Deceuninck is delighted to be celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. One of the top PVC-U extrusion companies with operations across 75 countries, over 2 million products are made from Deceuninck profile in the UK every year.
Deceuninck’s Rob McGlennon comments: “Our long heritage lies in working closely with fabricators to develop tailored solutions to help them grow alongside delivering true innovation to the market time and time again.
“There aren’t many companies with such a long history, let alone such a successful one, but we’ve continued to fulfil our ambitious growth plans by putting both our trade and commercial customers at the heart of everything we do. We know that to help our fabricator customers grow we need to understand their needs, listen to what they want from us and do everything in our power to give them just that. We are fortunate to have the resources and skillset to make this happen. We also understand the market and watch closely for the latest trends before they hit so that we have the right offering for our customers before they even know they need it.
“The launch of our Heritage Window Collection is a good example. We knew the heritage market was going to gain momentum so we developed an outstanding range of products that will help existing or new fabricator customers to make the most of this opportunity. In addition to supplying the right products at the right time, we also develop marketing support that is over and above – marketing support that truly hits the mark and helps our customers and their installer customers, sell.
“Our partnering approach means that our customers remain loyal because they not only get quality products that allow them to get ahead of the market, they also get the ongoing support they need to grow their sales. In a market that is often focused on new business, our customers tell us they appreciate the ongoing level of commitment we offer.
“The Deceuninck way of doing business is, we feel, unique and is why we have succeeded for 80 years. We’re looking forward to the next 80 years of working side by side with our customers to achieve further growth and continue to lead the way in innovation.”
Traditional PVC window frames have galvanised steel inside to reinforce the window frame. With Deceuninck’s Linktrusion® technology (used in Zendow#neo windows), the steel is replaced by using an innovative reinforcement technology.
Linktrusion® is used in 2 ways: as continuous glass fibres embedded in the profile (200,000 metres of glass fibres are used in 1 metre of PVC window frame profile) – or as a recycled PVC foam core with steel wires and a PVC skin which is inserted in the profile.
Fastframe have recently completed a project using Neo Door sash allowing PVC Doors at 1100mm wide and 2400mm high in one sash. This product provides the opportunity for us to compete with the technical sizes attributed to aluminium products but at half off the cost.
Fastframe Uk have recently completed the project at Battery Court in Barking for Quadrant Construction.
Consisting of two 6 storey tower blocks for Social Housing, Fastframe manufactured and installed the Deceuninck 5000 series windows and Doors finished in smooth Grey foil externally with Yellow Door sashes.
Fastframe UK have introduced the New Deceuninck Sash Horn window into their product range.
Available in all of the colourways, this addition enhances the Heritage range with a further option to produce the classic look of Sash windows. These windows are manufactured with a ‘run through’ sash leg and finished with a bespoke moulded end cap, and a mechanically joined bottom rail to give that classic look.
Deceuninck has launched www.MyBrandHub.co.uk – its new print on demand portal to make it simple and convenient for customers to order personalised brochures, leaflets, posters and other marketing tools whenever they need.
Ordering bespoke marketing material is easy and cost effective. Customers get in touch with MRA Marketing, Deceuninck’s expert marketing team, to create a tailored suite. Once the marketing is finalised and approved, it’s uploaded to the print on demand portal for customers to access via their own log-in area to order and send to print. The website stores all users’ details so re-ordering is simple any time of day or night, any day of the year.
Sales Director Rob McGlennon says: “Helping our customers stand out and sell more effectively is an important part of Deceuninck’s strategy. MyBrand is a comprehensive set of marketing material so individual customers can create their own branded marketing easily and cost effectively. They can even choose the level of personalisation they want.
“It couldn’t be easier to create your own bespoke suite of marketing aids”, continues Rob. “And the launch of our web to print portal makes it simple and quick for customers to order their new marketing material when they need it.”

Deceuninck has launched InstallerPro, a new service that gives installers a highly efficient and cost effective way to prove their compliance with mandatory regulations. It’s another way that Deceuninck helps fabricators and installers sell, by providing evidence of installer competence that gives reassurance to homeowners making important financial decisions about their home.
Roy Frost, Managing Director Deceuninck UK explains: “The scheme provides support to fabricators and installers to address CE Marking, Window Energy Ratings, forthcoming changes including Minimum Technical Competency (MTC) and also mandatory Insurance Backed Guarantees that both start in June 2014. It’s important that fabricators and installers are ready for these changes so they don’t lose out.” Roy adds: “We’ve also created a distinct and recognisable logo for InstallerPro. The brand stands for trust and reassurance, embodying the professional qualities that homeowners expect and value from their chosen installer.
“InstallerPro is easy for Deceuninck fabricators and installers to access. The service which is provided through our partners Certass includes a dedicated microsite where installers can register jobs and self-certify installer competence. The site also covers mandatory insurance backed guarantees as well as WERs, Thermal Ratings Register (TRR) and CE Marking for microenterprises with 10 employees or less and a turnover of up to £2millon.”
