In making the announcement Chris Mayne, CEO of CORGI Fenestration commented “Liniar passed the CORGI Fenestration audit with flying colours and will be the first to display the CORGI Fenestration mark that tells its fabricators, installers and consumers that the business is committed to best practice when it comes to quality products, qualified staff, and the best in customer service.”
“There will be huge benefits for Liniar’s fabricator network with its Approved Fabricator Scheme also becoming CORGI Fenestration registered. This means that if a fabricator has already achieved Liniar Approved status, it can become CORGI Fenestration registered in its own right through a reduced audit process”.
“There are also benefits for Liniar’s installers. Any installers who already have existing GQA- awarded qualifications will be recognised by CORGI Fenestration and will be eligible to join the scheme as well”.
“Liniar installers who become registered and buy Liniar products through a CORGI Fenestration Registered fabricator will be able to offer their customers the assurance of the highest quality throughout the whole supply chain and will be able to carry a CORGI Fenestration branded qualifications card”.
Liniar’s Chief Executive Roger Hartshorn reinforced the company’s decision to join forces with CORGI Fenestration. “We’re delighted that Liniar is the first PVCu system house to join the CORGI Fenestration scheme. CORGI is a name that’s synonymous with trust and quality, values that we also hold dear at Liniar.
“There are many ‘approved’ schemes already in place within the industry that are little more than marketing exercises, so we fully support the independent scheme launched by CORGI Fenestration. We feel it will help to raise standards across the board, from system house to installer, which will have only benefit the consumer in the long run”.
“We believe that we’ve set the bar high by being the first systems company to be audited and accredited by CORGI. The audit has also backed up the validity of our own Liniar Approved Fabricator scheme, which will enable our customers to benefit from a reduced audit to use the CORGI Fenestration mark.”
Chris Mayne added: “We knew that Liniar were of the same mind-set as ourselves and so it was no surprise that they committed to our values of trust, reliability, expertise and quality.”
“We look forward to working with them over the long haul and to helping them realise the outstanding benefits associated with the CORGI name”.
