2011 Review

Composite Door sales increased by 50%. Planitherm Glass sales increased to obtain best thermal performance products.

EN1279 & WER audits completed keeping us as one of only a few companies in Worcester that are compliant with regulations

First Triple glazed window manufactured

BFRC Saga 2010 into 2011

We have at long last got our products listed correctly, we will now fit labels to frames for compliant purposes. This saga took from 13th September 2010 to 14th January 2011 to complete, (should have taken 4 weeks)

To achieve Window Energy Rating products have taken a lot of time but confirms St Johns Window Centre as market leaders manufacturing windows in Worcester.

Window Energy Ratings (WER) are the industry standard for compliance of revised building regulations since October 2010 

Please note some companies are reporting to sell "A" , "B" or "C" Rated windows it they can not show you label and paperwork trail they have not got an Energy Rated Window.

Please call me if you are unsure or confused and I will do my best to explain.

St Johns Window Centre are also EN14351 compliant and can declare U values of doors we manufacture.

 

2010 Review

2010 ended up as good sales year with full order book taken into 2011 no doubt partly due to customers ordering to beat VAT increase. 

Computer system upgrade started

Legislation costs imposed with no results to display are disappointing, but we are apparently in front of most of our industry.

 New Products included Pilkington K on Optiwhite

We signed into Worcestershire County Council Trader Register Scheme.

 

 

2009 Review

One of our more proactive years (we seem to have gone against the media reports and had a good year) Trading Highlights include

Products manufactured for the first time

Legend PVCu Windows & Doors with Artisan range of coloured foil products available. Foiled Grey outside Rosewood inside just one of Artisan Foil jobs we manufactured.

Swiss spacer warmedge units

Manufacturing Job using Solaglas Planitherm Total (soft coat Low E) glass with argon cavity - warm edge spacer bar and Pilkington Activ Blue (self cleaning and solar control in one). The Best of both manufacturers brought together and manufactured in Worcester.

We also moved Showroom and updated this web site with some great results
