Trade and retail fabricator PGV Futureform, based in Grindavík, Iceland, has just announced that it has chosen Deceuninck UK as its fabrication partner. PGV will be manufacturing the 2500 chamfered suite. Andrew Gosling of PGV’s, says of the decision, “We have chosen the best profile for Iceland – the Deceuninck 2500 system.”
PGV has chosen Deceuninck for several reasons, but its profiles’ ability to withstand Iceland’s dramatic weather was the principal one. Andrew says, “Iceland’s weather is the ultimate test for any door or window. Extreme wind and rain and sudden changes in temperature within a few hours are typical here. The 2500 suite is perfectly able to withstand these conditions.”
The 2500 chamfered offers PGV other benefits too, not least its adaptability and ease of fabrication. Andrew explains, “We particularly like the eurogroove in the T and Z transoms because it gives us the option of making a stronger opening sash, which our customers often need. Plus the chamfered beading is so simple to install that production times are much quicker than some of the alternatives on the market.”
Also key in the decision was Deceuninck quality and service. Having previously worked with the company’s German-based subsidiary Inoutic, Andrew knows the exemplary standard of service he can expect from his new systems partner.
PGV is a new company, but it’s built on a wealth of experience. Andrew and the company’s partners all have considerable industry experience and set up PGV after Iceland’s recession and banking crisis hit their previous businesses hard. PGV manufactures internally beaded casement windows, residential doors and french doors and has plans to introduce in line sliding doors and pivot windows to the range shortly. While primarily a fabricator it also has its own installation teams who can undertake installations when necessary.
A new company with lots of industry experience behind it combined with Deceuninck quality seems like a recipe for success. Andrew agrees, saying, “We are very optimistic for the future.”
