REHAU STRENGTHENS SALES TEAM
REHAU STRENGTHENS SALES TEAM
As its UK operations gather momentum again, REHAU’s Windows Solutions Division continues to invest in its team with the hiring of Hannah Smith as a Sales Promoter.
Hannah moved to the polymer solutions provider following four years with Synseal as an Account Manager and then Area Sales Manager. She will be bringing her extensive skills and understanding of the windows market to bear assisting REHAU installer customers in the south of the UK.
Hannah will be responsible for serving the needs installers in this area, covering both residential and commercial portfolios. One of her key responsibilities will be to grow the business and promote REHAU’s market-leading window ranges within her region, including the Rio Flush Fit and TOTAL70 Window and Door System.
Barry Gilligan, Sales Director for Window Solutions at REHAU, comments: “Hannah’s talent for sales, customer service and business development, combined with her expertise in the windows and uPVC market, means she is ideally placed to help us expand our southern UK operations. This appointment is of great strategic importance as we look to emerge from this COVID-disrupted period as strongly as we possibly can, and Hannah’s experience and enthusiasm for our market-leading products will be key to this.”
This new appointment is the first of a number planned for REHAU’s Windows Solutions division. The company also plans on hiring Areas Sales Managers for the Northwest, Midlands and East Anglia region, and a Head of Sales for the southern region as the fenestration industry begins to recover from its pandemic-enforced lockdown.
“There’s no getting away from the fact that the business landscape has been dramatically changed by the coronavirus, so it is now more vital than ever that installers and fabricators invest in good value, high-performance solutions,” says Hannah. “With that in mind, I am very much looking forward to getting out there and meeting customers, and assisting them through this unprecedented time with not just REHAU’s portfolio of reliable and eye-catching window ranges, but also their sector-leading marketing support and services offering, including REHAU Connect and the Authorised Partner Program.”
REHAU WINDOWS REFLECT WELL IN LUXURY CALA SITE
WINDOWS REFLECT WELL IN LUXURY CALA SITE
With a strict specification to adhere to, the pressure was on for REHAU window fabricators Dessian, when they were asked to complete a very unique and premium installation in an upmarket Glasgow suburb.
Dessian has long been regarded for its high-standard position within the window market, so it came as no surprise when developer, CALA Homes (West), approached them for help on their Riverside at Bothwell development. This installation however, required Dessian to adhere to stricter than usual residential requirements.
Considered to be a well sought-after area, Bothwell is located in the heart of the major transport links, within close proximity to both Glasgow and Edinburgh. Although it was just a small development for CALA, it was a very idyllic and affluent one, nestled right on the Clyde River. It is therefore, unsurprisingly, a hotbed for the rich and famous. That being said, challenges were set and standards were high.
In total, CALA Homes was tasked to construct 12 large modern houses and apartments, with all the windows and doors specified in the popular anthracite grey profile. The first challenge came in the specification; the development needed to be modern, yet in-keeping with the area’s traditional heritage. Dessian had to strike a fine balance to ensure that the build was progressive and contemporary in style, but still held onto the natural look of the semi-rural area.
As exclusive fabricators of REHAU windows for over 30 years, the team at Dessian was confident in using the TOTAL70 tilt and turn, and casement windows. CALA wanted a particular look and Dessian was certain that their REHAU range would fit well. Not only did the range conform to the modernity of the specification and incorporate the anthracite grey colour profile, but also emphasised the light and space range of the surroundings to add character to the homes.
The second challenge for Dessian came in the installation process itself; keeping to a tight time schedule with as little disruption as possible. Dougie Irvining, Assistant Site Manager at CALA Homes (West), was particularly concerned that because of where the site was situated, in a quiet residential area, the construction phase would cause some disturbance to the local residents.
Dougie commented: “It was important, that the onsite builders were considerate of the residents living there. At the end of the day, they were moving through a leafy suburb area that hadn’t been disturbed for a number of years.”
For this reason, it was imperative that the job was completed as quickly and quietly as possible. Having experience with REHAU’s TOTAL70 profile, and confidence in the solid quality of the product, Dessian could assure CALA that it was a one-set job that would not fail.
Upon reflection of the installation, Elaine McDermott, Business Development Manager at Dessian, was impressed with the installation: “There was initial concern that the new build wouldn’t blend into its surroundings, and that it would create some tension with the local residents. We’re really pleased with our work here, the REHAU range complemented the high-quality build and surpassed all expectation – it all just came together to create a really modern and clean look.
“For us in particular, it was a really good chance to demonstrate what Dessian and REHAU can do together. We got to show the best of the product, and the best of the installation. The windows and doors form a significant part of the development, and we really utilised the light and space range to make the most of the riverside views.”
Windows are a key selling point for a new home, and having to blend in with the local surrounding meant the pressure was on. In summary, Samsara McDonald, Commercial Sales Manager at REHAU (Scotland) commented: “We are very proud of the work our long-standing partners, Dessian, have done here. The TOTAL70 range is demonstrative of REHAU’s mantra of windows being reinvented for modern life.”
