Kenrick: the West Bromwich-based firm has reported that sales of its market-leading Easi-Fit window lock have soared by 50% whilst sales of the Excalibur multi-point locking system are up by 25%.

West Port: “our fire-rated products are among the most robust and reliable in the industry. We treat 30 minutes as a bare minimum, not a target,” commented Ken Mercer, commercial sales director

Edgetech: Roof Maker is celebrating ten years of partnership with Edgetech. “The more glass a product has, the higher the risk of it losing heat and energy — which is what makes Edgetech's Super Spacer such a vital part of every product we produce,” commented CEO Paul Mildenstein

Brisant Secure: “I was so impressed I made Lock Lock the standard option rather than an upgrade,” says Martin Harris of Qualitere Windows

KOMMERLING: have launched a smooth slate grey foil (one side) for the C70 Gold window and PremiLine patio door systems, in response to customer demand for an additional shade of grey.

Solidor: has added an exciting new Home Visualiser option to its online Door Designer. The new tool is already proving a great hit with homeowners, who can design their new door online and then see what it looks like on their property.

A plan – why do we need a plan ?

Some time ago we spent a couple of days locked away in a conference with the HR Directors and people responsible for recruitment and retention in some of the biggest of organisations in the UK. Frankly the amount of company wealth swimming around that room was extraordinary and the speakers were equally impressive, the head of “experienced recruitment” at Price Waterhouse Coopers, the largest professional services firm in the world for example. It is sobering to think of the budgets these people manage, PWC alone need to recruit 3,500 people a year!

The ability to recruit and retain the best people was seen as a core competency, not something that would just happen and effort energy and resource was dedicated to it.
