He was recently presented with a signed Celtic shirt to mark his 25th Anniversary with VEKA, and now Sales and Marketing Director Colin Torley has been presenting some of the company’s long-standing customers with gifts to mark their own 25 years.
Colin travelled to Bower in Caithness to present the team at Norscot Joinery Ltd, and then to Stockport-based Force 8, with a personalised gift of cut glasses and a decanter for 25 year celebrations.
As Colin explains, Scottish fabricator Norscot Joinery, which was established in 1984, has been trading with VEKA since 1988: “Norscot has been one of VEKA’s largest customers north of the border for 25 years, and we have a great respect for them. Just as VEKA has evolved over the years, Norscot has done the same, and we are thrilled to be marking a quarter century partnership with them.”
In Stockport, Colin presented Force 8 MD Dennis Sumner with the gift. The composite door specialist is commemorating its 25th year in business this year, coming from humble beginnings in 1988. Now supplying customers nationwide and across Europe, Dennis says: “We are thrilled to be presented with this token gift for our 25th Anniversary, it is a massive achievement for us, and to be recognised for that from VEKA is fantastic.”
Colin concludes: “It is refreshing to see companies that have stood the test of time in this ever-changing industry, and such an occasion should be shouted about. VEKA has been established for almost as long as PVC-U has existed as a building product, with a heritage stretching all the way back to 1969, and it remains family-owned to this day. This year has seen some fantastic business achievements not just for us, but our customers too, and we wanted to say thank you to those customers, by recognising such momentous milestones.”
