Leading VEKA trade fabricator Glazerite Windows Ltd has teamed up with Network VEKA, of which the company is a key member, in sponsoring the Window Competition of the Master Fitter Challenge Finals, which will take place at The FIT Show on the 16th and 17th April.
Glazerite’s involvement is far more than just branding however as the company will supply all of the windows that the eight finalists will install live during the two day’s of the Challenge. This provides a superb opportunity, says Glazerite’s Jason Thompson: “The Master Fitter Challenge aims to highlight and reward best practice, excellence and professionalism amongst window, door and conservatory installers, this mirrors the ethos of both Glazerite and Network VEKA so we were keen to get involved. Being able to put our name to this as well by supplying the windows for installation is a great opportunity to show the quality of our VEKA products, actually being installed and under tough conditions.”
The Master Fitter Challenge Finals take place at The FIT Show, which takes place on the 16th, 17th and 18th April at The International Centre, Telford. The finals are the culmination of an event that began in November last year. By their conclusion GQA Qualifications, who are managing the event for The FIT Show, will have sifted through and interviewed dozens of entrants and visited sites all over the country to arrive at the final eight contestants.
The FIT Show’s Paul Godwin says the interest has been phenomenal: “I am impressed by the number of installers that have thrown themselves into this event who clearly have tremendous pride in what they do,” says Paul. “Installers can make or break a job and ultimately the reputation of the installation company, whatever the size of the organisation. I expect the finals to be a rowdy and exciting affair. And with a total of £10,000 at stake there is cash as well as pride at stake, Glazerite and Network VEKA’s support is very welcome indeed.”
