Synseal Joins The GGF

Synseal Extrusions, the leading UK-owned systems supplier, has joined the GGF and at a recent GGF Window and Door Group meeting, Head of Marketing Mark Schlotel was presented with their framed Membership certificate by Brian Baker, GGF President and Nigel Rees, GGF Group Chief Executive.

Nigel Rees commented, “We are delighted to welcome Synseal into Membership.As a major supplier of PVC-U windows and doors profiles and insulating glass units along with their conservatory and orangery roof businesses they will offer valuable input to the Federation’s technical groups and discussions.”

Synseal is also delighted to be joining the GGF and CEO David Leng comments; “We had been invited to attend a couple of GGF meetings as a guest and we were impressed by the excellent work that the association is carrying out on behalf of its Members, particularly the ongoing efforts to lobby Parliament to ensure that the new emerging Consumer Rights legislation provides a fair deal for all. It is important that the Bill protects the rights of consumers whilst offering sensible levels of assurance for good, honest tradesmen retailing home improvement products.”

David continues, “With our extensive window and door product range as well as innovative solutions such as our latest aspirational orangeries, we can offer insights that should help guide the GGF as it champions the issues that face our industry.”

More than 650 fabricators manufacture using Synseal’s profiles and, according to Insight Data research, well over 3,600 installers regularly purchase and fit Synseal products including their Global and K2 roofs.

David continues, “Naturally, we will be encouraging everyone in the wider Synseal network to acknowledge the productive work of the GGF and consider the practical support that the Federation can offer – the latest challenges facing our retailing partners involving Minimum Technical Compliance are a great example of this. And of course, at Synseal we are also interested in contributing to the GGF Groups such as the Window and Door Group and the Conservatory Association. I am positive that we can offer insights that should help guide the GGF as it champions the industry issues and develops the technical standards.”

Nigel Rees adds, “The GGF Membership is growing in quality and quantity, it’s great to have a company of Synseal’s standing join the Federation at a time when the industry is facing so many changes and key issues. The GGF exists for Members but it’s our Members that make the Federation the leading authority in the industry.”
