REHAU Windows to host online CPD courses
Installers and fabricators from across the UK are being invited to take part in a new series of CPD courses from REHAU, focusing on key subjects within the fenestration industry.
As the impact of COVID-19 has disrupted opportunities for companies to provide in-person and classroom-based learning, the polymer solutions provider has moved its CPD offering online. As a result, professionals in the windows sector can keep up-to-date on the latest solutions and technology available while adhering to social distancing rules.
The previous successes of REHAU’s digital learning courses earlier in the year has led to the company providing further interactive learning opportunities throughout the Autumn and into December across its Windows and Building Solutions divisions. The company has already seen enthusiastic uptake for its series of CPD sessions for building services professionals over September and October, and is now revisiting its online learning offering to the fenestration industry after previously hosting digital classes in June.
These new courses will cover the latest innovations in window solutions and curtain walling, and will be presented by sector expert Nicola Clark. With over a decade’s experience in the fenestration and construction industry, Nicola will be bringing her expertise to bear in sessions that will include a presentation and the provision of further learning materials.
Each course will also include a Q&A element, in which participants can interact with Nicola and further direct their own learning. Dates, times and course topics are as follows:
• Windows Solutions – 13th October, 9:00 AM
• Curtain Walling – 28th October, 9:00 AM
• Windows Solutions – 16th November, 4:30 PM
• Curtain Walling – 2nd December, 4:00 PM
“Social distancing measures and restrictions around group gatherings have meant that we have had to be more innovative with how we present and offer our CPD courses,” says Nicola. “However, despite this disruption, the fenestration industry marches on, with projects continuing to be progressed and new innovations constantly in development.
“Consequently, we wanted to offer installers and fabricators more ways to keep up with the latest technologies and solutions available to the sector. While we would prefer to carry out learning in person, moving our training offering online has provided us with a excellent way of remaining in contact with windows professionals despite the impact of COVID-19, and give them opportunities to further expand their skillsets.”

REHAU PRIORITISES OPERATIONS AT PVCR
REHAU PRIORITISES OPERATIONS AT PVCR
REHAU has redoubled its commitment to sustainable operations with the appointment of Ceri Davies as General Manager of PVCR Ltd., within the larger REHAU Group.
Ceri has a comprehensive background managing operations within various prestigious companies. This includes 15 years at the Duracell Group, two-and-a-half years as a Production Manager at Procter & Gamble, and almost a decade as Operations Manufacturer at Widex, the hearing aid solution manufacturer. Before joining PVCR Ltd., he had been providing operations consultancy in various industrial sectors.
Based in Runcorn, PVCR Ltd. is the largest UPVC recycler in the North West, processing over 13,200 tonnes of postconsumer polymer windows and doors every year. The company moved to its new purpose-built site in 2020 as part of its continued heavy investment into upgrading its PVC recycling capability and improving overall sustainability.
REHAU’s work at PVCR Ltd. is part of its wider efforts to boosting the company’s recycling capacities throughout Europe for its windows production operations. Its long-term efforts in this field, alongside other initiatives, has seen the company selected to join the prestigious 50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders initiative, which is led by Bloomberg in co-operation with the United Nations.
As part of this ongoing strategy, PVCR is constantly looking to refine its processes, and are confident Ceri can utilise his extensive skillset in operations management to help further develop new and existing methods.
Gary Simmonds, Operations Director at REHAU Windows, comments: “As a company, REHAU is extremely conscious of its impact on the environment. In everything we do, from moving to new premises to overhaul our recycling capability, to employing the best possible people, we are constantly looking for ways to make our recycling processes more efficient. Indeed, it is these efforts promoting circular economies that recently saw us selected as one of the 50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders, among other leading companies worldwide.
“Ceri’s expertise in operations management will therefore be key to further refining our processes at PVCR and ensuring we can continue to make recycling accessible to all. We are extremely confident he will hit the ground running and make a big impact in his new role.”
In addition to his impressive depth of experience, Ceri holds a degree in Product Design with Mechanical Engineering from Loughborough University, and is a Black Belt in DMAIC (6 Sigma) methodology. He also has vast training in Lean transformation programs and project leadership – skills he will bring to bear in his new role.
“Though the fenestration industry has experienced massive disruption due to the coronavirus, sustainability continues to be a pressing concern for the sector,” says Ceri. “In fact, it is more important than ever that we prioritise green-conscious solutions such as recycling as the industry recovers from this unprecedented shock. With that in mind, I am hugely looking forward to playing a part in growing REHAU’s already formidable waste management and recycling capacity by optimising processes across the new Runcorn site.”
