  All for one
Three more of the UK’s house builders have signed up to GAP’s one-stop-shop ‘Power of One’ integrated supply model.
Following the acquisition of the SIG Building Plastics and SIG Windows businesses in August 2017, Blackburn- based GAP became the UK’s largest distributor of PVC-U roofline, cladding and trim products to the UK’s new home building sector.
In September, Taylor Wimpey committed exclusively to GAP for three more years and the following month Persimmon moved its entire roofline supply contract to GAP in a ground- breaking new two-year solus agreement. In early November Redrow handed the GAP Nationals team joint responsibility for its PVC-U fascia, soffit and ancillaries supply.
As well as these, GAP’s end-to-end manufacturing, logistics and 112-Depot distribution system is already the building materials source of choice for Lovell Homes, Miller Homes and Keepmoat.
Paul Sowerby, GAP’s director of group sales and marketing says:
Eurocell has brought smoother, easier one touch operation to its Aspect bi-fold door system with the introduction of a new, improved double-bogie roller system.
The range’s door
leaves feature both
horizontal and
vertical multi-
directional rollers
which offer
superior glide from
eight stainless steel wheels.The rollers are in-built to the leaves for a minimised height threshold as standard, while they are also captive within the track – preventing their removal from the outside.
The improved, easy touch, smooth movement of Aspect complements an already extensive list of features and benefits that make it one of the most popular bi-fold systems on the market today. ❐

Off to steal the show
 Hardware distributor,Window Ware will be bringing over 30 years of experience, specialist knowledge and first-class service to Germany for Fensterbau 2018.
The Bedfordshire firm says it will be joining other leading British brands exhibiting in the UK Pavilion.
“We’re very much looking forward to exhibiting at Fensterbau, showing to businesses across the industry the competitive advantage Window Ware can deliver through an optimised supply chain,” says Sam Nuckey, managing director of Window Ware.“We work in close partnership with a wide range of businesses as an extension of their operation, ensuring they always have the supplies they need to meet their targets and keep the business moving.
“Fabricators and installers have to manage their time profitably and if they need to add extra time or stock
   “For house builders, the chance to engage quickly and effortlessly with every stage of the supply chain via a single point of contact is obviously important, but the big difference is the commercial transparency and financial clarity that come with it.” ❐
     because their current supplier is unreliable, they can’t do this. Our £2.5m inventory enables next day delivery on 97% of our stock. We have long-standing relationships with the industry’s best-known and most-trusted brands, covering everything from window and door hardware, to factory tools and consumables, creating an incredibly valuable proposition for fabrication businesses of all sizes.” ❐
