit the new store now to make the most of our ‘Manager’s opening offers’.”
